Warner Brothers has released the full theatrical trailer for Catherine Hardwicke‘s brand new interpretation of the classic fairy tale, Red Riding Hood, starring Amanda Seyfried and Gary Oldman. It basically takes the key visual from the previous trailer and adds in an extra minute of montage cut to hard rock. If you’ve been counting down the days until March 11, you’re about to have your mind blown.
You can view the trailer in full HD over at Apple.
Is your mind efficiently blown? Mine was, but not in particularly a good way. The simple fact is I’m unsure what to think about this movie. I think Hardwicke has made a gorgeous film but I can’t tell if it’s going to be overly cheesy or too serious for its own good. Here’s the official plot description:
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.
