Check Out the New Robin Hood!

Robin Hood will no longer be known as that dude in the green tights and funny feather hat now that director Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe have busted into Sherwood Forest and shaken things up big time. A whole batch of new images, as well as the film's first trailer, have made their way online today – and what they both show is a Robin Hood movie unlike any we've seen before.

As you can obviously tell from the images (see more over here) and the trailer (watch it over on Apple or below), this version of Robin Hood will be much different from previous incarnations in that it looks and feels a bit more rough, tough, dirty and stylized. The film takes place in 13th Century England, and, naturally, follows Robin Hood and his band of misfits as they rise up against the corrupt sheriff of Nottingham to help prevent their country from slipping into a Civil War.
This definitely looks dark and brutal, but I'll be curious to see how audiences react. Are we tired of the Robin Hood story by now, even if this film will most certainly offer us what is perhaps our most intense, action-packed look at the character to date?
Robin Hood hits theaters on May 14th, 2010. Are you looking forward to this version of the character?
