Released in the summer of 1991, Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves was a monster success that grossed over $165 million at the US box office and more than $390 million globally – a number which made it one of the biggest hits of the year.
The success of the film, along with the massive Bryan Adams hit, (Everything I Do) I Do It for You means that it still resonates with audiences today.
The classic Kevin Reyndolds directed adventure gives Kevin Costner’s Robin Hood plenty of swash and buckle alongside Morgan Freeman‘s Merry Man, while a villainous Alan Rickman chews the scenery as the Sheriff of Nottingham.
Hot on the heels of a fantastic new release by the aptly named Arrow Films, Pen Densham and John Watson, the writers of Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves join the Movies In Focus podcast to talk about how the film came to be, its enduring legacy – and the sequel that never happened.
