In the midst of the awards season, it’s easy to lose track of some of the other films coming out towards the end of the year, and a good example of that is perhaps the upcoming Red Dawn, remaking the original cult favourite.

The first trailer for the film landed back in the summer, and we got our first clip from the film last month, and with its release only two weeks away, the campaign will no doubt be gearing up in the coming days, now releasing a new clip and two TV spots.

“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.”

Chris Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Josh Peck, Adrianne Palicki, Isabel Lucas, Brett Cullen, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan lead the cast, with long-time stunt co-ordinator Dan Bradley (the Bourne films, Three Kings) making his directorial debut from a script by Carl Ellsworth (Disturbia) and Jeremy Passmore (Special).

Red Dawn will be hitting US theatres in two weeks, on 21st November, just in time for Thanksgiving. Still no word yet on a UK release, but with the cast as big as it is, we’ll hopefully see it in our cinemas early in the New Year.

Since graduating, I spend as much time as possible watching films/TV shows, reading books, and listening to music. So getting to write about what I love is nothing short of awesome. Biggest film-related hope for 2014/ever: Guy Ritchie announcing the RocknRolla sequel is finally moving forward.
