“Robin Hood” best opening choice for Cannes in a long time

By Roger Friedman
HollywoodNews.com: “Robin Hood” is barreling toward us quickly, with a big price tag. Ridley Scott’s epic, starring Russell Crowe, opens the 2010 Cannes Film Festival next Wednesday. Some insiders are telling me that it will take $700 million to break even.
Earlier this week, “Robin Hood” was screened in the U.S. so some of us going to Cannes wouldn’t have to experience it with jet lag. This isn’t a review, per se, since they won’t come until Sunday. But this much I can tell you: “Robin Hood” is the best opening choice for Cannes in a long time. It’s great filmmaking: exciting, involving, and incredibly human. It’s full of incredible action, too.
What might surprise everyone is that “Robin Hood” may find an audience in an unlikely place: the Tea Party. That’s because Robin’s problem with the rule of King John is taxes! The Sherwood Forest gang doesn’t want to pay them. The whole movie tells the tale of England’s fight against France. But in the end, Robin is declared an outlaw because he’s against taxes. King John keeps levying them. Robin is declared an outlaw. And thus will begin “Robin Hood 2,” the story we all know so well.
