Interrupting your summer schedule of sequels, reboots and sequels to reboots is the first trailer for Robin Hood – a ‘brand new’ take on the classic (and notoriously under-adapted) story.

It’s not all bad, and the charming cast of Taron Egerton and Jaimie Foxx could go a long way to making this an enjoyable romp.
Robin Hood hits cinemas in November. Take a gander at the trailer below:
