The modern Robin Hood has teased a new Sherwood Forest full of automatic weapons, fashionable battle armour and chic fascist-wear straight out of a Hunger Games reboot.
Starring Kingsman’s Taron Egerton and produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, the movies features Jamie Foxx as Robin and Little John, Eve Hewson (daughter of U2’s Bono) as Maid Marian and Ben Mendelsohn as a sharply-outfitted Sheriff of Nottingham. Fifty Shades star Jamie Dornan is also in the cast, playing Robin’s brother Will Scarlet, and Australian comedian Ben Minchin is Friar Tuck.
Robin Hood follows the story of a war-hardened Crusader and a Moorish commander 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, which is a never before seen story of how our titular hero became the icon and legend as we know him today.
