Freaking out about Sci-fi & Moives

Red Dawn (2012), Trailer

I have known for some time now that the classic 1984 film Red Dawn starring Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Grey and Charlie Sheen was going to be remade.
As the original film was about Russia invading the US, I wondered if the remake would be a period film set in the 80’s at the height of the cold war, or would they swap the Russians for the Chinese?

That question was not answered by the trailer as the invaders looked Asian, and my first thought was that it is the Chinese, but after looking on Wiki I have found out that it is in fact the North Korea.
The North Korea idea has been used recently in the 2011 video game from THQ, Homefront.
However the remake of Red Dawn has been sitting on a self since November 2010 due to MGM financial issue. Will the remake be any good, I don’t know as remakes have not been that great, however there are a few exceptions.
The film Stars, Chris Hemsworth, Josh Peck, Adrianne Palicki, Josh Hutcherson, Isabel Lucas, Mason
Edwin Hodge, Connor Cruise and Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Lt. Col. Andrew Tanner.

Enjoy the Trailer.

  1. They’re remaking this?! The original sucked, IMO. I saw it for the first time last year and I didn’t really care for it. I’d heard of it before, especially in one of the GTA games (Vice City or San Andreas) on the Ammunation commercial where they refer to it as a “documentary.” (not that’s funny. ;))

    The new one looks “meh.” Another remake (ugh.) Though,it makes sense that they’re not going with Russians again, since they’re not “Red” (Communist) anymore. According to IMDb, they’re North Koreans, which makes sense because North Korea is still Communist.

    • I actually like the first one, but then I saw that in the 80’s as a snooty nose kid, 😉
