A motto for life and epic storytelling: Fight hard, aim straight, and steal back what’s yours.
Taron Egerton, Jamie Foxx, Eve Hewson, and Ben Mendelsohn star in Robin Hood 2018. The epic, action-packed film is coming to theaters and a forest near you November 21st.
This is the newest version of the classic tale directed by Otto Bathurst and co-produced by Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson.
Ben Chandler and David James Kelly wrote the story.
Men in tights….just kidding…Robin of Loxley (Taron Egerton) is a war-hardened, tough Crusader. Fighting alongside his Moorish commander (Jamie Foxx) they and their followers build and deploy a thrilling revolt. Dissent looms over England and war is declared. A fierce battle ensues against the English crown. A monarchy corrupted and brutal. The spin on this classic? Among other things the battles feature
automatic weapons and the latest in fashionable battle armour.
Jamie Foxx in an interview with Entertainment Weekly last year described the film:
He said: “It’s different.
“The way they shot it was crazy, it looks like you’re watching Zero Dark Thirty.
“We’re shooting with our bows, but they computer-generated it, so it’s rapid-fire, almost like an AK.
“I saw that and was like ‘Oh, they ain’t ready for this.”
Filming lasted from February 20, 2017- November 21, 2018, at various locations in
Dubrovnik, Croatia, and in Le Raincy, France.
Robin Hood is set for wide release in all IMAX theatres by Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment
