After three years of an uncertain fate after the MGM bankruptcy, the remake of “Red Dawn” is just a few weeks away from hitting the big screen. Like its brother-in-arms “The Cabin in the Woods,” “Red Dawn” stars a couple doe-eyed up-and-comers who just may go on to star in “The Hunger Games,” or, in the case of both movies, “The Avengers.”
For a brief sneak peek at the trip back in time to 2009, look no further than this exclusive clip, which just so happens to feature Chris Hemsworth, years before he lead his hair grow out and began summoning thunder.
In the clip, we see Hemsworth as Jed, taking over the role from Patrick Swayze in the original 1984 from director John Milius, encounter Toni, played by “Friday Night Lights” stand-out and “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” star Adrianne Palicki. Jed and Toni briefly reminisce about the times their families used to camp together, an experience that should come in handy when the story of “Red Dawn” gets going.
For those of you unfamiliar with the basic premise of “Red Dawn,” the movie tells the story of a group of teens in small town America that escapes capture and bands together to form a guerilla-style resistance, known to them at the Wolverines, when the United States is invaded by North Korean forces. Jed, as the member of the Wolverines with actual military experience, becomes the leader of the militia as they fight to free their country.
“Red Dawn” also stars Josh Hutcherson, Isabel Lucas, and Jeffrey Dean Mrogan, and opens in theaters on November 21.
