Robin Hood Trailer: Gladiator II


Robin Hood’s been through so many iterations (our favorite: Cary Elwes’s smirking wiseass, of course) that we’d assumed Ridley Scott would whip together a brand-new take for his big-budget reimagining. What we didn’t realize is that he’d take the opportunity to basically make a Gladiator sequel: In the new international trailer, Russell Crowe does his rampaging Maximus bit again, complete with ferocious sword-wielding and horse-riding, plus forehead-bleeding straight out of a WWE “no holds barred” event. Seriously, doesn’t this thing look like it could have been spliced together from the forest battle in the first twenty minutes of Gladiator?
