Trailer and One-Sheet Debut - Red Riding Hood
After what seems like forever, we finally have a trailer and one-sheet for Catherine Hardwicke's (Twilight) take on Red Riding Hood for Warner Brothers. Dig it with those big eyes you have!
Red Riding Hood, written by David Johnson (Orphan) and starring Amanda Seyfried, Shiloh Fernandez, Max Irons, Michael Hogan, Julie Christie, Lukas Hass, and Gary Oldman, is a retelling of the old Red Riding Hood bedtime story that we can only hope comes sans any sparkling entities and/or underwearwolves. Oh, who are we kidding? We know that they will be there. Either way, we'll be watching and hoping for the best.
The original fairy tales by The Brothers Grimm were deliciously dark so keep your fingers crossed that at least some of that content makes it in.
Look for the film in theatres on March 11th, 2011. For more dig on the official Red Riding Hood website here.

In "Red Riding Hood," Seyfried plays Valerie, 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.
