Watch: Amanda Seyfried's Wild 'Red Riding Hood' Official Trailer
Who's afraid? Warner Bros has debuted the official trailer on Apple for Catherine Hardwicke's new take on Red Riding Hood starring Amanda Seyfried as the dainty young victim, apparently also stuck in a love triangle. This trailer, and one for Green Lantern, are playing in front of the new Harry Potter. The period thriller also includes Gary Oldman, Shiloh Fernandez, Virginia Madsen, Lukas Haas, Julie Christie and Billy Burke. This looks pretty frickin' wild, almost like Julie Taymor made a horror movie, but it doesn't look bad. In fact, thanks to Oldman, Haas, and of course Seyfried, I'm looking forward to seeing it. Take a look below!

You can also watch the Red Riding Hood trailer in High Definition on Apple
In the dark retelling of the famous children's tale, Seyfried stars as Valerie, a village girl torn between two loves. The threat of demons and werewolves further complicates the love triangle, along with a priest (Gary Oldman) obsessed with ridding his village of evil, and any townspeople hiding their own secrets and lies. Red Riding Hood was directed by Catherine Hardwicke (of Thirteen, Lords of Dogtown, The Nativity Story, Twilight) from a screenplay by David Johnson (of only Orphan). It also stars Shiloh Fernandez, Lukas Haas and Virginia Madsen. Warner Bros is bringing Red Riding Hood to theaters starting on March 11th, 2011.

what the fuck was that.... that in no way shape or form was the story of little red riding hood, another twilight teen atrocity. I'll pass thanks

Looks like Twilight but without the Mormon
budbud on Nov 16, 2010
I appreciate the Oldman, but this looks way to much like a Twilight ripoff in tone.
Geoff on Nov 16, 2010
"Who's afraid?" Come on... Thought it might be good but from the looks of it, no. I'll pass too. Maybe rentable, if bored.
Nat on Nov 16, 2010
Leonardo Caps is a producer on this? Looks pretty good to look at, will watch at some point for sure.
Crapola on Nov 16, 2010
Looks like The Village and Twilight had babies... I don't want to go to there.
VisoTrailers on Nov 16, 2010
Christ.. It's amazing how hard they're appealing to the Twilight crowd with this trailer.
SkaOreo on Nov 16, 2010
I didn't realize Little Red Riding Hood was such a whore. I hate growing up.
Knawx on Nov 16, 2010
Twilight with a slightly better actress
sedna on Nov 16, 2010
@ Geoff: my sentiments exactly. everything about it (outside of the talent) felt like twilight. the tone was too.. i don't know... hushy, whsipery.. something. crappy.

If you shoot a werewolf with a silver bullet in this movie... does it glitter? 0_o
LW on Nov 16, 2010
wow. this looked exactly like twilight. well that movie is gonna suck. only reason i would see it is oldman and even he might not be able to save this
max s. on Nov 16, 2010
Dudes with guido hair in the wild? This looks like wolfshit.
Chrisbo on Nov 16, 2010
She is going to end up being the wolf. To show the beast inside. There, $10 saved. It looks sorta interesting, it has a cool look to it
movie mike on Nov 16, 2010
Only 2 things could get me to watch that movie... an R-rating and Amanda Seyfried naked.
Kevin on Nov 16, 2010
i like the cinematography and the sets with costumes. who knew that the riding part in red riding hood actually stood for something practical. Amanda's cute so i might give it a chance if those 2 dudes dont do the abs flashing fight scenes that should be only kept on perez hilton's blog.
na on Nov 16, 2010
definitely looks like twishite
fem!anon on Nov 16, 2010
Aaaand yet another rotation of supermodels to fight the forces of darkness...
Joe on Nov 16, 2010
I'm inclined to agree with #2. This looks like another steaming pile from the Twilight ilk.
Tenacious V on Nov 16, 2010
Terrible director, this potentially could be cool with someone else but this looks like pure cheese.
Hmm on Nov 16, 2010
"From the director of Twilight", they make it sound like a compliment...
Nathaniel on Nov 16, 2010
what is this crap
florian on Nov 16, 2010
You can see Amanda Seyfried's TITS and ASS fucking the shit outta Juliane Moore in Chloe. Her tits are oh so natural, shaped like a pear. Not profusely round but natural. In other words, there better be wolf fucking like bat fucking in Bram Stokers Dracula.
Mike Balrog on Nov 16, 2010
what a joke.
filmfan111 on Nov 16, 2010
i stopped after it said it was directed by the twilight douche
8=D on Nov 16, 2010
Okay, they took a perfectly good concept and Twilighted it. I know thats sort of repeating whatever has already been said, but goddamn it, this is a period piece and they are putting in a guy with fucking moussed hair. Tha fuck. Do it right
Price Garrison on Nov 16, 2010
This lost me when it said "From the Director of 'Twilight'". She sucks.
Film Fan on Nov 16, 2010
"what the fuck was that…. that in no way shape or form was the story of little red riding hood, another twilight teen atrocity. I'll pass thanks" My thoughts.... Exactly.
Mark on Nov 16, 2010
I think it's funny to read all of these comments because I know that everyone that says they'll pass will end up watching it. Who y'all trying to fool? If this film gets 85% or higher on the tomato-meter, half of y'all will be there opening night.
Markers on Nov 16, 2010
a Gary Oldman movie i might not watch?! SAY IT AINT SO!
DoomCanoe on Nov 16, 2010
twilight for adults
memz on Nov 16, 2010
Was really loking forward to this, but now I'm disapointed...
AJ on Nov 17, 2010
Big crappinghood! -_-°
pipo on Nov 17, 2010
Im just curious. Why are they calling this crap Red Riding hood ? Is it because Amanda Seyfried is wearing a red cape for like 10 minutes in the movie ?
Shige on Nov 17, 2010
#7 Looks like The Village and Twilight had babies… I don't want to go to there.hehe..you are my hero!!!best comment EVER!!!!hehehee....

ALmazing! on Nov 17, 2010
If this is rated r it might be ok, otherwise its just crap for the twilight fans...it could have been cool....
abcdefg on Nov 17, 2010
Yawn :0, every time I see this girl I always picture here as being very ditzy like in Mean girls hahaha 😛
DaftPUNKFAN on Nov 17, 2010
Check out Neil Jordon and Angela Carter's (novelists) "The Company of Wolves" (1984) for a great re-telling of Little Red Riding Hood and forget this crap.
goudos on Nov 17, 2010
This honestly bored me, despie having Gary Oldman. Read more of my thoughts on my blog
SpeakingGeek on Nov 17, 2010
I bet "The Wolf" doesn't own a shirt.
That Awesome Norwegian Dude on Nov 17, 2010
this looks dreadful. it definitely looks like one for the twilight crowd.
beavis on Nov 17, 2010
So Hood doesn't go see her grandmother????
Jared on Nov 17, 2010
Heh. Agree with #1. Song sounds a LOT like Fever Ray to me. Bet it's them.
Noemi on Nov 17, 2010
did M. Knight Shamalan Produce this?? its like "the Village" "twlight" and something really gay put together...all around bad.... and not the cool redisign your house gay, but the "jersey shore" type gay...
Viewers Choice on Nov 17, 2010
You know with Amanda , you don't even need to add just the "watch" is enough you know...that's a HOTTTTTTTTTTTTie right there. She should be in any movie loll! YESSS " .You're gonna get what you deserve! " What a saucy message that is. 🙂 I think she should be CATWOMAN anyone agrees? I love the movie because some hotties (no homo of course) are cast next to my hottie, so that's cool! I'm in whatever. I'm open you know loll! No carey mulligan sh*t, no, no.no. By the way, Gary Oldman is quite young in this...loll No pun intended. He looks good!
I am... on Nov 18, 2010
of course the "red" is a symbol in there. All the comedians who talk about the decor and whatever. all those are symbols and in order to find out what they mean, learn more about the Middle age and you will understand. Anyway,Amanda is in it Rejoice :)...of course all the haters and the gays men are not included in this comment. Gotta go comment on that lame Green Lantern flick!!!
I am... on Nov 18, 2010
Lol, I dont know why, but I suddenly have an urge to say: Who is riding you. Gives a new meaning to the term Red 'Riding' Hood. Hmm, why do they call her the red "riding" hood anyway? Does she ride a horse in the original story?
Lair on Nov 18, 2010
I LIKED IT.... @ 33 Haha couldn’t agree more. People are really mad they didn’t stick to the original ... have a talking wolf lying in bed wearing grandma clothes....really amazing if i was 4. God forbid they have young good looking people and a twist to the story about how it came to be. I like how Hood is kinda slutty too. I think so any people are trying to spew there dislike for twilight threw this. The Twilight movies were cheesy but a good rental.....Why so angry people? I hope the wolf glitters sooo bad!! Just so I can read everyone’s outrage. I will be the minority in this and say I found it appealing. The funny funny thing is this will make money and the mass bitching will soon become the minority. Rage on commenters 🙂
McWilly on Nov 18, 2010
Hey another Twilight! 🙁
John on Nov 18, 2010
Well aside from the american accents this looks like it might be worth a look.
DiR3cT on Nov 18, 2010
This failed to impress.

YK on Nov 20, 2010
for the first 45 seconds of this trailer I totally thought it was a spoof off of twilight. I was actually considering going to see it when it came out because, it looks hystercial! but then my dreams had to be destroyed... "From the director of Twilight" oh no.... well I suppose this tells us one thing: Catherine Hardwicke knows how to make only one type of movie. softcore porn for women.... wonderfull....
