Red Dawn

We’re still expecting at least one more wave of announcements concerning the upcoming film slate at this year’s Fantastic Fest, but the festival’s closing night film is no longer a secret. The Chinese Koreans will invade Austin on September 27th for the world premiere of Red Dawn! The oft-delayed remake sees a group of not-so youthful looking youths forced to fight an incursion of Korean soldiers who somehow made their way into the United States and took control of the Midwest. It stars Chris Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Josh Peck, Adrianne Palicki, Isabel Lucas, Connor Cruise and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. My money is on Hutcherson peeing in the radiator. Check out the trailer below to prepare for the invasion.


Red Dawn Remake

The Red Dawn remake has been a long time in the making, specifically because it was made and then taken back into the deep bowels of production and post in order to change the main villain. That’s a daunting task when you’re replacing a bad guy, but it’s an insane job when you’re replacing hundreds of them. The plot to this one is the same as the plot to the 1984 John Milius joint where foreign invaders take over a small, rural community that happens to be loaded for bear. The high school kids grab weapons, lose some innocence and fight back the baddies. In these first photos, it’s clear that Chris Hemsworth, Josh Peck and Josh Hutcherson will be battling with guns and cold, steely stares. After losing to them in a staring contest, check out the second image below:



Latino Review has reported that screenwriter Tony Gilroy (Michael Clayton) will rewrite MGM/UA’s Red Dawn remake. Gilroy has penned the new screenplay to replace one written by Carl Ellsworth and Jeremy Passmore.

Our European correspondent Loukas checks in with an early review of Quantum of Solace from across the pond, and it looks like it’s just as badass as we’d hoped for.
