Handsome, dashing, popular ... movie legend Errol Flynn had the world in the palm of his hand during his heydey, but when the '40s rolled around, her personal life overcame his onscreen persona. A trial for statutory rape—from which he was acquitted after a very public trial—forever damaged his reputation. And the upcoming "The Last Of Robin Hood" documents the fall of one of Hollywood's greatest icons.

Kevin Kline plays the handsome actor, who starts a relationship with the very young Beverly Aadland (Dakota Fanning) under the premise of helping her acting career, and the two are soon embroiled in an affair. Some of this is enabled by Beverly's stage mom Florence (Susan Sarandon), but when the relationship spills out into the media, there's not much anyone can do stop what's coming. The film premiered at TIFF last fall, and we missed it at the time, and the trailer seems to be playing up the glamor of the era and less the drama of the story. We'll see which wins out.

"The Last Of Robin Hood" opens on August 29th. Watch below.

    Kevin Kline is very talented but he is not nearly as handsome and dashing as Errol Flynn! This isn't the least bit believable to me. If Flynn is going to be brought to life I wish it could be a truly excellent project.

    Kline may have the lookalike factor but Kline doesn't have the excitement of Errol Flynn. Errol Flynn at his prime was the true superstar of any generation. Dashing, Handsome, vivid, vital and full of life. Indeed one of a kind. This movie is about his waning hours. Kline may have the craftsmanship as a trained actor. But to deliver this role effectively--making Flynn come to life--requires true talent.

    This doesn't look to be very good. Appears that Kline picked the wrong movie to play Errol Flynn. Flynn was exciting. This feels boring.

    Saw this at Filmfest DC and found it be very shallow. Even Kline, who I think is generally great in everything, didn't seem as committed to the role as he usual.

    Too bad. The likeness in this still is astonishing, but I'm still waiting for a role deserving of Kline's extraordinary talent.
