A third clip has been released for Universal’s upcoming Robin Hood and it shows the famous hero and his Merry Men in the heat of battle. Yahoo Movies got first dibs on the scene that features Russell Crowe as the title character in the Ridley Scott directed drama. Before you watch, remember this isn’t your grandfather’s Robin Hood. This is a different kind of animal…
Robin Hood tells the story of an expert archer who was a devout servant of King Richard and his fight against the French. When Richard dies Robin visits Nottingham and sees first hand the corruption of its government and the suffering of its people. He also falls for the spirited Maid Marion, a woman who is very skeptical of his intentions. In an attempt to gain her trust he puts together a rag tag group of mercenaries who help shift the balance of power from the rich to the poor.
In the clip it looks like the archers are using fire to take down the French army that’s attacking them. Back in those days, instead of using guns they just got really creative with their arrows.
