Red Riding Hood in March 2011

That's the first poster.
Here's the first trailer...

From First Trailer and Poster for 'Red Riding Hood' Are Dark:

Amanda Seyfried takes the lead role of Valerie who is torn between two men. She is in love with a brooding outsider, Peter (Shiloh Fernandez), but her parents have arranged for her to marry the wealthy Henry (Max Irons). Valerie and Peter are planning to run away when they learn that Valerie's older sister has been killed by the werewolf that prowls the dark forest surrounding their village.

As the wolf, which is offered a monthly animal sacrifice by villagers, has upped the stakes by taking a human life under a blood red moon, the people call on famed werewolf hunter, Father Solomon (Gary Oldman), to help them kill the wolf. But Solomon's arrival brings unintended consequences as he warns that the wolf, who takes human form by day, could be any one of them. As the death toll rises with each moon, Valerie begins to suspect that the werewolf could be someone she loves.

"What fans can expect from this version of the story is that it's basically just a jumping-off point," Seyfried said about the film in an interview with "The Seven" which also premiered the trailer on November 16. "Catherine Hardwicke has just completely turned this story into something edgy and Gothic and dark, and she's clearly somebody that's very capable of turning something, everything into an extraordinary world, as we've seen before."

What do you think?


  1. Sadly, I think it looks bad. I mean visually it's very pretty, but I'm disappointed with the rest. I will still give it a chance though; I want to like it.

  2. It has Gary Oldman. I will see it for that alone! I'm also quite intrigued by a revised 'gothic' take on this old favorite tale of mine.

    Though I will agree it does look like it has the potential to be awful too. I am one of those people who is not thrilled by the name 'Twilight' being attached to anything.

    But yes, I'll give anything a chance. Even Twilight. Even if it takes a bit of rum before the showing.

  3. It looks as stilted as Twilight.
