Robin Hood (May 14)
The latest adaptation of the Robin Hood story, this one stars Russell Crowe, whose Australian accent should make us all forget about Kevin Costner's accent in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves from 1991. This one is directed by Ridley Scott, who directed Crowe in the Oscar-winning Gladiator, so we should expect lots of arrow-related violence.
Why geeks want to see it: Who wouldn't want to grab a bow an arrow, save the lovely Maid Marian against the corrupt Sherriff of Nottingham and bring hope to ancient England? The fans who loved Lord of the Rings will flock to this film as well.
