So it looks like that Red Dawn remake that was made a couple of years ago is actually going to make it to the big screen. I don't know if you've seen then the original 1984 film, but it was laughably bad. It featured a small town being invaded by Soviet Union forces, and a small group of high school kids that escape into the woods and fight them off. It starred Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen, Lea Thompson, Jennifer Gray and C. Thomas Howell. The new film is basically the same story but it's North Korean's invading this time around, and it also has a strong cast of actors that includes Chris Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Adrianne Palicki, Isabel Lucas, Josh Peck, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Connor Cruise.
Today we've got our first look at the movie in the form of a promo spot that aired on Entertainment Tonight. I've also included a few images that hit the internet recently. I understand the original is kind of a cult classic, and it's fun to watch, but this remake doesn't look too bad.
Here's the synopsis:
In Red Dawn, a city in Washington state awakens to the surreal sight of foreign paratroopers dropping from the sky – shockingly, the U.S. has been invaded and their hometown is the initial target. Quickly and without warning, the citizens find themselves prisoners and their town under enemy occupation. Determined to fight back, a group of young patriots seek refuge in the surrounding woods, training and reorganizing themselves into a guerilla group of fighters. Taking inspiration from their high school mascot, they call themselves the Wolverines, banding together to protect one another, liberate their town from its captors, and take back their freedom.
The movie should finally hit theaters on November 21st of this year. Check out the sneak peak video and let us know if you're interested in checking this movie out?
