Lionsgate‘s “teaser” trailer for Robin Hood gave us a glimpse into an already established and trained thief. The first official trailer shows us how Little John (Jamie Foxx) put an end to Robin of Loxley (Taron Egerton) and helped create one of the greatest folk heroes of all time, Robin Hood!
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.
After watching the first two trailers, I have to say I’m really optimistic about this film. I love the Batman Begins-like approach we’re seeing from the Otto Bathurst picture. In the daytime, he’s Robin of Loxley rubbing shoulders with the rich and powerful. Later, he’s the pickpocket stealing all of their riches and donating them to the poor! It’s an unforeseen but appreciated depiction of the timeless tale.
If you’re attending San Diego Comic Con, you can get in on the riches too, as Lionsgate plans on giving away $50,000 worth of prizes at the annual event!
Robin Hood, directed by Otto Bathurst, hits theaters November 21, 2018, starring Taron Egerton, Jamie Foxx, Ben Mendelsohn, Jamie Dornan, Eve Hewson, and Tim Minchin!
