Robin Hood International Poster: Robin Holds An Arrow
What's the one image you know for certain will be part of any given Robin Hood movie? No, it's not the long flowing locks of whichever male star has been tapped to play the lead-- it's Robin holding a friggin' bow and arrow, an image that has been part of the character since King John.
So if Ridley Scott is trying to revamp the character with his new movie, shouldn't he try to change up the imagery a bit as well? Apparently not, as the first international poster for the film has debuted over at Hey U Guys, and it's precisely the stern look and taut arrow you've come to expect. I'm not asking that they show off Maid Marian in armor or Robin sitting around the campfire or anything, but even a spark of originality wouldn't be a bad thing.
Check out the poster below, and keep your fingers crossed for something a little more exciting from the American poster. There's also an official synopsis, also not telling us much of what we haven't heard below, included below that. It curiously refers to the movie as "untitled Robin Hood adventure," even though the poster has the title as Robin Hood. Mistake, or sign of a new title to come?
Oscar winner Russell Crowe stars as the legendary figure known by generations as “Robin Hood,” whose exploits have endured in popular mythology and ignited the imagination of those who share his spirit of adventure and righteousness. In 13th century England, Robin and his band of marauders confront corruption in a local village and lead an uprising against the crown that will forever alter the balance of world power. And whether thief or hero, one man from humble beginnings will become an eternal symbol of freedom for his people.
