Red Riding Hood: Trailer Sneak Peek

From director Catherine Hardwicke comes the romantic fantasy horror thriller “Red Riding Hood”. The film features an ensemble cast led by Amanda Seyfried and supported by Gary Oldman, Billy Burke, Shiloh Fernandez, Max Irons, Oscar® nominee Virginia Madsen and Oscar® winner Julie Christie. Read on to find out more about the film and catch the teaser trailer to boot.

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.

Warner Bros. Pictures presents, an Appian Way production, a Catherine Hardwicke film, “Red Riding Hood.” The film will be released beginning March 11, 2011, from Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.


  1. I just saw the trailer and it gave me that Twilight effect (of course, because they makers produced it). But this is definitely a new twist for the Red Riding Hood story we were all too familiar with.
