With debut director Dan Bradley’s Red Dawn remake finally being released later this year, two new images have cropped up online.  The 1984 original, starring Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen, Lea Thompson, Jennifer Gray and C. Thomas Howell, became a cult classic, thanks in part to a group of American teenagers defending their town from invading forces from the Soviet Union.  Look for the remake to cast the villains as North Koreans this time around.  The surprisingly strong cast features Chris Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Adrianne Palicki, Isabel Lucas, Josh Peck, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Connor Cruise.  Red Dawn should finally be in theaters on November 21st of this year.  Hit the jump to see the newly released images and to read up on some choice quotes from the cast. Wolverines!

“Well, we are fighting an entire army, so that definitely stacks the odds against us. But it does help to have a superhero on your side.”

Peck comments further:

“We got a lot of firepower on our side.”

Hutcherson addresses the change in antagonists from the Chinese to the North Koreans:

“Originally it was the Chinese.  And then there was the thought that the Chinese own most of the companies making movies and that maybe it wasn’t the best idea in the world.”

Finally, Hutcherson commented on his on-screen best friend, Cruise, the son of veteran actor Tom Cruise:

“He definitely takes after his dad in the action department, 100%.”

He also quips about his lack of a love interest in Red Dawn, instead looking ahead to The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, saying:

“I’ve got to save all my love for Katniss Everdeen.”

red-dawn-josh-peck-josh-hutcherson-chris-hemsworthIn 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.
