Three years ago (before Thor or The Hunger Games), Chris Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson started filming the action-thriller "Red Dawn," a remake of the 80s cult classic from writer-director John Milius, which saw a group of high school rebels saving their small town from an invasion of Communist soldiers. Since then, the action movie struggled to find its way into theaters. But maybe due to the recent popularity of Hemsworth and Hutcherson, the studio has penciled the film for a November 21 theatrical release date. And, to prove they mean business, they have released the film's first trailer online. Here, we see the modern-day version (which co-stars Adrianne Palicki, Isabel Lucas, Josh Peck, Connor Cruise and Jeffrey Dean Morgan) has replaced the invading Soviet forces with terrifying platoons of North Korean soldiers. Hmm, we wonder what's the Korean translation for: Wolverines!
Red Dawn stars Chris Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Adrianne Palicki, Josh Peck, Isabel Lucas, Connor Cruise, Jeffrey Dean Morgan
Release: November 21st, 2012
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.
