The Red Dawn remake is one that I'm still a little surprised has finally seen the light of day. It was filmed in 2009 originally, but ended up getting buried due to a combination of MGM's financial trouble and perceived negative reactions from China. Now, the film has resurfaced after reshoots changed the villains from China to North Korea. We're still waiting to see just how smoothly that transition goes, but now we've been given a trailer. Check it out after the jump.
It's.....ok. Some of the action looks pretty exciting, certainly much more so than the pretty boring original. But, the message seems too one dimensional. For all of the original's problems, at least it brought some deeper issues, like loss of innocence. But, I already feel like I've seen everything meaningful that I'll get in the final film.
