Following last year's King Arthur, here's yet another well-known story up for a gritty Hollywood retelling. 

British actor Taron Egerton, best known for the Kingsman films, stars as the medieval hero who would steal from the rich and give to the poor, alongside American star Jamie Foxx as Little John.

The film's director Otto Bathurst has described Robin Hood as "this sort of seriously militarized anarchist revolutionary", while producer Basil Iwanyk has revealed that this version of the much-loved character is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, after returning from fighting in the Crusades.

This first trailer gives audiences their first glimpse of the film's CGI-augmented action sequences. According to Foxx, who has compared the film to Iraq War thriller Zero Dark Thirty, digital editing was used make the heroes bows and arrows “rapid-fire, almost like an AK”.

Ben Mendelsohn plays the wicked Sheriff of Nottingham, alongside comedian Tim Minchin as Friar Tuck and Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan as Robin's brother Will Scarlet. Irish actress Eve Hewson, daughter of U2's Bono, plays Robin's lover Maid Marian.
