THE SIEGE OF ROBIN HOOD Trailer: Paul Allica’s Long-Awaited Indie Action Adventure Pillages In U.S. Theaters And On Digital This June
Close to six years after kickstarting the independently-produced action adventure, The Siege Of Robin Hood, it’s high time fans and folks got a chance to see what exists from Aussie actor and filmmaker Paul Allica (Danger Close, Iron Mask, The Rookies, The Trigonal: Fight For Justice). Alas, the official U.S. trailer is now live courtesy Saban Films following exclusive coverage over at Flickering Myth on Wednesday.
When the Sheriff of Nottingham’s soldiers brutally attack his family, a young man named Robin vows bloody revenge on the men responsible. He recruits a team of outcasts, mavericks, and fugitive warriors, each has a grudge to settle with the Sheriff and an extreme fighting skill to match. Together they devise a plan to exact revenge and lay to rest the ghosts of his past.
I mean it when I iterate whenever I talk about this film that Allica had to tread some truly rough and grueling terrain to make this film a reality – anywhere from on-the-spot problem solving, to film business politics of multiple aspects between principal photography and post-production… you can name it and Allica’s probably got a story to tell to back it up (even the film’s ‘R’ rating was a bit of an issue at first).
And all this for close to an hour and a half of escapist indie fanfare based on a folkloric hero, peppered with stylish (and quite bloody) action courtesy of stunt coordinator Reg Roordink
Also starring are Peter Roordink, Keanu Gonzalez, Dave Beamish, Kahli Williams, David Macrae, Tom McCathie, Wallis Murphy-Munn, John Fallon, Steve Young and Sophie Hardy. The film is set for select theatrical release on June 3 followed by digital beginning June 7.
