Last week we showed you the hard rockin’ trailer for Ridley Scott’s down and dirty Robin Hood film. Today we have the UK poster which has the softer, more subtle approach of Russell Crowe trying to kill us. It features an intense Crowe murderously staring down the shaft of his pointy, shooty thing.
More importantly, the poster reminds us that director Ridley Scott and Crowe once famously teamed up for Gladiator. The point they are trying to make is, if you loved seeing Russell Crowe stab and beat people in that film then you will probably enjoy him stabbing and beating AND shooting people in this film.
"I’ll teach ya to readjust lights while I’m thespianing, ya c*nt."
Given Crowe’s explosive temper, the still looks more like he’s threatening an unlucky lensman a la Christian Bale. Save where Bale uses his words, Crowe goes the more direct route of shooting them in the face.
