Warner Bros has released a new trailer for Red Riding Hood, the pic directed by Twilight’s Catherine Hardwicke.

Gee, no one would even hire Catherine for quite some time in spite of her success with Twilight, and what subject matter does she do…the same thing…only it looks terrible from this trailer.
Knowing that the visual effects shots are probably not ready yet for the trailer leaves something to hope for except Jeff Okun is the visual effects supervisor…so that doesn’t look good either.
I expected to see a product of some sort….like jeans or cologne or perfume or something because this does not feel like a movie but some viral marketing ad.
Does anyone remember the similar werewolf movie Blood and Chocolate? yeah…me either.
Wow, this might prove to be breath-taking if I get his leading role. All I know is I’m young but ready to see what little, Red Riding Hood has in store for us in 2011.
I hope its all in all an awe-inspiring film or I might just walk out. She did capture many emotions in her last film but I hate to say it, though there needs to be the right fusion. I would like to see a fluid counter-balance of action, and lustful parts. -no, Thank You
Did I just spy Colonel Tigh?
Can’t wait for LITTLE PIGS THREE – Puff on this!
wow this looks horrible. i’ll pass
LOLOLOLOLOL…what more can i say?? Its like a live action photo shoot for Calvin Klein. You know, getting mad at the writer or director or producer who pitched this and the studio head who smiled and agreed and said “Great idea, i love it, greenlight” is the equivalent of getting mad at the fortunate soul who wins the $200 million dollar powerball. Some people just get lucky it seems while those who struggle continue to struggle and are told their ideas wont work or have no commercial appeal. It seems to me that in order to sell ANY idea in this town, all you have to do is go into the pitch and say, “young, sexy, white, a love story” and whoever is hearing the pitch will buy it.
No hard work or thought went into this movie, much like most movies nowadays. Just like no hard work goes into winning the powerball. Oh well. Im just going to start keeping my money and waiting till the movies come on cable
I think actually looks really good.
God, that looks atrocious. Hollywood is officially out of ideas and when they do remakes/retelling/imaginings, etc. they suck, like this will.
Looks like a poor attempt at a self-consciously artful teen romance. Flowing red cape against austere white snow. That’s deep. Presumably they’re going after the Twi-Hard crowd.
Not a fan of Seyfried or most of the material she ends up in. But at least Gary Oldman looks like himself again.
Yeah, in certain ways it looks like TWILIGHT but I wouldn’t say that she’s copying TWILIGHT. That’s probably just her directing style. Its like saying THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS looks too much like BEETLEJUICE. Anyway, the cinematography looks lovely, I must say.
another one hot off the toilet.
Wow that was pretty awful. I think this material needed someone with a stronger creative presence. This feels like a made for TV version of the excellent Brotherhood of the Wolf. Also, could they have been more obvious about Gary Oldman being the Wolf. Granted, I’m guessing here. Nevertheless, this is the same problem I had with the Wolfman Film. I knew Anthony Hopkins was the other Wolfman without having even seen the film. This trailer needed more mystery and tension.
HAHAHAHA!! You think Gary Oldman is the wolf?!?!? Yeah, cause the wolf hunter would totally be hunting himself. Get a clue and read the script.
But seriously, I think this is gonna be pretty good – while it does have that Twilight feel, I feel like Hardwicke is making a good departure from a vapid vampire romance. Plus Seyfried and Fernandez have the chops for this – not to mention they’re acting against Oldman? If you have that much talent coming together to make a movie, that has to be indicative of something a little more than just deep studio pockets.
it’s nice to see female sexuality have a seat at the dinner table….
I don’t understand who the audience is for this movie?
Tween girls who like Twilight?
I thought this movie was supposed to be more of a children’s movie?
This just looks bad. I know they want to get the Twilight audience but still this just looks bad. But it is nice to see Oldman cashing a paycheck.
Isn’t this a Twillight spoof? Actually, I thought it was until I saw Seyfried. Then I thought it might be better if it was a Twilight spoof.
Let me get this right, she has two potential love interests and one of them is a werewolf? Hmmm… sounds familiar.
Here’s Hollywood now, in a nutshell.
(1) Hey, it’s for boys? Let’s do massive budget blow-outs of bad product placement cartoons! So that we can sell massive amounts of merchandise and toys.
(2) Hey, it’s for girls? Let’s put medium-sized budgets on the worst kind of romance novels out there, because they will come. Not just to the theatres, but also in their virgin panties.
And this is in the second category.
And this is not Little Red Riding Hood, this is a twilighted bullshit variant of Beauty & the Beast.
One girl. Forced to choose… between a good man… and a beast. But what if they both are the same? Will their love destroy her? Or will it save him?
Look for the subtle use of trees as a metaphor for pubic hair as they roam through them. Look for the long, re cape that looks in the pure white snow a lot like a bloody metaphor for deflowering. Dun. Dun. Dun.
Lamo, that was awesome. And so true. Hardwick has a subtlety of a sledgehammer but come to think of it, she probably wanted to drive the point thinking we are too stupid to get it.
I saw Gary Oldman and was briefly intrigued, thinking the trailer would get better at any moment — it did not.
after reading all the above vile comments, i decided to take another look at the trailer.
i think it’s got a lot of flash and style. and i’m glad to see a woman not making yet another damn romcom. since there’s dialogue in the trailer, i bet the acting is better than in any of the twilight movies.
uhhm…was that a Victoria’s Secret ad?
Hardwicke has buckets o’ credence in my book.
“13″ is a masterpiece — one of the best films ever directed by a woman (2nd only to Bigelow’s “Hurt Locker”).
“Twilight” as a franchise is hard to swallow, but time will show Hardwicke’s entry as the most poignant (kinda like the way Ridley Scott’s “Alien” oozes elegance in a way that we couldn’t appreciate as kids, when we gave Cameron’s “Aliens” the edge). She set up a convincing and enthralling love story (not an easy fete!) that to this day serves as the only fuel left in the franchise’s tank. Plus, she’s got a knack for casting and an eye for luscious cinematography.
Furthermore, this trailer looks, at the very least, like an interesting take on the material. Trying to convince myself that I won’t be seeing this is kinda like trying to convince myself that I won’t be seeing Snyder’s “Superman”. I was born to judge these films and these filmmakers.
And her taste in music is UNMATCHED!!!!!!
I couldn’t agree more. Why are people so cruel on these blogs.
I can’t imagine any of them have ever worked on a film as they wouldn’t be so quick to criticize, they would
know all of the hard work and passion everybody involved went through to get the film made, wouldn’t they???
YAY! I just saved myself $12!!!
Does no one want to mention that this was produced by Leo?
I’m slightly disappointed
(try to fill in the blank): No one cares because ______________.
Uh, wow this looks exactly like… Twilight! Does Catherine Hardwicke have anything to offer other than the tween perfume ad movies? Apparently not.
Yeah, this looks like a behind the scenes shoot for a Burberry ad, but I actually think this looks ten times better than her shitty outing on Twilight, which looked more like a fanfilm than anything else. I would actually watch this…on Showtime.
