After a nearly three year delay (and a change of villains from the Chinese to the North Koreans), MGM has released a new poster (via Yahoo! Movies) for Red Dawn, a remake of the 1984 action film. Featuring a pre-Thor Chris Hemsworth and pre-Peeta Josh Hutcherson, the film now has the star-power to hold its own as Thanksgiving release (it opens November 21st, the day before the holiday). Red Dawn also stars Adrianne Palicki, Josh Peck, Isabel Lucas, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Check back tomorrow morning (August 10th) after 10 a.m. for the debut trailer.
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.
