New trailer for Red Riding Hood
Amanda Seyfried is Red Riding Hood, and she’s got a werewolf and Gary Oldman to contend with. Here’s the new trailer…
"What big eyes you have."
Here's hoping this one matches its potential. Giving a leading role to the terrific Amanda Seyfried, Red Riding Hood is directed by Catherine Hardwicke, who's most famed thus far for helming the first Twilight movie.
But this looks like a different beast, and is likely to be all the better for it. It's loosely based on the Little Red Riding Hood story, and this take on the tale involves a werewolf, lots of snow, and Gary Oldman.
We're not convinced that this new trailer does the film too many favours. The backing music seems to jar with the tone of what we've seen of the film, and seems to be playing harder for a Twilight-audience. But we've not convinced that the film is going to pan out quite that way.
We've got real hopes for this one, anyway. And we've not got long to wait for it. Red Riding Hood is due on 11th March 2011.
