Universal has released news on the 1-disc DVD, 2-disc DVD, and 3-disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo releases of Robin Hood for September 21st. Each will feature the theatrical film, as well as a never before-seen unrated director’s cut of the movie. As far as we know, no extra material will be included on the 1-disc DVD. The 2-disc DVD will include deleted scenes with introduction and commentary by editor Pietro Scalia, a 3-part Rise and Rise Action: Making Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood documentary ("Ballad, Legend & Myth: Pre-Production", "The More the Merrier: Production", "No Quarter Given: Post Production"), and a digital copy of the unrated director’s cut. The Blu-ray release will include all that, plus a Director’s Notebook multimedia experience, a Art of Nottingham feature, BD-Live features, and more.
Personally, I enjoyed this film…and while not Ridley Scott’s best effort, still a fantastic re-imagining on a classic tale. Notable performances come from Russell Crowe and Mark Strong. B+
