Lost in Previews: Red Dawn

The poster for Red Dawn was just released a couple days ago, and now we have the trailer.  This film does not look half bad based on the trailer.  Granted, I have never seen the original Red Dawn, so it is hard for me to compare the two films.  Obviously Chris Hemsworth’s character is the hero of the group.  The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Adrianne Palicki, Josh Hutcherson, Josh Peck, Isabel Lucas, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Connor Cruise.  Dan Bradley directed the film.  It is a remake of the 1984 Red Dawn starring Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen C. Thomas Howell, and Lea Thompson.

“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.”

Red Dawn is in theatres November 21, 2012.
