Robin Hood Hits Next May

Universal Pictures has set Ridley Scott’s “Robin Hood” for release on May 14th 2010.

The scheduling fills out all of next May’s weeks with a major release. “Iron Man 2” opens the week before on May 7th, “Shrek Goes Fourth” and “Prince of Persia” hit on the 21st and 28th respectively.

Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett star in the roles of Robin and Maid Marian. Ridley Scott has had two previous historical-themed blockbusters open in early May – “Gladiator” which ended up with an excellent $187 million, and “Kingdom of Heaven” which disappointed with just $47 million.
