I usually write about posters that I really like or that caught my eye and are very striking. I can’t say that for this new poster for Robin Hood

The Ridley Scott helmed action flick that stars Russell Crowe has done absolutely nothing to get me excited.  This poster (and the last one with Crowe shooting an arrow) have been very bland and boring. There is nothing that sets this aside from the dozen other Robin Hood adaptations (Men in Tights and Disney’s version are tied for my favorite). The original concept Scott talked about where Crowe was going to portray the Sheriff of Nottingham as the good guy, with an evil version of Robin Hood, seemed like a really cool and interesting idea. I have no idea how it got changed and watered down, but when that happened, I lost all interest I had in the project.
