Robin Hood (2010) Synopsis


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.

The untitled Robin Hood adventure chronicles the life of an expert archer, previously interested only in self-preservation, from his service in King Richard’s army against the French. Upon Richard’s death, Robin travels to Nottingham, a town suffering from the corruption of a despotic sheriff and crippling taxation, where he falls for the spirited widow Lady Marion (Oscar winner Cate Blanchett), a woman skeptical of the identity and motivations of this crusader from the forest. Hoping to earn the hand of Maid Marion and salvage the village, Robin assembles a gang whose lethal mercenary skills are matched only by its appetite for life. Together, they begin preying on the indulgent upper class to correct injustices under the sheriff.

With their country weakened from decades of war, embattled from the ineffective rule of the new king and vulnerable to insurgencies from within and threats from afar, Robin and his men heed a call to ever greater adventure. This unlikeliest of heroes and his allies set off to protect their country from slipping into bloody civil war and return glory to England once more.

The first trailer for Ridley Scott's Robin Hood was more of an experiential thing, giving us an idea of the feel and look of the movie rather than much of an idea of what it was about. But for the international trailer, they're definitely not skimping on detail

Yet Another Robin Hood Reimagining Gets Going Yet Another Robin Hood Reimagining Gets Going

We spent at least a year debating and stressing over Ridley Scott's take on Robin Hood, getting excited when it seemed like he was doing something different and feeling resigned when it became clear that it would be the same old same old. Ready to go through all of that again?

About the nicest thing I can say about Robin Hood is I recognize his right to exist. He's not my favorite character by any means, but I guess hobos, serfs and low-class drifters need to indulge wild, resource redistribution fantasies now and again

You think all the major roles in Ridley Scott's Robin Hood have been filled? Well then you're forgetting the massive importance of William Marshall, a.k.a. the Earl of Pembroke, a.k.a. "a servant to the Plantagenet kings and one of the best jousters of the era." Yeah, I'd never heard of him either. But William Hurt will be playing him in the movie

Robin Hood Coming May 2010 Robin Hood Coming May 2010

Cinema Blend's official stance on Ridley Scott's Robin Hood is disappointment, given that all the cool ideas about making the Sheriff of Nottingham the hero seem to have been shoved aside in favor of making a pretty traditional movie. But hey, we've never been known to turn down a good summer blockbuster, not to mention an opportunity to see Russell Crowe in tights

Scott Explains His Robin Hood Plans Scott Explains His Robin Hood Plans

Ridley Scott's alternate take on Robin Hood, starring Russell Crowe and titled Nottingham, was a movie that really had my attention. I really got into the idea of telling the story from the villain's point of view, and possibly showing the Sheriff of Nottingham in a different light. I also really liked the rumored idea of Crowe playing dual roles, as both Robin Hood and the Sheriff of Nottingham.

Russell Crowe Is Both Nottingham And Robin Hood Russell Crowe Is Both Nottingham And Robin Hood

We've known for months now that Russell Crowe would star in Ridley Scott's new Robin Hood tale as the Sheriff of Nottingham, but there's been no word so far on who might play Robin Hood, until now. Robin Hood is being played by Russell Crowe. The word comes straight from the mouth of Ridley Scott, who says Russell Crowe will play both parts

Another Robin Hood Casting Rumor Another Robin Hood Casting Rumor

Hot on the heels of the rather wild rumor that Christian Bale might be playing Robin Hood in Ridley Scott's twisted Nottingham movie comes another. A guy named Sam Riley is in contention for the role. More specifically, they say Russell Crowe wants him for the part. Crowe is playing the Sheriff of Nottingham in the film, and apparently he saw Sam in a little seen movie called Control

Ridley Scott is putting a sword back in the hand of Russell Crowe. He's signed up to direct Crowe's anti-Robin Hood movie Nottingham. For those who haven't been following along, Notthingham is a twisted take on the Hood legend with Crowe as a Sheriff of Nottingham isn't such a bad guy while Robin Hood is kind of a dick
