Red Dawn rebooted

I have to admit I enjoyed the original Red Dawn movie when it came out in 1984 and do rewatch it now and again.

The remake has been in the works for a fair few years now, same basic storyline as the 1984 movie, but this time no Russians or Cubans, now we have Chinese, sorry now it’s North Korean, invaders. They were going to be Chinese, but the movie makers realised that if they did that then they would be unable to show it in the China market and that’s a lot of potential tickets and money.

Looks like it could be fun. So far no real trailer, but there was some footage recently on Entertainment Tonight.

Update: ah the vagaries of YouTube means that the video has been removed by Open Road Films…
