The trailer does make it look like the action will be pretty cool. Sounds like the movie's been done for a long time, and MGM's financial troubles kept it from being released.

Interesting:

Quote:
China has become such an important market for U.S. entertainment companies that one studio has taken the extraordinary step of digitally altering a film to excise bad guys from the Communist nation lest the leadership in Beijing be offended.

When MGM decided a few years ago to remake "Red Dawn," a 1984 Cold War drama about a bunch of American farm kids repelling a Soviet invasion, the studio needed new villains, since the U.S.S.R. had collapsed in 1991. The producers substituted Chinese aggressors for the Soviets and filmed the movie in Michigan in 2009.

But potential distributors are nervous about becoming associated with the finished film, concerned that doing so would harm their ability to do business with the rising Asian superpower, one of the fastest-growing and potentially most lucrative markets for American movies, not to mention other U.S. products.

As a result, the filmmakers now are digitally erasing Chinese flags and military symbols from "Red Dawn," substituting dialogue and altering the film to depict much of the invading force as being from North Korea, an isolated country where American media companies have no dollars at stake.

Yeah, they made this a couple of years ago and never released it. Then they went in and changed all the Chinese references to North Korean. Then MGM went bankrupt. I bet it will be 10 kinds of stupid. You just know that with a production history like that, there's going to be major production flaws, continuity errors, etc. Plus just the fact that they're trying to glam up what was supposed to be a cheap, raw story.

Makes me want to go watch the original again.

so now we're rooting for the insurgency?? oh the irony...

the original was badazz at the time. re-watching it is a pretty interesting reminder of how we used to view the world and how that has changed.

I'll go see it even though it does kinda look like twilight with guns...

it isn't.

But keep in mind the context. The original Red Dawn movie was made during the time of Cold War, where the threat of communism expansion weighed heavily on the minds of the US Govt.
