A sneak peek at the upcoming trailer for the remake of Red Dawn has gone online. For those unfamiliar with the film, it’s about a group of teenagers who decide to take up arms and fight against a foreign invasion. In the original 1984 version, it was the Russians, and the remake wanted to update the invaders to the Chinese. However, after they finished shooting, the producers discovered that this might hurt distribution in China, so they decided to do some CGI change-ups to the flags and turn the invaders into North Koreans (in the hopes that you don’t notice that Chinese people and Korean people don’t look the same).
If you forgot that there was a remake of Red Dawn, you’re not alone. The film was completed years ago, but had to sit on the shelf while MGM went through a financial meltdown (a fate shared by The Cabin in the Woods). The movie was picked up for distribution by Film District in September 2011, and it will finally hit theaters on November 21st. The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Adrianne Palicki, Isabel Lucas, Josh Peck, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Connor Cruise. Hit the jump to check out a sneak peek at the trailer.
