Various forms of this enduring folk hero have been around for more than 700 years, and this year sees the classic tale reimagined with a modern make-over. Produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, this actionpacked adventure has a distinct glossy music video vibe. Warhardened Crusader Robin Hood (Taron Egerton), with the help of his Moorish commander, Little John (Jamie Foxx), mount an audacious revolt against the corrupt English crown.
Gritty battlefield exploits, mindblowing fight scenes, and a timeless romance transform this remake into a historical superhero blockbuster. The new Sherwood Forest is full of automatic weapons and fashionable battle armour. Jamie Dornan plays Will Scarlett, Robin Hood’s half-brother, Eve Hewson is Maid Marion and Ben Mendelsohn, the snarling Sheriff of Nottingham.
