Cate Blanchett: New 'Robin Hood' Stills!

Cate Blanchett: New 'Robin Hood' Stills!

Check our these brand new stills of Cate Blanchett as Marian in the much-anticipated epic action-adventure Robin Hood, starring Russell Crowe as the title role.

“Robin and Marian don’t get on at all when they first meet,” says Russell. “But there’s a latent kindness to both these people — they find it in the most unlikely place.”

“There’s a game playing that goes on that’s hopefully quite delicious for an audience to watch,” adds Cate. “There’s a buoyancy that exists between them.”

Robin Hood releases on May 14.

Do we really need yet another Robin Hood movie???

# 2

A geriatric Robin Hood & his aging maiden. Gee. I can’t wait. Speaking of aging maidens, it looks almost as good as the Bounty Hunter – which totally sucked by the way.

# 3

Yes Anna we did!

After the ****** kevin costner film .. We really needed a realistic epic version!

Besides, this one looks awesome .. I mean come on! It’s RIDLEY SCOTT!

# 4

I ,for one, can’t wait for this movie. I think Crowe and Blanchett will have great chemistry together.

# 5

This does not look good.
First of all they’re both too old to play robin hood and marion, it’s ridicoulus.
Second…it’s just not believable.
Wow, hollywood really needs to stop putting Cate in every role, she is great but this would best serve a younger ‘maiden’.
And Russel is just totally miscast. yikes.

# 6

I agree Jen. I am really looking forward to this film! You can do no wrong with Cate the Great!

# 7

Actually, Josie, there is no set “age” for the Robin Hood story as it is not factual. I’d MUCH rather have these talented actors in the role than some pretty young thing who can’t act to save her life. So, you can have your Twilight cast, I’ll take Blanchett & Crowe any day of the week!

After Robin Hood – Men in Tights (so funny!) this was supposed to be the end of an era. I don’t know about this aging Robin Hood and Lady Marian. I love Cate and she is such a great actress but seriously!

Why do Robin and Marion have to be young? Do you criticizing the ages of Crowe and Blanchett think that adventure and love belong only to the 18-22 year olds? I for one can’t wait to see this pairing. Two actors who can actually seriously act! Wow, what a concept–an actor who can actually act! And there are two of them in this movie. Should be great.

Just for the record, the term ‘Maid’, or ‘maiden’ refers to a pure young woman. A woman who reaches Cate’s age (although I adore her), and remained unwed would not still be called ‘Maid’ Marian. Lady Marian, maybe, but certainly not ‘maid’.
She IS too old for the character. But they had to go older because of the ridiculous age of their Robin Hood.
Ridley or no Ridley. Picking someone of Russel’s age and girth was stupid.
You can’t be dashing, virile and heroic when you are gasping for breath after running up a flight of stairs.
No thank you.

Don’t care about the movie, but russell crowe looks hot.

Yes! I can’t wait!

Sometimes Cate looks beautiful, sometimes she doesn’t. This film is a doesn’t.

She is not pretty enough for the role of a beautiful heroine.

bbc version is better

Braveheart was waay better. another remake? Come on.

@mimi:

Prettier than you!

@Josie: Well, Sienna Miller was the first choice for the part of Marian. I don’t know why they ended up with Cate. Anyone know? Did Sienna not want the role or was it because of something else?

they ‘re both great actors but honestly they’re too old for the role it just not believable. they could choose somebody else

Here is a new concept!
This is a movie, make-believe, they can do anything they want and cast anyone they choose.
If you don’t like the remake, Russell or Cate, then don’t see the movie. There are many of us that we see this several times.

Can’t wait!

YOu know back in 1976, Robin and Marian starred Sean Connery and Audrey Hepburn as an aging duo. Got good reviews, audience liked it back then and it made a lot of money.

Not much is really known about Robin Hood. References appear about him as an outlaw, but not about age etc.

So maybe he was older. Maybe he was younger.

I think this will be a really good movie and if it doesn’t appeal to the under 24 crowd, well too bad.

@anna:
sienna is just too young to paired with russell.
anyways, i love cate but she doesn’t look good here at all. and the hair colour is not helping either.

*to be paired

But when you are making a movie based upon well loved, very specific, legendary characters, the public has certain expectations for those characters.
Just as an example….what if Peter Jackson had decided that Hobbits were six foot tall warriors, and that the Elves looked more like the Keebler variety. Using your reasoning, since the characters were fiicticious, he has a right to change anything that he wants. Does that make it ‘right’ though? No. That is being disrespectful to the original author.
Some people will see this movie and enjoy it. But I won’t be one of them. I’ll stick with movie versions that support the original tone of the book. You know, where Maid Marian is actually a ‘maid’, and Robin is not ready to die from cardiac arrest.

Robin Hood for geriatrics.
