russell crowe robin hood trailer First 'Robin Hood' trailer: Russell Crowe draws bloodThis ain’t your Kevin Costner‘s Prince of Thieves.

Russell Crowe has stepped into the greenery for Ridley Scott’s “Robin Hood,” and the first trailer promises a darker, somewhat more violent look at the legend.

The first trailer features lots of shots of armies clashing, with Robin (Crowe) seeming to come to a decision by the end and, of course, taking up the longbow. We don’t see much that would indicate Robin’s time in the Crusades, so we suspect the battles will be between King Richard’s loyalists and those of the usurper Prince John. Robin Hood was famously a supporter of the king.

The film also stars Cate Blanchett as Maid Marian, Danny Huston as King Richard and William Hurt as the Earl of Pembroke.
