The long-delayed Red Dawn remake is finally coming to theaters this fall on November 21st, 2012. It was another result of the MGM money problem that also held back the horror comedy The Cabin in the Woods, which also coincidentally stars Chris Hemsworth.
Red Dawn doesn’t look nearly as good as Cabin, but it doesn’t look as bad as one might imagine. Hemsworth stars in the film alongside Josh Peck, Josh Hutcherson, Isabel Lucas, Adrianne Palicki and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
A brand-new poster/trailer combo has been released, which creates some mixed emotions. The poster is kind of lame and generic, but the trailer features some decent action and some obvious American heroism. I kind of like how serious it plays out, because it might make for an exciting film that isn’t necessarily good, but something that still might be entertaining for the performances and action alone.
I’m hoping the film turns out to be a straight-faced approach, because an unintentionally funny film can be full of surprises and hidden moments that one might not expect.
