Maxim.....Robin Hood

I didn't even know this movie existed until I saw this trailer about 20 minutes ago...Robin Hood is being directed by Ridley Scott (Alien, Gladiator, Blade Runner) and will star Russell Crowe & Cate Blanchett. Honestly, anything that puts the mind of Ridley Scott with the performance of Rusell Crowe is guaranteed to be gold, take "Gladiator" for instance. From the looks of the trailer the new flick will take on a more dark and realistic view of the classic anti-hero. The era that Robin Hood was said to have existed in was brutal times, where the rulers of the land kept their people in fear and poverty(not so different from modern times). Maybe that's why the character Robin Hood has survived the test of time, he's relatable and every generation has their own version.... Robin Hood has a release date of May 14th, 2010. Finally a movie I'm legitimately excited for.
