Robin Hood Honest Trailer

Hey, did you forget there was a new Robin Hood movie last year? It’s hard to keep up since it seems there’s a new version of the legendary outlaw every few years. But let’s be honest, it’s been a long time since any of them were good. And unfortunately, the latest iteration starring Kingsman: The Secret Service star Taron Egerton keeps the trend going.

The uniquely titled Robin Hood is so bad that you probably shouldn’t even accept the money Robin Hood is stealing from the rich, because he probably needs it more than you do after how badly this movie bombed at the box office. But as the Robin Hood Honest Trailer points out, that’s not even the worst part of this new take on Robin of Locksley. Read More »

Ralph Breaks the Internet Box Office

Thanksgiving is always a huge weekend at the box office, with a bunch of new titles packed into theaters while families are together for the holidays. This year was no exception, with Ralph Breaks the Internet raking in enough dough to land the second largest Thanksgiving box office haul ever across the five-day holiday weekend. And not far behind was Creed II, landing the largest opening ever for a live-action film released in this window. But the new Robin Hood starring Taron Egerton and Jamie Foxx? That one didn’t do so well.

Get the full rundown of the Thanksgiving weekend box office below. Read More »

The latest iteration of Robin Hood opens with our hero (Taron Egerton) receiving a letter of conscription into the Crusades, and being thrust directly into the middle of an Iraq War allegory. Robin and his men are dressed in clothes that resemble bulletproof vests, and fire off arrows with such force and speed that director Otto Bathurst might as well have gone all the way and had them toting guns.

It’s a nuttiness and strain for modernity (and modern relevance) that persists throughout the entire film, and perhaps the only thing about Robin Hood that justifies the opening voiceover that claims this to be a Robin Hood we’ve never seen before. On a strictly technical level, no, we’ve never seen this version of Robin Hood’s story before, but we have seen everything that happens in the film in almost every big blockbuster before this.

robin hood featurette

If the trailers for the new Robin Hood have done little to convince you to check out the film, this new featurette might change that. This behind-the-scenes video shows star Taron Egerton training like mad to become the best archer he can be. I had assumed the bulk of the archery in the new flick would be CGI-based, since that’s the way things go now. But if this video is to be believed, a lot of the arrow-slinging is the real deal, and it’s mighty impressive. Watch the Robin Hood featurette below.
