First Look: Red Dawn TrailerDoes this official trailer mean the Red Dawn remake will actually be hitting theaters this year? Finally? Shot back in 2009, the remake of the popular ’80s film has been shuffled around so much that it’s hard to get worked up about any announced theatrical release date. Now set for a launch on November 21, 2012, this version of everyday Americans taking on foreign invaders stars Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games), Josh Peck, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Isabel Lucas.
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.
