About the film: 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 guerrilla 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.
Rated PG-13 for sequences of intense war violence and action, and for language.

I can't believe you people think the first had a good story - it was terrible, little more than a rednecks wet dream.

You are remaking Red Dawn, Are you crazy.
The original with(Patrick swayze, Charlie sheen, Jennifer grey , lea Thompson, C thomas Howell) . This is a classic you can't remake it. This is aa 80's cult classic. What Nex Fast Times @ Ridgemont High. Where SEAN PENN plays( THE tHE HISTORY TEACH).

Okay - I see where they're remaking The A-Team, The Karate Kid and now Red Dawn. What's next - Ferris Bueller's Day Off? The Breakfast Club? [Leave that one ALONE!!] Alien? STOP IT!!!

Seriously people, Red Dawn was an epic classic in most of our days, Still one of my favorite movies of all time.
But like I said of our days, I believe it was a good enough story for my now young teenager children to see. If they dont stray to far off the original story line. It will be another epic movie. Im looking forward to it

Stupid idea. It's not even relevant in this age. What a waste. Can't Hollywood come up with some original ideas?

Hey buddy I don't know if you know how in debt to china we actually are, do you? Half of American tax dollars go to paying china back. And our federal reserve is actively devalueing the united states currency, that may piss china off just a bit. Lately china's military technology is far better than ours and they spend far less on there defense budget some how. I don't know if you saw the stuff on the news that showed how they could target American sattelites in space with lasers and take them out. Ok so if they got pissed enough about the destruction of there investment going to shit (America I mean) what's to stop them from taking out our sattelites and destroying us. Most of our weapons and infrastructure is based on sattelites such as the phone, gps operated weapons systems, sattelite intel and other vital military aspecs I care not to think about at 3:30am. Regardless it wouldn't be hard for them to invade and rape this country of all it's resources if they chose to.

Who's making this one? If it's a Weinstein or Reiner financed film I bet the US deserves it and people are ultimately happy without their rights. Who's attacking us now too? The Russians are kind of gone, so who's up? They can't be racist (must be PC) so it can't be the Chinese, the Mexicans, some African nation, nor the Iranians. It's GOT to be those Russians again. Wierd and a likely bomb. Mind you, I do like the US waking up and kicking butt concept. JUST DO IT RIGHT!! Not all hick and redneck references.

Just wait in another 20 years, they'll re-make it again. This is just sad...
