Russell Crowe has become the hero of choice for Ridley Scott, in movies like 'Gladiator' and 'Body of Lies.' Now Crowe takes on one of the first heroes ever in Scott's retelling of the classic adventure tale 'Robin Hood.' The movie opens Fri., May 14, and we have a look at the just-released new trailer.

Everyone knows the story of Robin Hood, the outlaw archer who rounded up a band of Merry Men to fight the corrupt rule of King John of England.

This time around however, the story is told by the visionary eye behind 'Black Hawk Down' and 'Blade Runner.' The classic Errol Flynn swashbuckling Robin of Locksley is nowhere to be found; in his place is a gritty outlaw who will stop at nothing to overthrow an abusive government. The film looks to contain a level of medieval combat not usually seen in movies about the bow-and-arrowed rebel.
