Amanda Seyfried flees sharp trees in the new poster for Red Riding Hood

Jan. 13, 2011by: Dave Davis

TWILIGHT director Catherine Hardwicke may have left vampires behind, but she's still got a bit of werewolf left in her system. But she's going from Hot Topic to true Gothic for a sexy update of the Grimm fairy tale RED RIDING HOOD, with Amanda Seyfried in the crimson cloak.

Here's the latest pointy and snowy image from the film (which is still reminding me of THE COMPANY OF WOLVES for some reason). The trailer and synopsis can also be found below.

Synopsis: Valerie (Seyfried) is a beautiful young woman 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). Unwilling to lose each other, Valerie and Peter are planning to run away together when they learn that Valerie's older sister has been killed by the werewolf that prowls the dark forest surrounding their village. For years, the people have maintained an uneasy truce with the beast, offering the creature a monthly animal sacrifice. But under a blood red moon, the wolf has upped the stakes by taking a human life. Hungry for revenge, 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. As panic grips the town, Valerie discovers that she has a unique connection to the beast--one that inexorably draws them together, making her both suspect... and bait.

Ahhh Little Red Twiding Hood.
It looks terrible. I know Hardwicke isn't to blame for the content of Twilight, but if her pacing is as bad on this as it is that, you'll only need to see the last twenty minutes.

Really, I don't know what other than "The Company of Wolves" to compare this to. Though it may be a little less trippy.

LAME

This trailer was playing before Harry Potter 7A, and after enduring all nauseating 2 minutes of it, I yelled out, "LAME!" at the end of the trailer. The entire theater dissolved into laughter. 'nuff said.

I have no interest in seeing this in theaters, but will probably check it out on dvd. Looks like a mix between Twilight and The Wolfman.

Meh

SPOILER (guess): The werewolf is actually Red's granny...with big eyes (to see you with), big ears (to hear you with) and big teeth (to eat you with!)
