New Movie Poster Released for Catherine Hardwicke's "Red Riding Hood"

The movie is opening March 11, 2011 and this poster is doing a great job of making me even more curious about it. Gorgeous image and great use of imagery too! Thorny trees? Not only teeth and claws but iron maidens come to mind. Yikes! And something about the tilt and movement of the shapes puts me in mind of a figure -ie. prey- caught via infrared vision...

A plot/premise summary, if you don't know the variations this particular movie is exploring, can be found HERE at the image source.

The previous movie poster is below:

  1. I have such mixed feelings about this movie. I'm not sure that you can stretch the story out to feature length without having to add so much that you have really altered the story.

  2. Not sure the film is my cup of tea, but the poster is certainly lovely.

    By the way, you've just received a blog award. ;-) You deserve it. http://specnology.blogspot.com/2011/01/i-win-blog-award.html

  3. I saw a preview for this movie the last time I was at the theaters and was very excited since I love period films/fairy tales.

    I've read the book that it is based on and I wasn't impressed, I'm hoping the movie is better.

  11. Hi, this blog is great! A wonderful resource and I am now a follower. I am a lover of all things folk and fairy tale and am currently creating comic book adaptations of my favourite fairy tales. I had a swedish Fairy Tale published last year. It was an adaptation of "The Boy who was Never Afraid". I have an adaptation of the Grimm Brothers "Snow White and Rose Red" coming out this year and am also working on an adaptation of "The Snow Queen". I also illustrated the book cover for the "Red Riding Hood" movie in this post. I actually loved the movie, although the ending was a little slapped together!

    Anyhow, great blog, (sorry for the long post!) I will be back here often.
