Movie Media Roundup: 'Robin Hood,' 'Nightmare,' 'The Experiment'

We've got new footage and a behind-the-scenes featurette for Ridley Scott's Robin Hood, a new clip from the upcoming remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street and the teaser artwork for the psycho-horror film, The Experiment.

So, what're you waiting for?  Dive on in. :)


Oscar-winning collaborators Russell Crowe and Ridley Scott reunite for the fourth time in the latest cinematic incarnation of the legendary 13th century hero, Robin Hood.  The epic period adventure features Cate Blanchett as Maid Marion, Mark Strong (Kick-Ass) as the wicked Sir Godfrey, and a handful of other acclaimed performers -- among them Max Von Sydow and William Hurt -- in supporting roles.

That said, we have a short clip from the film -- which premiered during Russell Crowe's recent appearance on The Tonight Show -- for you to check out:

Yes, it appears that the villainous Prince John (Oscar Isaac) is as grand an a--hole here as he's ever been in previous Robin Hood films.  In addition, the production design of this flick looks top-notch so far and I anticipate that it'll be even more impressive on the big screen.

Additionally, you should have a look at the latest Robin Hood featurette:


While the movie footage here is the same shown in previous Robin Hood trailers, it's always nice to hear what the talent behind a project have to say about it.

Robin Hood hits theaters in the U.S. on May 14, 2010.


We're down to just two weeks now until Jackie Earle Haley makes his debut as the new Freddy Krueger in New Line Cinema's remake of A Nightmare On Elm Street.

Until then, we have a new clip from the horror show which showcases Freddy (seemingly) enjoying himself as he prepares to murder a sleepwalking teenager in a pharmacy:

This footage provides us with a better look at the new Freddy's desecrated face, which I personally find is  not-so-much realistically grotesque but more like a kind of odd makeup job.  Additionally, there are some cliché horror elements at play here (flashing lights, innocent background music right before the monster attacks) that I find questionable as well.

Still, we'll wait and see how it all turns out when A Nightmare On Elm Street slashes it way into theaters on April 30.


For those not familiar with this project, it's a remake of the 2001 German horror flick Das Experiment, which was directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel. Interestingly enough, Hirschbiegel is also the filmmaker responsible for Downfall, the film from which the footage in the popular "Hitler Reacts" Youtube videos are drawn (we even did a version of one here at Screen Rant, check it out HERE).

This American remake stars Oscar-winners Forest Whitaker (Repo Men) and Adrien Brody (Predators) and is directed by Prison Break creator Paul Scheuring.

Here's the plot synopsis for The Experiment (via Shock Till You Drop):

26 men are chosen to act the roles of guards and prisoners in a psychological study. Values are tested and lines are crossed when seemingly normal participants are pushed to the breaking point as the experiment spirals out of control.

Thanks to them, we now have the teaser artwork for the creepy tale as well.

This image is rather strange and foreboding, to put it mildly.  Add the fact that The Experiment was recently Rated "R" for "strong disturbing violence including a rape, language, some sexual content and nudity" and it sounds like this could potentially be a rather unsettling venture.

There's no official date for The Experiment yet, but Columbia Pictures has it slated for a late 2010 release.
