In the 9 years since Gladiator came out, the Ridley Scott/Russell Crowe combo has never quite been able to match its original success. But with the upcoming Robin Hood (previously known as Nottingham), Scott and Crowe are hoping to change all that. Today we've got your first look at their take on the iconic hero.
You can see more of Russell as Robin by clicking above, but here's the lowdown on the revamped bandit character from producer Brian Grazer. He told USA Today: "[Crowe] doesn't have the old Robin Hood tights. He's got armor. He's very medieval. He looks, if anything, more like he did in Gladiator than anything we're used to seeing with Robin Hood."
He looks fine to me for now, but if Crowe really wants to get in character, how about kicking back some of that ungodly salary to a few of today's poor?
