RED DAWN is a long-delayed action war film directed by Dan Bradley and written by Jeremy Passmore and Carl Ellsworth, based on the 1984 cult classic of the same name. The remake stars Thor’s Chris Hemsworth and Josh Peck as brothers Jed and Matt Eckert, with The Hunger Games’ Josh Hutcherson joining the rag-tag bunch of youngsters teaming up to take on the threatening menace from North Korea. Adrianne Palicki, Isabel Lucas, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Connor Cruise also stars.
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.
