Russell Crowe's Robin Hood movie billboard...

Russell Crowe Robin Hood billboard
Is Hollywoodland so starved of ideas that it needs to constantly remake the same movies over and over again? Clash of the Titans, A Nightmare on Elm Street and Fame to name just a few.

Did we really need another Robin Hood movie considering the success of Kevin Costner's 1991 hit Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, or is that their strategy these days to go with bankable concepts based on historic classic tales?

Regardless of studio politics or output, Russell Crowe does look the part in this billboard as the infamous archer of Sherwood Forest. He does seem to suit historical roles better than modern day characters. Maybe it's just the beard though.

This extra large billboard was photographed at Sunset & Vine in Hollywood on April 24, 2010.

UPDATED: Here's another giant-sized billboard for the movie snapped on the side of the CNN building along Sunset Boulevard on May 5, 2010.
