Back in September we reported that FilmDistrct, the studio that released Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark and Drive theatrically, has picked up the shelved Red Dawn remake for release in the US sometime in 2012. Now, Box Office Mojo is reporting that the release date is November 2nd, 2012.
That’s a ways off, but it’s a slow start to making its way to theaters. Red Dawn has had nothing but trouble trying to make its way to the big screen. It originally was scheduled for a November release back in 2010, but then it got put on hold because of MGM’s money problems. Making matters worse, the film was digitally altered in post-production to change the enemies from Chinese to North Korean, because of concerns with the original distributor.
I must mention that not much news has come from that last piece of information. So it’s not for sure who the enemies will be in the cut of the film that we get to see (hopefully) in November of next year.
In less controversial news, J.J. Abram‘s Star Trek sequel is now slated for May 17th, 2013. I’m hoping that date sticks, but because of how far away it is Paramount could easily push it up a few months or move it back. As long as a date is given and Abrams is officially ready to go I think all fans will be pleased.
Are you the least bit interested in the Red Dawn remake? Are you excited to hear about Star Trek 2 getting a release date?
