Another day, another remake. MGM's long-shelved remake of Red Dawn will finally be released at the end of this year with Film District and Open Road Films talking the distributing duty. Finished since 2010 but troubled by the MGM's financial saga, Red Dawn is the remake of 1984 film of the same name, directed by Dan Bradley and written by Jeremy Passmore and Carl Ellsworth. The trailer is here and is set to bring a different tone from the original. Watch it right after the jump.
The plot is as follow:
In the remake of the cult classic from 1984, an American city 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 stars Chris Hemsworth (Thor 2/Avengers), Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games), Adrianne Palicki (G.I. Joe 2), Isabel Lucas (Transformers 2). Currently Red Dawn is awaiting for release on November 21 in the United States but no words for local release here in Malaysia.
