The legendary figure known by generations as Robin Hood has endured in popular mythology and ignited the imagination of those who share his spirit of adventure and righteousness. In the all new action-adventure epic from Universal Pictures, Robin and his band of marauders confront corruption in a local village and lead an uprising against the crown that will forever alter the balance of world power.
Robin Hood chronicles the life of an expert archer, previously interested only in self-preservation, from his service in King Richardís army against the French. Upon Richardís death, Robin travels to Nottingham, a town suffering from the corruption of a despotic sheriff and crippling taxation, where he falls for the spirited widow Lady Marian, a woman skeptical of the identity and motivations of this crusader from the forest. Hoping to earn the hand of Maid Marian and salvage the village, Robin assembles a gang whose lethal mercenary skills are matched only by its appetite for life. Together, they begin preying on the indulgent upper class to correct injustices under the sheriff.
