Robin Hood 2018! Yes, the enemy of the Sheriff of Nottingham is returning to cinemas yet again, and for the first time since Ridley Scott’s 2010 movie which I couldn’t get a handle on, although in the last 3 decades, the one the stands out most, for many reasons, is the 1991 entry from Kevin Costner, and not the one with Patrick Bergin from that same year.
Robin Hood 2018 is released in the UK on November 21st.
Check out the new trailer below:
Yes, Robin Hood is back once again like the renegade master, and in the guise of Taron Egerton, he straps on his bow and arrow, jumps and twists and turns in slow-motion, so… it’s Kingsman: The Robin Hood Years, and I’m just surprised that Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman weren’t involved again. However, while I’m not sold on this, once again, I’ll be in the wrong because it’ll make a ton of cash.
Robin Hood 2018 has been put back for its UK release date from September 21st to November 21st.

A little bit about Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, to date, it’s the most rewatchable of the recent films and I remember when it came out in the cinema in the UK, it was badly censored to get a PG, since 12-rated films couldn’t allow kids under 12 like they can now, so violence in the opening scene was cut, and Christian Slater’s f-word line changed to “Blow me! They made it!” as Kevin Costner and Morgan Freeman were catapulted over a wall, but back to the forthcoming movie…
This new movie is directed by Otto Bathurst (Peaky Blinders, Black Mirror: The National Anthem), with Taron Egerton in the lead role, plus Jamie Foxx as Little John, Jamie Dornan as Will Scarlet, Eve Hewson as Maid Marian, and Tim Minchin as Friar Tuck. The cast also includes Paul Anderson as Guy of Gisborne, and Ben Mendelsohn as the Sheriff of Nottingham. The screenplay comes from Joby Harold, who brought us King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.
Synopsis: Robin Hood (Taron Egerton) a war-hardened Crusader and his Moorish commander (Jamie Foxx) mount an audacious revolt against the corrupt English crown in a thrilling action-adventure packed with gritty battlefield exploits, mind-blowing fight choreography, and a timeless romance.
Check out the new images below, and Robin Hood 2018 is released in UK cinemas on September 21st 2018.
