First Gun-Toting Cast Photo From the Red Dawn Remake

13 Comments

There was never really any doubt that we would be seeing MGM’s remake of “Red Dawn” on the big screen one of these days. It was always just a question of when. And despite Chinese anger at the Chinese being depicted as the film’s invaders (Cause, you know, you’d never see Westerners being cartoonishly evil in their movies. Ahem.), it’s now looking like we’ll be seeing a full-scale invasion of the homeland sometime in 2011, though when exactly is still up in the air. Given the premise, and the film’s budget, though, this thing was never going to sit on the shelf for too long, and it was just waiting for MGM to get their shite together.

The film’s got a pretty cool cast, consisting of the new Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, Josh Peck, “Legion’s” Adrianne Palicki, Isabel Lucas, Edwin Hodge, Alyssa Diaz, and even Tom Cruise’s little adopted kid, Connor Cruise, though you probably won’t recognize him as Cruise’s offspring. (Did I mention he’s adopted?) Jeffrey Dean Morgan is also in this thing, and when you can get the Comedian in your war movie, you must be doing something right.

Wish the pic was bigger, but hey, beggars can’t be choosers. And since we haven’t seen anything from the movie until now, it’s really slim pickings out there.

    Only way this’ll be worth it is if it’s as violent as the PG-13 original, which these days easy push it over into R territory.

      Yeah AND they have to do some different stuff too, cause I don’t want a straight remake. If we got a different group attacking I want some different action set pieces. But keep the “WOLVERINES!!!”

        Along with the war cry, I hope they keep what to me was another of the original’s strengths, SPOILER FOR A 25 YR OLD MOVIE: a willingness to kill off a good number of the good guys, almost all of them teenagers. I hope the remake doesn’t try to sell a happy ending with watered down violence (and this is where you can insert a massage parlor joke)

    My fear is that we will actually see a real “Red Dawn.” Not by the Chinese, but the Russians. And not as they did it in RD1, but done “right” — ie., nukes.

    And no, they’re not going for the farmland. That wasn’t rational. They’ll go for the technology, the academics (yes, they’ll put them on a boat and give them an apartment.) That’s what both the US and Russia did with German scientists.

    Sometime google the story about Bob Kraft’s Super-bowl ring and Russia’s Putin. It scares me that this is the guy who runs Russia.

  • whoawhoawhoawhoa!!

    Strange……………I had heard that Josh Hutcherson is going to be on the remake,that he’s going to play Robert.

  • Huh?
