Russell Crowe and Danielle Spencer attend the Robin Hood Premiere at the Palais des Festivals during the 63rd Annual Cannes International Film FestivalTwenty-fours after arriving in Cannes, and your reporter's score is four movies, one party and zero celebrity interactions. Which, frankly, suits him just about fine.

First screening was yesterday afternoon's press showing of Ridley Scott's Robin Hood, the official opening night film of the festival. It's solidly entertaining, elevated by a strong cast and the star power of Russell Crowe, sporting a look that recalls his Gladiator glory days. The film was originally going to be called Nottingham, with events seen from the Sheriff's point of view, but the script has evidently journeyed far from that concept, since Nottingham (Matthew MacFadyen) is hardly in it, and the chief antagonists are King John (Oscar Isaac) and a traitorous fellow called Gregory (Mark Strong).
