Taron Egerton’s Robin Hood is a war-hardened crusader, while Jamie Foxx portrays a Moorish commander mounting a revolt against the corrupt English crown. The trailer, released on Tuesday, shows a gritty, violent version of England with plenty of swordplay and archery.
Eve Hewson stars as Maid Marian. “Fifty Shades of Grey” star Jamie Dornan will portray Will Scarlett — Robin Hood’s half-brother — and a snarling Ben Mendelsohn plays the Sheriff of Nottingham.
“Robin Hood” is opening in the prime pre-Thanksgiving release date of Nov. 21.
Otto Bathurst is directing “Robin Hood” from a script by Ben Chandler and David James Kelly. The producers are Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Davisson, Basil Iwanyk, Tory Tunnell, and Joby Harold. The production companies are DiCaprio’s Appian Way, Safehouse Pictures, and Iwanyk’s Thunder Road Pictures.
Lionsgate also unveiled the investing app Robinhood for a San Diego Comic-Con scavenger hunt titled “Crypto Power to the People.” Attendees will search for coins redeemable for $50, $500, $1,000, or $5,000, which they can use to invest in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin or Ethereum from Thursday to Saturday.
