MGM has unveiled the official trailer for the upcoming "Red Dawn" remake, starring Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games), Josh Peck (The Wackness), Adrianne Palicki ("Friday Night Lights"), Isabel Lucas (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen), Connor Cruise (Seven Pounds) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen). Check it out below.
Plot: In "Red Dawn," a city in Washington state awakens to the surreal sight of foreign paratroopers dropping from the sky – shockingly, the US 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 guerilla group of fighters.
The new movie is directed by Dan Bradley and is set to hit theaters on November 21st.

Smells like bullsh*t.

Okay, so how the f*ck do they get all that hardware into the US? Was it 'No Radar in America', or something? Come on! Did the US military just decide to take a vacation?
If it wasn't for Bond, MGM would be bankrupt for the tenth time.
And I had to watch an ad just to watch a f*cking ad? Just like the other day, I finally saw Prometheus in the theater for $2.50, and I had to endure no less than fifteen f*cking ads BEFORE I got to the movie ads (trailers).
No Stand-Down Order
Claim: No fighter jets were scrambled from any of the 28 Air Force bases within close range of the four hijacked flights. "On 11 September Andrews had two squadrons of fighter jets with the job of protecting the skies over Washington D.C.," says the Web site emperors-clothes.com. "They failed to do their job." "There is only one explanation for this," writes Mark R. Elsis of StandDown.net. "Our Air Force was ordered to Stand Down on 9/11."
FACT: On 9/11 there were only 14 fighter jets on alert in the contiguous 48 states. No computer network or alarm automatically alerted the North American Air Defense Command (NORAD) of missing planes. "They [civilian Air Traffic Control, or ATC] had to pick up the phone and literally dial us," says Maj. Douglas Martin, public affairs officer for NORAD. Boston Center, one of 22 Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regional ATC facilities, called NORAD's Northeast Air Defense Sector (NEADS) three times: at 8:37 am EST to inform NEADS that Flight 11 was hijacked; at 9:21 am to inform the agency, mistakenly, that Flight 11 was headed for Washington (the plane had hit the North Tower 35 minutes earlier); and at 9:41 am to (erroneously) identify Delta Air Lines Flight 1989 from Boston as a possible hijacking. The New York ATC called NEADS at 9:03 am to report that United Flight 175 had been hijacked—the same time the plane slammed into the South Tower. Within minutes of that first call from Boston Center, NEADS scrambled two F-15s from Otis Air Force Base in Falmouth, Mass., and three F-16s from Langley Air National Guard Base in Hampton, Va. None of the fighters got anywhere near the pirated planes.
Why couldn't ATC find the hijacked flights? When the hijackers turned off the planes' transponders, which broadcast identifying signals, ATC had to search 4500 identical radar blips crisscrossing some of the country's busiest air corridors. And NORAD's sophisticated radar? It ringed the continent, looking outward for threats, not inward. "It was like a doughnut," Martin says. "There was no coverage in the middle." Pre-9/11, flights originating in the States were not seen as threats and NORAD wasn't prepared to track them.

Yeah, right, NORAD had to wait for the civilian ATC to tell THEM they had a problem! NORAD don't have a f*cking radar and can't detect some suspicious fly over New York for 40 min with no answers from those 2 civilian planes! No answer for 40 min! What's the bloody use of NORAD then? They should be taking a decision ONLY when they are told to!? Bullsh*t! What is their first reason to exist on a first place if it isn't to prevent ANY suspicious movement in the air?

Thor, and the adopted son of tom cruise who is now a dj can go suck donkey balls. There is a reason this movie has been on yhe shelf/completed but not released for what seems like 5 years now. Stay away.....stay far away. Basicly treat them as if they were actual wolverines. Yikes!
@chase the one comment wonder...maybe you shouldve been the one that daddy shot against the shower wall

I have to wonder how people like yourself end up with so much money when people like me have to struggle. Oh, wait, look, it's humanity, where greed is worshiped over intellect.
Strange then that certain folks on here hate 'Jews' when they're just like them. lol. Must be a greed-competition thing.
Anyway. NORAD looks OUT, not IN. And the planes turned OFF their f*cking transponders.
Jesus f*cking christ in the ass. You can speak three languages, as you're so wont to brag, but you can't read and understand basic English?
I guess that's the difference between regurgitating bullsh*t and genuine comprehension. But, hey, it's the internet, so you're in gooooooood company.
"What is their first reason to exist on a first place if it isn't to prevent ANY suspicious movement in the air?"
NORAD. Looks. Out. Not. In. Try. Reading. More. Next. Time.
This is one of the kinda silly, hastily conceived plots from the 80's that should've died with that decade. We have our own crop of crappy plots for the present time and we don't need them being crowded out by sh*tty ones from the past. :)

Something tells me China's complaints had very little to do with this film's delay. It looks absolutely TERRIBLE!!! I should have stopped watching after the PG-13 label hit. What a f*cking joke. And f*ck anyone who criticizes the original. Sure it was Cold war propaganda at its best, but that film had serious heart and some pretty decent acting from the Rat Packers of the time. Hemsworth doesn't stand a chance of filling Swayze's shoe in this one. No way he can pull off Swayze "Don't Cry" scene :-)
