Crowe and arrow

38 Comments

Russell Crowe holds an ornamental arrow presented to him by Uno Kanda during an event to promote his movie "Robin Hood" at the Ritz-Carlton in Tokyo Midtown on Wednesday. The actor said he thought Kanda looked fantastic and called her headwear a "fascinator." Crowe, 46, who was last in Japan in 2002, said he spent seven hours just walking about the streets of Tokyo on Tuesday, ending up in Kiddy Land where he did some Christmas shopping. Crowe said he has been taking it easy for the past 12 months because of a growing number of war wounds accumulated during his "physical" movies, but added that he is looking forward to getting back into shape for his next film. "Robin Hood" opens in Japan on Dec 10.

"Crowe, 46, who was last in Japan in 2002, said he spent seven hours just walking about the streets of Tokyo on Tuesday, ..."

Sounds like most gaijin in Tokyo.

Egad... What the heck is Uno wearing. Do people actually look in the mirror before they leave the house or is it case of whatever is there, I will wear it.

I saw Robin Hood a couple of weeks ago on a flight.

It's good to see a visiting star dress properly at these events, especially after that fashion disaster by the Harry potter trio last week.

Not the first 'ornamental arrow' that Kanda has held.

Allow me to translate Mr. Crowe's eyes. "What the hell am I supposed to do with this? Who is the nutty bat standing next to me an why does she have a shoe on her head? Man, Japan just gets weirder and weirder."

Russel Crowe and Japan,what a mismatch...

I'l bet Russell is struggling to remember what the film is about. I bought my dad the DVD in September. A good film, but not worth waiting nine months for and then forking out 1800 yen to see it once.

I dunno - both Rusty and the Japanese seem to love getting on the drink quite a bit...

Good luck trying to get that arrow through airport security.

I can't believe this guy used to be a gladiator.

W/ a little more finesse on stage design, these promotional photos could up revenues 5-10%. Marketing needs a bit more awareness. This guy is/was Maximus.

The actor said he thought Kanda looked fantastic and called her headwear a “fascinator.”

"Fascinating as in wow it looks like it's been photoshopped in to cover your large forehead. If you really want to hide it I can lend you some of my mullet."

Hey, I was in KiddyLand on Tuesday ! I didn't see me no Gladiator. I coulda had me R. Crowe's autograph ! He's still cool even if only for that flic but he doesn't seem to have any more blockbusters up his sleeve.

btw I would love a beer with him and his 2 cents on his excursion... Hey Rus.. Mite... What did you think of ( )? I know what you mean Mite, about the teen girl infatuation.... And...( )? Really? Well the reason for that is.......... Yes indeed Mite, they have a few issues.

that's not Russell Crowe, he looks too agreeable! He seems happy with his circumstances.

There's a joke in their about giving her his ornamental arrow. But I'm far too much of gentleman to make it....

Those eyes look like he caught the red-eye from Hollywood, but he managed to get at least seven hours of walking done prior to the PR gig. His "stern" visage is morphing into an "exhausted" visage.

Best fascinatist?

my2sense, it's not 'mite' and if you think it is, you're one of those people who is just waaaay off when it comes to getting an Aussie accent down.

Seen the movie only the first 10 minutes. Then, decided it is just too boring. My sons did finished the movie though.

Yes, the dvd is out and it was on the entertainment system on my flight from US to Japan. Could Japan be the last country in the world to premiere this movie?

Apparently it takes them 9 months or more to translate from English - Japanese. I know there are only a handful of qualified translators in Japan - but seriously - 9 months?

excellent photo. but really, as per the comment by TokyoGas, what in the world is the young lady wearing? ...a fashion victim if i ever saw one. it is a great contrast between the street walking explorer and the pandora pompadour presenter...

I think she was going for a Robin Hood-style hat, but in black to match her outfit. Then someone stuck a silly ostrich feather on it.

BurakuminDes - I think the distribution companies are the ones deciding all the release dates based on other movie showings, popularity, holidays etc.

Robin Hood came and left in the US and it kinda sucked.

Uno Kanda's outfit reminds me of MegaMind's clothes.

I didn't think the movie was that bad. RC was good.

Seems like ages ago I saw it, though...

ROBIN HOOD IS ALREADY ON DVD FOR THE REST OF THE WORLD.

I believe Crowe will make an even better Robin Hood than Kevin Costner! Heh, actually I believe ANYONE would make a better Robin Hood than Kevin Costner.

whiskey - Yeah, but those DVDs don't have Japanese subtitles or dubbed voices, heh heh.

A leather dress with a flashy zipper? It IS interesting though. Beats lots of frumpiness some women wear. Agree with hat comments. Shouldn't Mr. Crowe be wearing that hat? If it was green, perhaps...anyway, welcome back to Tokyo, R.C. Looking good.

Burakumin - I think they need translations in Croatia, Indonesia, Korea and bleeding Estonia too, but they were all able to get the film out on time.
