What Crappy Movies You Have

Oof.

Here's the trailer for Red Riding Hood, a retelling of the classic fairy tale with a fairly solid cast -- Amanda Seyfried, Virginia Madsen, Julie Christie and Gary Oldman stand out, and it also stars Shiloh Fernandez (Deadgirl), Lukas Haas, and Billy Burke (the Twilight films).

There are moments where I kind of liked it, perhaps because they swapped out the music of wanna-be Zero 7 band Fever Ray (which they used in the first trailer) for Nine Inch Nails. Or perhaps it's because Oldman looks like he's going to be a hell of a lot of fun.

Unfortunately, it also looks awfully Twilight-y, and that's likely because it's directed by Catherine Hardwicke, who directed (wait for it) Twilight.

This does not bode well.

Seyfried looks way too wide-eyed and breathless and pouty, and the romance angle is way too, well, again... Twilight-y. It isn't rated yet, but it's got PG-13 written all over it, and the tween crowd will love the shit out of it, I'm guessing. I'm also guessing that it's simply not going to be very good. Which is a shame.

Ah well.
