North Korea invades US of A in remake of 1980s flick . . .

A remake of Red Dawn, the Cold War action flick in which the USA is invaded by Russians and Cubans, has finally been given a release date after being shelved for almost two years thanks to MGM’s financial woes.

The movie will be released on November 2, 2012.

The remake stars Chris Hemsworth as an Iraqi vet who teams up with his little brother (Josh Peck) and a resistance group to fight a full-scale invasion of America by North Korea.

Apparently the invaders were initially China but all the Chinese flags have been digitally replaced with North Korean ones. So difficult to find decent enemies nowadays that the real enemy is America’s enormous deficit.

Red Dawn also stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Adrianne Palicki, Josh Hutcherson, Isabel Lucas, Josh Peck, Brett Cullen, Matt Gerald, Will Yun Lee, Michael Beach, and Connor Cruise. It is directed by Dan Bradley.

The original Red Dawn may have gone down well back in the days of Reagan but one wonders what audiences will make of it in today’s political milieu.
