Lionsgate has released the official trailer for Summit Entertainment’s Robin Hood. This is a new take on the legendary bandit of Sherwood Forest that stars Taron Egerton, Jamie Foxx, Ben Medelsohn and Eve Hewson. The new trailer is surprisingly fun.

Directed by Peaky Blinders helmer Otto Bathurst, the movie dives head-first into the “steals from the rich” part of the tale, after Robin of Loxley (Egerton), war-hardened from fighting in the Crusades, comes back home to find it rife with corruption and evil personified by the Sheriff of Nottingham (Mendelsohn). The clip teases a tension-packed exploration drizzled with humor.

Trained by his Moorish commander Little John (Foxx) — “You were a lord, but now you get to become a thief, and I’m going to show you how,” he tells Robin — they form a band of outlaws and plan an epic heist of the royal treasury in a revolt against the corrupt British crown.

Hewson plays Maid Marian, and Tim Minchin (as Friar Tuck) and Jamie Dornan (as Will Scarlet) co-star in the pic, written by Ben Chandler and David James Kelly. Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson of Appian Way produced with Safehouse Pictures in association with Thunder Roads Films.

Robin Hood is opening in the prime pre-Thanksgiving release date of November 21, against Disney’s Ralph Breaks the Internet, STX’s Jennifer Lopez comedy Second Act, Universal’s comedy-drama Green Book, and MGM’s boxing drama Creed 2.

Check out the trailer above.

The official synopsis reads:

Robin of Loxley (Taron Egerton) a war-hardened Crusader and his Moorish commander (Jamie Foxx) mount an audacious revolt against the corrupt English crown in a thrilling action-adventure packed with gritty battlefield exploits, mind-blowing fight choreography, and a timeless romance.

"Between the teaser and trailer, Lionsgate is selling Robin Hood as a Batman Begins-esque medieval hero origin story, complete with highly stylized action and set pieces. It only makes sense, seeing as Robin Hood films past have always reflected the popular tastes in action movies for any particular decade. Case in point: Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves was a swashbuckler in the style popular in the '90s, 2010's Robin Hood took its cues from the historical epics of the 2000s (many of which, like the film, were directed by Ridley Scott), and the 2018 Robin Hood is designed to stand out in the golden era of the superhero film."
