The first trailer for Ridley Scott’s “Robin Hood” starring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett has hit the net and it’s very different than what I was expecting. I dunno, it just watches more like a sequel to Gladiator than Robin Hood. Laced with a very heavy rock track and a lot of sword swinging something about it just seems off to me.

Where are all the forests? Where are all the merry men? Does Robin Hood even use a bow and arrow? If anything, this is definitely a much darker version of Sherwood forest.

Robin Hood hits theaters on May 14, 2010. Let us know what you think of Scott’s new “Robin Hood” below.
