Russell Crowe in Robin Hood

It's been about three months since we first got a look at Ridley Scott's take on the altruist badass known as Robin Hood. Now, YahooMovies has debuted a second trailer for the inevitable summer blockbuster. While the first trailer didn't impress many, including myself, this one looks to deliver everything we asked for. Check out the trailer, and my thoughts, after the jump.

Excuse me while I pick up my jaw. Holy smokes! Now that is a trailer. This piece of marketing has restored all of my faith in the project, and more! I couldn't be more excited to see this film now. For one, this film showcases the film's overall narrative whereas the first one simply strove to provide some insight as to the tone of the movie. It looks as though we're getting an origins story which shows the rise of Robin Hood from a British peasant to a place where the adoration of the people gives him power and fame.

It looks like Scott is looking to deliver a solid period epic in the vein of GLADIATOR, which is more than fine with me. He's got some serious talent for the genre, considering his last one walked away with plenty of Academy Awards. I see Ridley Scott as one of the greatest working directors, as I've loved pretty much everything he's been doing lately. Yes, even BODY OF LIES. I can't wait to check out this film. Looks to have solid action, good performances, and tons of archery. Definitely hits all my buttons!

ROBIN HOOD hits theaters everywhere on May 14th.
