Though our editor's review of Ridley Scott's latest epic, Robin Hood, may have been a little soggy ("Like Gladiator in the rain") Russel Crowe's turn in tights combined all the requisite hit blockbuster ingredients - think beautiful women (in the form of Cate Blanchett), sword-swinging action and plenty of gore.
"Robin Hood: Director’s Cut Edition" goes on general release September 20. As a teaser we've got our hands on some exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, taken from the DVD extras, which explains the laborious process behind the creation of weapon props in detail. We're also giving away three Blu-Ray copies so you can get a slice of the action before anyone else. To be in with a chance of winning simply drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, quoting "Robin Hood" in the subject line.
