Red Dawn, a remake of the 1984 film is based on the story of a young group of children wherein their small town is invaded by foreign militaries from Cuba and Russia. Posing as tourists, these foreign invaders led the way for a mass invasion of troops deep into American territory. Once all hell has broken loose, the United States Military has been overwhelmed which led to the isolation of many states to these invaders. It is up to a small bunch of teens led by Jed Eckert, his younger brother, and other teens who have survived the attacks to stop the invaders and save their town. With freedom and revenge on their minds, they form up a guerilla group named Wolverines. This is in honor of their school mascot and their source of inspiration to set free their town from the foreign invaders until the US military can take control again.
Adapted from the 1984 film, this film is directed by Dan Bradley in association with Open Road Films. Scheduled to be released this coming November 21, 2012, Red Dawn will surely be a huge hit to many fans of the old film as well as to the new ones. The cast of this new version film consist of Chris Hemsworth, Josh Peck, Adrianne Palicki, Josh Hutcherson, Isabel Lucasa, and the highly anticipated Connor Cruise.
