The brand new Robin Hood film starring Taron Egerton within the title function had already proven us a really non-traditional tackle the primary character, however it seems that type will lengthen to the movie’s villain as properly. We now have our first picture of Ben Mendelsohn because the Sherriff of Nottingham, and it is a a lot, properly, cleaner, look than we would have anticipated from a narrative that takes place again when bathing wasn’t a major concern.
We would previously seen an image of Taron Egerton and Jamie Fox as Robin Hood and Little John that confirmed that the brand new Robin Hood wasn’t going to be going with a conventional aesthetic, as there wasn’t a little bit of inexperienced on both of them. Whereas there is not essentially a “conventional” search for the Sheriff of Nottingham, we will most likely all agree that Ben Mendelsohn’s look right here, posted to the movie’s official Twitter account, may be very a lot the alternative of what we would anticipate.
Nonetheless, the look is a placing one. He is most likely essentially the most dapper Sheriff of Nottingham we have ever seen on movie. It is not the wildest thought, as definitely the Sheriff is a person of excessive workplace and might definitely afford to look good. Nonetheless, that is the final man we would anticipate to see moving into an epic sword combat with Robin Hood. He’d most likely be too afraid he’d get soiled.
Most of us are most likely extra acquainted with the look from Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. Whereas the Kevin Costner movie had some points, it is Sheriff of Nottingham was not one among them, being performed to its scene-chewing greatest by the nice Alan Rickman.
Based mostly on the look of the brand new Sheriff we will most likely anticipate Ben Mendelsohn’s portrayal of the function to be one thing that’s as totally different from Alan Rickman because the look is right here. There shall be some similarities between the 2 Robin Hood movies, nonetheless, as Taron Egerton revealed that his character can even be a veteran of the crusades, which is similar manner that Costner’s character was launched in Prince of Thieves.
Robin Hood hoped to launch earlier than this coming fall, however the manufacturing schedule of the movie was delayed as a consequence of Taron Egerton’s commitments to the Kingsmen sequel. The origin story film is now set for a September 21 launch.
