Warner Bros. has released a second trailer for their update on Red Riding Hood which stars Amanda Seyfried as the title character. Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight) is directing, and the new trailer shows off a bunch of new footage including a lot more of Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight). The actor, who just seems to blend into each role, plays a werewolf hunter who is called upon after the beast takes a human life.
Watch the trailer below:
Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
Red Riding Hood will be released March 2011 and also stars Billy Burke, Shiloh Fernandez, Max Irons, Virginia Madsen, and Julie Christie.
