The Playlist just posted the latest trailer for RED RIDING HOOD, and they are dead on in comparing it to a "TWILIGHT set in olden times." Using much of the same imagery and rock style music that made the first of the TWILIGHT movies so successful, it looks like RED RIDING HOOD will also be using the supernatural as a backdrop for romance.

Watch the full trailer after the break.

RED RIDING HOOD is directed by Catherine Hardwicke (THIRTEEN, TWILIGHT) and stars Amanda Seyfried as Red Riding Hood, along with Shiloh Fernandez, Julie Christie, Gary Oldman, Max Irons, Lukas Haas, and Virginia Madsen. With such a strong cast, we can only hope that this trailer doesn't do the film justice.

Here's the official plot synopsis from Warner Bros.:

"Valerie (Seyfried) is a beautiful young woman torn between two men. She is in love with a brooding outsider, Peter (Fernandez), but her parents have arranged for her to marry the wealthy Henry (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 (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 will be out in theaters on March 11.
