Last night me and fellow Scott Alminiana caught a midnight showing of Total Recall and during the trailers we both looked at each other and realized that we were about to see the trailer for Red Dawn. While the official trailer has not been released online yet I can tell you that it looks pretty damn good and very much like the original. And that’s a very good thing. What I can show is this teaser that Entertainment Tonight showed giving you guys a first look at it.
In Red Dawn, a city in Washington state awakens to the surreal sight of foreign paratroopers dropping from the sky – shockingly, the U.S. 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. Taking inspiration from their high school mascot, they call themselves the Wolverines, banding together to protect one another, liberate their town from its captors, and take back their freedom.
Red Dawn invades theaters November 2, 2012.
