Universal Pictures has released the Superbowl TV spot for their upcoming action tentpole Robin Hood, from director Ridley Scott. The film stars Russell Crowe in the title role, as a crusader from the people who steals from the rich, gives to the poor and sword fights to some kick-ass heavy metal music. The whole thing looks like a blast, even if Crowe is getting up there in years.
The film will also star Cate Blanchett, Mark Strong, Matthew MacFadyen, Danny Huston and William Hurt. All signs point to a traditional story of Robin Hood, but more in the bloody vain of Gladiator. Doesn’t sound so bad, if you ask me.
Robin Hood is in theaters May 14, 2010. The Superbowl spot is below, courtesy of Yahoo Movies.
