We have to wait a little longer until Robin Hood hits theatres. The movie about the famous archer has been pushed back 6 months. Where the original release date was March 23, 2018, it is now September 21st, 2018.

The previous release date would have caused quite a challenge for the film. Earlier this month, the sci-fi/action sequel Pacific Rim: Uprising moved to that date, adding big competition for Robin Hood. Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Ready Player One will also arrive the following week. Therefore it makes sense for Robin Hood to move to the relative quiet of September. Generally, the space between the summer season and the holidays isn’t filled with big-budget films, meaning Robin Hood has a better shot at scoring on the new date.

Although the release is now a year away, filming concluded on May 19, and was shot at different locations in Dubrovnik, Croatia and Budapest, Hungary.

Back in February, set photos were revealed that could possibly hint at some plot points to come. Since then, however, there’s been virtually no news or further set pics from the project. The only things we know is that the story will centre on Robin Hood being a war-hardened crusader and joining with a Moorish commander in an audacious revolt against the corrupt English crown. Check out my previous post for more info on this Robin Hood movie.

All we can do now is waiting until the first trailer is going to be released!
