Warner Bros. has unveiled the second trailer for Red Riding Hood, Twilight director Catherine Hardwick’s gothic-horror retelling of the classic fairy tale.
While the first trailer, released back in November, left viewers wondering when Jacob and Edward would make an appearance, this one dials down the romance while ratcheting up the horror and action — and Gary Oldman’s screen time. That’s not to say it looks good, mind you; certainly better, though. But, wow, who’s responsible for that terrible music?
Here’s the official synopsis:
In Red Riding Hood, Amanda 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, which also stars Julie Christie, Lukas Haas, Michael Hogan and Virginia Madsen, opens on March 11. Watch the trailer in high resolution at Apple.com.
