The 'Robin Hood' Trailer Looks Like A Crossover Between GOT & An Action-Packed Leather Jacket Ad
If you managed to cure your ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ hangover in the past few days, then you will have noticed the entry of this warrior; who isn’t exactly a superhero but definitely not any less than the ones who have superpowers.
We’re talking about the upcoming action movie ‘Robin Hood’, the trailer of which quite effortlessly made its way into our YouTube feeds over the weekend. Honestly, this trailer has left us with all kinds of feels and I am going to break it down one by one, right now.
To begin with, for me this movie seemed to be looming heavily on ‘Game of Thrones’ kind of theme. Be it death scenes, romance or an intense action sequence, I could sense a lot of similarity between the two. But, the CGI needs to be given its due credit as the action scenes are awesome.
Honestly, in this 2 minute video I was actually hoping (not really) for Jon Snow or a White Walker to make a cameo, this would have turned the trailer into a bigger crossover than…you already know what we mean. Maybe we won’t miss ‘Game of Thrones’ after this movie’s release? Nah! We’ll still miss it.
Another thing that this trailer taught me is that Medieval England was quite advanced and way ahead of their time. People back then were so fancy, their fashion sense was so on point that Robin Hood didn’t wear anything less than a leather jacket with machine-stitched hoodie. If someone told me that this was not really a movie, but an advertisement for a leather jacket, showcasing the agility and flexibility one gets after wearing it, I would have totally believed them.
In all fairness, maybe they were experimental with their outfits back then, but were stitching machines even invented by that time? Or was it just the costume designer who forgot that it was supposed to be a period fictional drama? As expected, Twitter unapologetically trolled the movie and the costume like it’s no one’s damn business.

What in the world? I can’t believe they did this. Fully machine stitched. Looking at production stills, all costumes obviously machine stitched. They didn’t even try to fake hand sewn. The New Robin Hood line, coming to a GAP near you.

The trailer also made me feel that director Otto Bathurst (known for ‘Peaky Blinders’) was confused while making the movie. Questions like these were probably going on in his mind – “Should we turn him into a superhero or leave him like that? Can we make him look like a superhero without any powers but just a fancy bow and arrow?” Well, the ridiculous rate at which he is shooting arrows can give anyone a headache, so we guess that kind of makes him a ‘superhero’ in his own right.
This revamped fancier version of ‘Robin Hood’ looks real badass and deserves a shot. The movie features Taron Egerton as Robin Hood, Jamie Foxx as Little John, Ben Mendelsohn as Hood’s enemy Sheriff of Nottingham, Jamie Dornan as Little Scarlet and Eve Hewson as Maid Marian.
I am so into this movie, particularly because I want to know what the outcome is going to be like, given how the turn of events is. You won’t have to wait for long. ‘Robin Hood’ which is produced by Leonardo DiCaprio is hitting the theatres on November 21.
