Taron Egerton, famous for his role in Kingsman film series, is all set to play Robin Hood in Lionsgate’s take on the much admired legendary and literary character and the trailer was recently released online. The movie is simply titled, Robin Hood. The character has been adapted in many films, with most of them falling far short of the charm of their literary counterpart. The film, being directed by Otto Bathurst (Peaky Blinders), also stars Jamie Foxx, Ben Mendelsohn, Eve Hewson, Tim Minchin and Jamie Dornan.

The movie is said to be only inspired by the stories instead of a direct adaptation. Robin Hood is also popular as a concept of a man looting from the rich and distributing the booty to the poor and the less fortunate. In the trailer, we see Robin Hood’s character as a man with a Bruce Wayne – Batman style alter-ego. He is a nobleman who gives advice to the Sherriff of Nottingham in how to catch himself, and not the outlaw on the run as the stories go. The version looks good.

The trailer is packed with visuals and firefights that would have been impossible before the 15th century when first ballads pertaining to the legend of Robin Hood first appear. In this age of special effects, viewers can only hope that they will get an improved version of time the movie hits theatres. Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the producers.

Jaime Foxx will be seen playing the role of Robin Hood’s best friend Little John, a mentor and maybe a trainer as well. Ben Mendelsohn is the Sherriff in this film, plays an implacable enemy of Robin Hood. Jamie Dornan is Robin’s half-brother Will Scarlett.

The official synopsis say, “Robin of Loxley (Taron Egerton) a war-hardened Crusader and his Moorish commander (Jamie Foxx) mount an audacious revolt against the corrupt English crown in a thrilling action-adventure packed with gritty battlefield exploits, mind-blowing fight choreography, and a timeless romance.”

Robin Hood is all set to release on November 21, 2018.
