First Look At Ben Mendelsohn As The Sherriff Of Nottingham In ‘Robin Hood’

Get an awesome new look at Taron Egerton and Ben Mendelsohn in Robin Hood (2018)

The official Twitter account for the upcoming Robin Hood movie has released two images from the film, revealing a new look at Taron Egerton as a young Robin Hood and Ben Mendelsohn as the villainous Sherriff of Nottingham.

Surprisingly, the images tease a more contemporary version of the Robin Hood story. While the film isn’t set in modern times, the costumes and style choices appear to be more current than one would expect from this particular time period. Of course, it’s hard to tell from the images, but it seems like the Robin Hood remake is aiming for a more up-to-date style, similar to last years King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword.

Check out the images below:

Discussing the film with EW a few months ago, director Otto Bathurst (Peaky Blinders) revealed how his take on the legend differs to previous versions:

“You don’t become a legend for 800 years if you’ve just stolen a few bags of money from rich people to give to the poor. In my mind, Robin Hood was this sort of seriously militarized anarchist revolutionary, a freedom thinker and a truth seeker. And the more I got into the story, it just became startling how utterly relevant it is to what’s going on in society now.”

Robin Hood stars Taron Egerton as the title hero, Jamie Foxx as Little John, Jamie Dornan as Will Scarlet, Eve Hewson as Maid Marion, Tim Minchin as Friar Tuck, and Paul Anderson in an undisclosed role.
