If you’re the kind of person that needs dialogue in a movie trailer, the new international Robin Hood trailer is for you. Because unlike the first trailer (from last week) which featured almost no dialogue and a lot of music, this new one is a more straight forward selling of the movie.
While the story of Robin Hood has been told a million times in movies and on TV, I’ll admit to being very excited about this new version. After all, with Ridley Scott directing and a cast featuring Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett, William Hurt, Mark Strong, Danny Huston, and Max von Sydow, how can you not be? Also, as a huge fan of Gladiator, I’m extremely excited to see Crowe and Scott team up again on an action film.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Robin Hood gets released May 14, 2010.

Here’s the synopsis:
‘Robin Hood’ chronicles the life of an expert archer, previously interested only in self-preservation, from his service in King Richard’s army against the French. Upon Richard’s death, Robin travels to Nottingham, a town suffering from the corruption of a despotic sheriff and crippling taxation, where he falls for the spirited widow Lady Marion, a woman skeptical of the identity and motivations of this crusader from the forest. Hoping to earn the hand of Maid Marion and salvage the village, Robin assembles a gang whose lethal mercenary skills are matched only by its appetite for life. Together, they begin preying on the indulgent upper class to correct injustices under the sheriff. With their country weakened from decades of war, embattled from the ineffective rule of the new king and vulnerable to insurgencies from within and threats from afar, Robin and his men heed a call to ever greater adventure. This unlikeliest of heroes and his allies set off to protect their country from slipping into bloody civil war and return glory to England once more.
