Yesterday we had the first poster for the new Red Dawn remake. Now, we’ve finally got the trailer. Along with a new cast and changing the bad guys from Russians to North Koreans, it will be interesting to see how different the two versions of the film are. Red Dawn stars Chris Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Adrianne Palicki, Josh Peck, Isabel Lucas, Edwin Hodge, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Red Dawn opens on November 21st.
In “Red Dawn,” 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.
Here’s the trailer to the original. How do you think they stack up against each other?
