Robin Hood Set Photos Send Us Back In Time
Paparazzi hiding behind a movie set and snapping covert shots of the action aren't just for Hollywood shoots any more. Over on the U.K. set of Ridley Scott's Robin Hood, they've got both the professional snappers at The Daily Mail and an interested fan from HeyUGuys.co.uk taking shots of the extras, the sets, and the props.
Not shots of Russell Crowe in either of these batches, but that's not really the point-- both sets, of everything from Sheriff Nottingham's men on horseback to a half-built castle, give a very good sense of the world Scott is trying to create in the film. Unfortunately for those of us who hoped this would be an interesting twist on the Robin Hood myth, it all looks basically like every other take on Robin Hood we've ever seen. Yeah, yeah, there's only so much tinkering you can do with the look of a film that's set in the 12th century, but still, does it really have to so closely resemble Robin Hood: Men in Tights?
Click on the top two photos for a link to the Daily Mail's piece, and the bottom two for the extensive HeyUGuys photo gallery, featuring 74 snaps of the set. It's interesting viewing for sure, even if the movie at hand is looking less and less inventive by the day.
