Robin Hood – New poster. Look Russell’s on a horse

Posted by LiveFor on April 19, 2010

I’m still not sure whether this is going to be good or suck great big ones. Not really been impressed by anything I have seen on it. I hope Ridley Scott does us proud.

Robin Hood – 1st poster for Ridley Scott’s new one – A man and his bow

Posted by LiveFor on December 23, 2009

The excellent HeyUGuys posted the first posters for Ridley Scott’s take on the Hooded Man. I kind of like the poster, but to be honest nothing about this film has really grabbed me. It just seems like the same old same old and very Gladiator in the woods. and I still think Errol Flynn was a cracking Robin Hood.

Personally I would have liked them to have gone the slightly mystic way as they did in the old TV show, Robin of Sherwood. That’s the one that starred Michael Praed (then Jason Connery) as Robin alongside Will Scarlet (Ray Winstone), Little John (Clive Mantle), Friar Tuck (Phil Rose), Much (Peter Llewellyn Williams), the Saracen Nasir (played by Mark Ryan) and Lady Marian (played by Judi Trott). He was also assisted by Herne The Hunter (John Abineri). As in the legend, Robin is opposed by the Sheriff of Nottingham (Nickolas Grace) and Guy of Gisbourne (Robert Addie). Now that was a cool show.

Here’s the synopsis for the new Robin Hood film:

Oscar® winner Russell Crowe stars as the legendary figure known by generations as “Robin Hood,” whose exploits have endured in popular mythology and ignited the imagination of those who share his spirit of adventure and righteousness. In 13th century England, Robin and his band of marauders confront corruption in a local village and lead an uprising against the crown that will forever alter the balance of world power. And whether thief or hero, one man from humble beginnings will become an eternal symbol of freedom for his people.

The untitled Robin Hood adventure 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 (Oscar® winner Cate Blanchett), a woman skeptical of the identity and motivations of this crusader from the forest. Hoping to earn the hand of Maid Marion and salvage the village, Robin assembles a gang whose lethal mercenary skills are matched only by its appetite for life. Together, they begin preying on the indulgent upper class to correct injustices under the sheriff.

With their country weakened from decades of war, embattled from the ineffective rule of the new king and vulnerable to insurgencies from within and threats from afar, Robin and his men heed a call to ever greater adventure. This unlikeliest of heroes and his allies set off to protect their country from slipping into bloody civil war and return glory to England once more.

John Carter of Mars – Mark Strong talks about the beginning of a trilogy

Posted by LiveFor on December 17, 2009

Collider have a great interview with man of the moment Mark Strong. He talks about his roles in Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes, Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood and Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass.

However, he also spoke about Pixar’s John Carter of Mars. The adaption of Edgar Rice Burroughs work is directed by Andrew Stanton it stars Taylor Kitsch as John Carter, Lynn Collins and Willem Dafoe. Strong plays the villainous Matai Shang and it sounds as if this could be a mind blowing film.

“I play a character called Matai Shang and he is the ruler of a group of people called the Ferns who are like the old Olympian Gods. They exist….people aren’t really sure if they exist, but basically he’s a master of the Universe. They travel ’round keeping order in the Universe. So basically he exists over and above the Martians that exist on the planet. Like I say, he’s like an Olympian God. I mean getting to play Mati Shang Master of the Universe, it doesn’t get much better than that.

He is, over the course of the 3 movies that they’re envisioning making and I’ve seen the synopsis of the 2nd and 3rd, basically and in the novels, Princess of Mars that Rice Burroughs wrote, Matai Shang is basically John Carter’s nemesis. So he comes into his own during the 2nd half of the current movie and then just basically gets bigger and bigger in the 2nd and 3rd.

With the mix of live action and CGI it sounds like it could be along the lines of Avatar, but when asked about whether it was in 3D Strong said he had not been told if it was.

I don’t believe so. Not that I know of, no. I’ve certainly never heard that or been told that. No, I know it’s a combination of live action and motion capture. That’s all I know for right now.

I mean it looks phenomenal. I mean his conception of it is extraordinary. I mean it’s “Avatar” type territory and I think the point I was making before about these Pixar’s guys are always wanting to be in the vanguard. They want to be leading from the front. They’re giving the public stories that the public don’t even know they want. I mean a story about a fish? A story about an old guy keeping his house? On paper, these must seem like, you know, how on earth are you going to carry those things off. Talking toys? Come on. But they I think Andrew said they’re in the business of giving the public what they want before they know they want it. So I can totally imagine he’s gone to see “Avatar” and that’ll just set the cogs whirring in his brain and the twinkle in his eye because he’ll just want to surpass it, no question.

I think it’s something like a $200 million budget. It starts in January and I actually go through to May. I think some of it is also filming in Utah, so it’s a 5 month production based largely in London with some exterior scenes in the desert I assume in Utah. So it’s a massive production.

This is definitely shaping up to be something that could well be spectacular.

Willem Dafoe talked about the film a while back and went into the development of the Martian culture and language.

Robin Hood -Trailer for Ridley Scott’s tale featuring Russell Crowe

Posted by LiveFor on December 15, 2009

It went from being a film called Nottingham about the Sheriff, to a man who was both Sheriff and Robin Hood and then to just plain old Robin Hood. Here’s the trailer and to be honest it doesn’t really grab me. It just doesn’t seem that Robin Hoody to me.

Oscar winner Russell Crowe stars as the legendary figure known by generations as Robin Hood, whose exploits have endured in popular mythology and ignited the imagination of those who share his spirit of adventure and righteousness. In 13th century England, Robin and his band of marauders confront corruption in a local village and lead an uprising against the crown that will forever alter the balance of world power.
