New Robin Hood Stills Featuring Maid Marian

Published 5 years ago by , Updated August 4th, 2013 at 7:25 pm,

One of the many films I’m looking forward to in 2010 is the next Ridley Scott-Russell Crowe pairing for their production of Robin Hood.

Aside from the early controversy (if you can call it that) over what the film would actually be aboutNottingham vs. Robin Hood and who’s playing whom – most of our updates on the Scott’s warrior-esque take on Robin Hood have come in the form of photos taken on set during filming of the production.

The cast for the film is loaded with talent and today we finally have a look at Oscar winner Cate Blanchett playing Maid Marian. Check out the photos of Marian and more after the jump.

What do you think of what we’ve seen so far?

  1. Sweetness.

    I am slowly getting excited about this. I like Prince of Thieves a lot, particularly Rickman’s sheriff. It will be interesting to see how different this story is, both tonally and story-wise.

  2. hate russell crowe full stop. havent watched any of his movies since body of lies and that wasnt because he was in it rather the storyline.

    definitely a pass for me

  3. While I was disappointed Scott didn’t go with the Robin as bad guy angle I’m always up for a fresh, well done take on the classic tale.

    But it’ll never unseat the Errol Flynn version for me. :)


  4. @ Vic

    I have never seen that version. Does it hold up well as a film, or is it more just nostalgic for you?

    I have always heard that Errol Flynn was a bad-@$$ of his day.

  5. Robin as the bad guy would be really cool but it looks like Ridley is playing it safe on this one. I have a feeling he might go for the more mature/dark tone considering most of his movies are pretty violent yet so awesome!

  6. I’m not a big Crowe fan, but I’m a HUGE Blanchett fan! I’ve just recently been blown away by her on stage in DC with Streetcar and to see her go from that to this is astounding. Really, the woman can do anything! She looks so striking on that horse with that long, gorgeous brown hair! My girlfriend hates it when I speak of Cate but I just can’t help myself, she just takes my breath away! Can’t wait for this film!

  7. Gotta say that I2 and this the next week sounds like a good couple of weeks. The E Flinn Robin Hood is awsome, best robin hood by far. Rus is a great actor although body of lies was a horrible story and just sucked. I would hate to judge him on just that although his acting was fine not his fault that the story blew. Anyway, I’m excited to see this spin on robin hood and I hope that it’s different somehow. I don’t want to see glad 2.0 and I hope that isn’t what this is. Great director and actor get the benifit of the doubt in my book.

  8. He was awesome in Master and Commander and Gladiator, he fits very nicely into period pieces. Im looking forward to him as Robin Hood.

  9. Dope screenies

  10. There’s already a trailer for this on the web, which was just released a couple of hours ago I think. I’m looking forward to the film but honestly that trailer was awful.

  11. Daniel,
    Have to agree with you; caught Cate Blanchett’s version of “Streetcar” in New York, she was so, so incredible.l

    Heres a link to the trailer

  13. BRING IT ON!!!

  14. Having seen these stills and the trailer, I must say this painfully dull. I prefered the other idea with Crowe playing Nottingham, at least that would have been something new.

    I agree with Vic, the Errol Flyn version is awesome. But I have so much love for Prince Of Thieves, it is so much fun.

  15. @Syrus817,

    Thanks for the link. Paul picked up on it and wrote it very early this morning :)

  16. Russell is a great actor, can play any part, i didn’t like BOL, but it just goes to show you, Russell is not vain and will take on any character. I am looking forward to this movie. i believe that Sir Ridley and Russell will do it justice. this is suppose to be a version of how Robin Hood came to be, starting from his early years as a child. even if you are not a fan of Russell’s like i am, i am sure the movie deserves fairness. as a team Ridley and Russell are great chemistry.

  17. @Evan

    ACK! Go rent or look for the Errol Flynn version of Robin Hood IMMEDIATELY!


  18. @ Rob Keyes
    No problem, glad to help :)

  19. @Vic

    Will do.

  20. Sorry, I disagree about the trailer, and yet I do agree with you, Barbara, about Russell Crowe. ‘Body of Lies’ was a surprise to some because I think we have become conditioned to expect a certain sort of role from Russell and other lead actors. And so he broke the mold again, which is what has made him a most interesting and talented performer, and a deliciously unpredictable character in general. I think RIdley Scott has made the point that he IS taking a different angle here, fleshing Robin out as a character and lending more historical background and grit to the story. So now we will also see Marion as a much stronger and more provocative female persona. Even if that were not so, no one can pull off such a grandly mythical tale like RIdley Scott. Yeah, Errol Flynn was another hell raiser and he did justice to the story so many decades ago. But the movie industry had grown up since then and so have our tastes, I believe. So count on more depth, richness and artistry here. Looking forward.

  21. I’m not a big fan of remakes. It seems as if Hollywood is running out of Ideas and is constantly either making a 2nd-5th of a movie we never hoped to see again or they’re re-doing classics and spin-offs.

    On a Postive note, I am happy to see Robin hood out of tights, looking alittle more mercenary, and not looking like a pretty boy. Best of Luck

  22. I could not refrain from commenting. Perfectly written!
