The trailer for Twilight director Catherine Hardwick’s next project has hit the net, and after watching it, we can’t help but feel we’ve seen this type of movie before…
Catherine Hardwicke has forever earned a spot in the hearts of teens that have ever dreamt of loving a hunky supernatural since she directed the very first Twilight movie – and based on the trailer for her new movie Red Riding Hood, she might be up to her old immortal love tricks…
Amanda Seyfried plays the most famous hood-wearing girl in history (real name Valerie), and the trailer is full of steamy moments between her and hottie Shiloh Fernandez. Shiloh’s character Peter may or may not be the werewolf that everyone in the movie is living in fear of, but we kind of think he is (which makes Valerie’s love for dangerous and, of course, forbidden).
The trailer is gorgeous, but there are some moments between Amanda and Shiloh that hit a little too close to a Twi-hards’ home. Right off the bat, Valerie tells her boy that she’d “do anything” to be with him. And then there’s Peter telling Valerie: “I’m wrong for you” and her response: “I don’t care.”
Of course, if our werewolf boyfriend looked like that, we wouldn’t care either.
Other similarities? The song the trailer is set to is very reminiscent of the Twilight Saga’s soundtrack; plus, there also seems to be a love triangle. Of course, this is all just based on 90 second trailer. We’ll save our final judgment for the actual movie, which releases next year. Then again, it wouldn’t be the worst thing to have another Bella and Edward to obsess over.
