The Red Dawn remake is one of those films that are out of sight, out of mind. Unless you’ve been following it feverishly you don’t really care that it exists. The movie stars a young and attractive cast of up and comers including Thor‘s Chris Hemsworth and fellow Aussie Isabel Lucas. “Friday Night Lights” Adrianne Palicki, as well as Josh Hutcherson and Connor Cruise (as in Tom’s son) are just some of the notables. The first cast photo for the movie popped up over on The Daily Blam, and we have to admit, it leaves much to be desired.
The original Red Dawn starred Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen, and Jennifer Grey as members of a rag tag group (nicknamed The Wolverines) whose town is invaded by Russian forces. In the remake, the Russians won’t be coming, but the Chinese will take their place. The movie experienced a delay last summer after MGM hit another financial roadblock, then some script excerpts were leaked, which Chinese officials deemed as offensive.
We’re assuming that the above photo is a random promotional shot. Jeffrey Dean Morgan also stars in the movie, yet he’s nowhere to be found here. What’s up with that?
What do you think of the new Wolverines?
