Trailer Online Now for Russ & Ridley’s Robin Hood….

Been reading a lot of press in the local media lately about Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe’s new venture together, the latest incarnation of cinematic legend Robin Hood. No doubt being given the Gladiator-frenetic-rapid-shutter look by directorial genius Scott, and looking for all the world like a genuine epic, this tiny quality trailer comes to us thanks to the good folks over at YouTube. It hints at the realistic nature Scott has chosen to deliver this film in, a far cry from the sugar coated utterly-PG Prince of Thieves version we endured from big Kevin a few years back. Personally, I think it’s a great teaser trailer, almost bereft of dialogue, only allowing the various images to play out to the haunting, lyrical refrain from whatever trailer composer they hired this time out. It smacks of Gladiator II, but those final bow-and-arrow shots really give heft to the concept of the franchise not completely being outdated. Looks sweet!

Normally detesting these kinds of bios, Rodney's keen love of film more often outclasses his ability to write convincingly about them. Never blessed with a body worthy of a porn star, nor being the heir to a wealthy industrialists fortune, nor suffering the tragedy of having his parents murdered outside a Gotham theater, Rodney is, contrary to popular opinion, neither Ron Jeremy, JD Rockefeller, or Batman. As a serious appreciator of film since 1996, Rodney's love affair with the medium has continued with his online blog, Fernby Films, a facility allowing him to communicate with fellow cineasts in their mutual love of all things movie.
