"Robin Hood" reunites Crowe and Scott in their fifth collaboration together.
Producers are Brian "A Beautiful Mind" Grazer, Scott and Crowe.
The new feature chronicles the life of an expert archer, previously conerned only with his own self-preservation, starting with his service in the army of 'King Richard' against the French. Upon Richard’s death, 'Robin' travels to 'Nottingham', a town suffering from the corruption of a despotic sheriff and crippling taxation, where he falls for spirited widow 'Lady Marion' (Blanchett), "...a woman skeptical of the identity and motivations of this crusader from the forest..."
Hoping to earn the hand of Marion and salvage the village, Robin assembles a gang whose lethal mercenary skills are matched only by their appetite for life.

“Robin Hood and Little John walkin’ through the forest; laughin’ back and forth at what the other’ne has to say.” Ah, Disney’s Robin Hood, what a classic cartoon movie; Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood, however, will not be so warm, fuzzy or musical. Even though I wasn’t a fan of the background music from the latest trailer for Robin Hood, I’m still very much looking forward to watching Russell Crowe don the leather, bows and arrows to give Prince John hell.
Russell Crowe trades in his unmanly roman gladiator skirt for manly, um, tights, to play Robin Hood is this latest take on the English legend of the bad guy turned good guy fighting for the people of Nottingham, by director Ridley Scott (who is somewhat a legend in his own right). Joining Crowe are Cate Blanchett as Maid Marian, Mark Strong as the Sheriff of Nottingham, »

A bootleg version of this Robin Hood trailer showed up late last night but the swiftness with which Universal took it down from YouTube led me to believe the official version would be online soon and sure enough here it is via Apple along with the first three photos from the film.
Robin Hood is directed by Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe stars as the title character as the film chronicles the life of an expert archer, previously interested only in self-preservation, from his service in King Richard's army against the French. Upon Richard's death, Robin travels to Nottingham, a town suffering from the corruption of a despotic sheriff and crippling taxation, where he falls for the spirited widow Lady Marion (Cate Blanchett), a woman skeptical of the identity and motivations of this crusader from the forest.

I'm wildly curious to see what's going on in Sucker Punch. Zack Snyder's follow-up to Watchmen features a wild cast (Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens, Jamie Chung, Jena Malone and Abbie Cornish, with Carla Gugino, Jon Hamm, Scott Glenn and Oscar Isaac) with the first five names as a group of girls locked in an unsavory mental institution, from which they escape through fantasy. It is said to be violent and weird and full of monsters. And now Abbie Cornish says there is...singing and dancing? Rad, count me in. Anyone who says you can't just throw a dance number in a genre film needs to re-familiarize themselves with The Happiness of the Katakuris (Takashi Miike) and/or Zatoichi (Takeshi Kitano) or just go back to (500) Days of Summer, though the latter obviously isn't a genre flick. But it's not as easy as just dropping in a number here and there. »

It was only five years ago when the Australian Film Institute Awards reached their most sad and pathetic moment. 2005, the year that will live in infamy for followers of Australian film, produced only one (One!) film that the AFI felt worthy enough to award. Cate Shortland's Somersault was nominated for and won every.single.category. The really sad thing is that it probably deserved to win them all, which says more about the slate of Aussie films that year than anything else.
Sidebar: Two of Somersault's wins were for Abbie Cornish and Sam Worthington's performances. The former is on the cusp of Oscar and the latter on the cusp of global fame and worship. You could do worse than seeing where these two learnt the ropes.
This year's AFI awards, however, are a much different story. 2009 has been a stellar year for Australian cinema - perhaps the »

Alejandro Amenabar's "Agora" epic which has not been able to pick up a U.S. distributor for six months, will now be brought to theatres via Newmarket Films.

Minghella plays her son Davus who is conflicted between joining Christianity and his mistress. »
After first debuting at the Cannes Film Festival some six months ago, Alejandro Amenábar's Agora has finally been picked up for distribution in the Us by Newmarket Films (who has released other indies like Death of a President and Passion of the Christ). Agora is an ambitious $60 million film that tells the story of religious conflict in Roman-governed Alexandria as the Christian and pagans battle, often violently, for religious and intellectual supremacy. The period story centers on he enlightened thinker Hypatia as well as both her philosophical and romantic conflicts. Rachel Weisz stars as does Max Minghella and Oscar Isaac. "Alejandro Amenábar has crafted a film that not only offers a visual spectacle but also deals with religious intolerance in a way that makes this film feel modern and relevant even though it is set centuries ago," said Exclusive Media Group (who recently bought Newmarket) co-chairmen Chris Ball in »

Carla Gugino is carving out an unusual career that ranges from playing a secret-spy Mom in the family-friendly franchise Spy Kids to a pregnant porn star in Women in Trouble. Gugino is currently re-teaming up with Watchmen's director Zack Snyder in Sucker Punch, playing a character that Gugino told the Palm Beach Post will require her to perform more than just a dual role.
I'm a psychiatrist at an asylum and, in an alternate world, a dominatrix, choreographer and madam in a brothel. I sing and dance. I'm Polish and I have red hair. That's all I'm going to say. I have this amazing scene where I do this wild stunt over and over. All of a sudden I was like, "I'm covered in bruises. How did that happen?"
Gugino told Movieline that she won't be alone in her song and dance routine, either.
Oscar Isaac and myself, we sing a duet. »

Dave here, reporting from the London Film Festival one last time. It's been my first full-on film festival, and if I said I wasn't dying to lie in my bed for twenty-four hours in a deep sleep, I'd be lying. But it's been a fantastic few weeks, a reignition of my passion for film, and an experience I'll probably never forget. Below, you can read my full review of Nowhere Boy, the John Lennon picture that received its world premiere as the festival's Closing Night Gala, and then my own personal set of "awards". But first, a big thanks to Nat for making it all happen, and I really hope you've enjoyed my coverage and that you'll seek out some of these movies - should you, of course, be given the chance.
Nowhere Boy begins with a couple of coy nods to that which it avoids mentioning explicitly - the Beatles. »
Universal Studios has released synopses for some of their major 2010 films and the two that are especially worth reading are “MacGruber” and Ridley Scott’s “Untitled Robin Hood Adventure”. While it might surprise you to hear this, a few people have told me “MacGruber” is going to shock everyone next year as it’s a super-violent, hard-r movie. Also, I’ve heard there are many lines that we’re all going to quote. Did I mention Val Kilmer plays the villain and his name is Dieter Von Cunth? I know, I know–I am just as shocked to report SNL’s “MacGruber” might be a great movie.
As for Ridley Scott’s “Untitled Robin Hood Adventure”, this synopsis is the first real story details I’m hearing about the plot. Since I haven’t watched every version of “Robin Hood”, I’ll let the synopses do the talking, but I »
