Apple has posted the trailer for the new film starring Amanda Seyfried, RED RIDING HOOD. The film also stars Gary Oldman and was directed by Catherine Hardwicke (TWILIGHT). RED RIDING HOOD centers around a medieval village that is haunted by a werewolf, and young girl that falls for an orphaned woodcutter, much to her family’s displeasure. The screenplay was penned by David Johnson and has a tentative release date of March 11, 2011.
As much as I am not impressed with the TWILIGHT SAGA as is, Hardwicke’s initial vision, though low budget, was nothing spectacular to look at and not directly that well, so my excitement in regards to RED RIDING HOOD was and still is at zero. I found this trailer to be extremely laughable and boring despite looking a whole lot better style wise to TWILIGHT. I must say though, that with a cast the includes a trio of people I really enjoy (Gary Oldman, Amanda Seyfried and Shiloh Fernandez), I will do my best to try and give it a shot, even if it might be saved for a rental. The end of this trailer asks “Who’s Afraid,” and all I can say is…not me.
