The first images of the blockbuster movie Robin Hood: Origins starring Taron Egerton, Jamie Foxx and Jamie Dornan have been released and have brought much reaction.
Dubrovnik acted as Nottingham and Sherwood Forest in the upcoming flick features heavily in the images released by the studio Lionsgate. Robin Hood (Taron Egerton) and Little John (Jamie Foxx) on the set on the Stradun, the Sheriff of Nottingham (Ben Mendelsohn) standing in front of his army again in the centre of Dubrovnik and Robin in street fight scene which again resembles Dubrovnik have all been used by Lionsgate to promote the film. Eve Hewson (daughter of U2's Bono), who plays Maid Marian, is also featured in the photo releases.

Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan is also in the cast, playing Robin's brother Will Scarlet, and Australian comedian Ben Minchin plays the jovial Friar Tuck. In fact, Jamie Dornan’s brief appearance on the set in Dubrovnik was by far the most heavily guarded. The Irish heartthrob only really filmed for two days in Dubrovnik, with one scene showing him leading a rebel army along the main street.

The release date for Robin Hood: Origins has been set for Friday the 21st of September this year and the studio is hoping for great results. However, the film world is still sceptical, with many predicting a flop in the making.
