Is This Movie Too Much Like 'Twilight'?

"Twilight" director Catherine Hardwicke is moving on to new things, but it looks like she's having a hard time breaking out of the "Twilight" mold she created in 2008.
Her latest movie, "Red Riding Hood," has nothing to do with vampires, but judging by the film's teaser, she simply copied and pasted several of the most memorable scenes from "Twilight" and replaced the main characters.
For instance, one scene in the "Red Riding Hood" teaser looks like a recreation of the scene in "Twilight" where Bella and Edward are having a conversation in a forest with the sun filtering through the trees. And as MTV notes, the main characters--who even look a bit like Bella and Edward--face away from each other when they're talking. Just like "Twilight."
Other striking similarities include landscape shots, love triangles, snow-bound love scenes and dancing around fires. And that's just from the teaser.
It may not sound like much, but considering the movies have the same director, Hardwicke's creativity will certainly be called into question. Following the unprecedented success of "Twilight," it looks like she's banking too hard on that film's technique to make her another hit.
