Taron Egerton robs the rich to give to the poor in your first look at “Robin Hood”.
The “Kingsman: The Secret Service” star brings the action to Sherwood Forest as the titular hero in this gritty origin story co-starring Jamie Foxx as Little John, Jamie Dornan as Will Scarlett and Ben Mendelsohn as the nasty Sheriff of Nottingham. Also along for the ride is Eve Hewson, daughter of U2’s Bono as Robin Hood’s love interest, Maid Marian.
There’s plenty of choreographed fight scenes, stunts and, of course, bows and arrows in the movie directed by Otto Bathurst. Bathurst is best known in the TV realm, directing episodes of “Peaky Blinders” and “Black Mirror”.
Fans will have to wait to get a look at “Robin Hood” on the big screen — the movie doesn’t hit theatres until November 21.
