At the very least, the first trailer for the “Red Dawn” remake is a magical trip back to 2009.
Thanks to MGM’s bankruptcy, the nearly three-year-old retelling of a
Chinese North Korean invasion of the United States is finally getting a release. The film hits this Thanksgiving, but today Yahoo! Movies dropped the first trailer for “Red Dawn,” starring Chris Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, and Adrianne Palicki.
Check it out after the jump!
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.
