Otto Bathurst’s Robin Hood aims to out-Ritchie Guy Ritchie in this weirdly familiar take on Robin Hood – weird because it emulates Ritchie’s directing style; is influenced more than a little by Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins; Irish leading lady Eve Hewson sounds very American, and, like Gore Verbinski’s The Lone Ranger, it’s a bit of a mess but still a fun ride.

Plus, machine gun crossbows; ninja-like moves and slow-mo archery.

Netflix has posted a behind-the-scenes featurette that introduces us to Bloodline’s central characters, The Rayburn Family. Right now it looks like Bloodline is likely to be a slow burn, high emotion saga of a family struggle in the Florida Keys. Coming from the creators of Damages, and with a cast that includes Kyle Chandler, Sam Shepard, Sissy Spacek, Ben Mendelsohn, Norman Leo Butz and Linda Cardellini, that could make some potent viewing.

Check out The Rayburns after the jump. Bloodline premieres on March 20th.

Wow! I’ve just seen the trailer for Ryan Gosling’s debut as a filmmaker – he writes and directs – and it is something else entirely: eerie, otherworldly, downright strange. In a good way. Nicolas Winding Refn strange – as opposed to Uwe Boll strange.

Lost River will be in theaters and on VOD on April 10th. Check out the trailer after the jump.
