Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991)

Recommended Posts

the ultimate forgotten box office hit? 

 

 

 

it made $165,493,908 and $390,493,908 worldwide on a budget of 48 million. That domestic gross adjusts to $340,029,100. It was the second highest grossing film of 1991 after Terminator 2. 

 

 

 

Guess it was a combination of Costner being on a high after Dances With Wolves and that Bryan Adams song.

 

 

It kind of left the consciousness of the public and it even shocks some people it made that much. Seems to have gotten a mild resurgence recently though after Alan Rickman passed away. 

 

 

 

Costner and the director Kevin Reynolds would later team up for Waterworld which of course didn't turn out as well as they probably hoped.

Kevin Costner was the definitely THE male star of the time. Had a great run between the late 80s and early 90s (Dances with Wolves, Robin Hood, and The Bodyguard were all megahits and a handful of other solid performers). Revenge (lol Madeleine Stowe would later go on to star on the hit ABC show of the same name) was the only one you could really call a flop.

Yep, Costner was at his peak and that song was everywhere. It had a really good trailer too. I remember getting really excited about it.

 

Too bad the movie itself was fairly crappy.

The song spent 16 weeks at number 1 in the UK, 16 weeks! Only Love is all Around covered by Wet Wet Wet from Four Weddings and a Funeral did 15 weeks at number 1 in the UK and the band took the decision to delete it from records as everyone was fed up of hearing it on the radio

If we talk only about recent time, Three men and a baby is an other good candidate for that, it was number one of the year domestic and a big sequel, when looking at that list:

That title is certainly not like the others in term of today recognition.

 

Adjusted box office of 360.73 million a bit higher than Robin Hood.

Yeah, the late 80s were a bit rough going until Batman arrived in '89 to kick things back into over-drive.

Yeah, pretty much forgotten despite it being a big hit. Not a very good movie;Alan Rickman as the Sheriff of Notthingham easily stole the film.

Needless to say, it did not come close to pushing the 1938 Errol Flynn film as the quintenssial  screen version of Robin Hood.

This came out when a movie could ride off it's star power, mostly.

Just asking, but wasn't Robin Hood character quite popular all over?

This must have been added advantage to its success rather than Star Power mostly?
