Catherine Hardwicke’s re-imagining of the Red Riding Hood fairytale, Warner Bros.’ “Red Riding Hood” doesn’t open until next month, but those living in the Houston, Texas area will be able to catch an advance screening of the film for free on March 9, 2011, a full two days before the film opens to the public. Space is limited, and only the first 60 people will get in. Head on below for details.
In “Red Riding Hood,” Seyfried plays Valerie, a beautiful young woman torn between two men. She is in love with a brooding outsider, Peter (Shiloh Fernandez), but her parents have arranged for her to marry the wealthy Henry (Max 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 (Gary 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” stars Amanda Seyfried, Gary Oldman, Lukas Haas, Virginia Madsen, Billy Burke, Michael Shanks, Julie Christie, Michael Hogan, Shiloh Fernandez and is directed by Catherine Hardwicke.
