I am thrilled that Shout! Factory has selected Red Dawn to get their royal treatment. I cannot wait to see “A Look Back At Red Dawn”, the new special feature created for this release. Red Dawn has a special place in my heart, being a child of the eighties, being named Robert, having a brother, and a best friend named Matt. We will bring you a review of this release when it arrives in March!
Press Release: From legendary writer-director John Milius (Apocalypse Now, Conan The Barbarian) comes the tale of what-could-have-been, had the Cold War gone another way. When Communist paratroopers descend on a Colorado high school football field, a group of students wages an all-out guerilla war to save their town — and their country. Powerful and gripping, RED DAWN features an all-star cast, including Patrick Swayze (Road House), C. Thomas Howell (The Outsiders), Lea Thompson (Back To The Future), Ben Johnson (Terror Train), Harry Dean Stanton (Alien), Ron O’Neal (Super Fly), William Smith (Conan The Barbarian), Charlie Sheen (Platoon), Jennifer Grey (Dirty Dancing) and Powers Boothe (Tombstone).
