New Red Riding Hood Trailer Takes The Darker Path
The movie world is falling head-over-heels in love with Trent Reznor. This past Sunday at the Golden Globes, Reznor and his partner, Atticus Ross, took home the award Best Score for their work on The Social Network and earlier this month it was revealed that David Fincher is having the pair create the music for his adaptation of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Now Nine Inch Nails music is being used to promote Red Riding Hood in the film's newest trailer. Coincidence?
Apple has premiered the second look at the Catherine Hardwicke-directed film. Starring Amanda Seyfried, Gary Oldman, Billy Burke, Shiloh Fernandez , and Max Irons, the film centers on a young woman trapped between the man she loves and the man her parents want her to marry. As she is about to flee with her lover, a werewolf kills her sister and the town goes into panic mode as an esteemed werewolf hunter explains that the beast is someone in their village.
Check out the trailer below or in HD over at Apple.
While I might be alone here, I think this is a significant improvement over what we saw the first time around. Sure, the "What big eyes you have" and "Grandmother's house" lines are really phony, but at least this time they are playing up the scarier tones and making it look a little bit less like a Twilight ripoff. Yes, the two brooding hunks fighting for the young girl's affection is still there, but at least most of it is drowned out by Gary Oldman ranting about werewolves and Reznor singing about biting the hand that feeds you. All I'm saying is that it could be worse.
