The first trailer for Catherine Hardwicke’s Red Riding Hood has been released.
Set in a village that’s under attack from a werewolf, this looks a bit Twilight: 1750AD - not surprising considering the supernatural elements, themes of forbidden love and Hardwicke's slick direction.
Starring Amanda Seyfried as the girl with the red hood, with what promises to be a great support from Gary Oldman as a famous werewolf hunter.

At worst, Red Riding Hood will give Twi-hards something to watch while awaiting Breaking Dawn .
At best, it'll show what Hardwicke could have achieved if she'd have been allowed to continue the Twilight Saga.
We doubt that this is franchise making stuff, but with Gary Oldman and Billy Burke in one movie, it's got our money.
Red Riding Hood is due for release in early 2011.
