Saw the commercials and previews, didn't know they were remaking it. Have watched the original more times than I can count. Not sure if looking forward to the remake at this point or not, but will surely see it at some time.

thanks for the info, took awhile to decide to release it I guess. Loved the original, hopefully the remake does it justice.

MGM(original production company) had financial issue and shelved it and a new company swooped in to release it

I agree 100% with this conclusion John. Yet another example of Hollywood film Studios incapable or unable to produce anything original anymore. Just cashing in on a remake for the millionth time. :facepalm:

For those looking forward to this new "Red Dawn" version, by all means enjoy it...1 question about the original plot though: How does Russia/the USSR get tanks & heavy machinery snuck into the US quietly without the State Dept., Secretary of Defense, Secretary of State, CIA, NSA, FBI, & Special Forces not knowing about it exactly? The Kremlin approved this military invasion of a sovereign foreign nation? I don't think so... :loco:

How would a rogue government or sleeper splinter cell transport weapons & fuel through US Customs to pull off such a cloak & dagger invasion anyway? Let alone feed all those troopers to operate the tanks & other weapons?

Why can't they leave the original movies alone? As I did saw the remake of Footloose though!

I completely agree with you JPPT, but these same movie studios are banking on the fact that the consumer will break down & buy a ticket because your compulsion to compare & contrast the original film from the new remake will be too hard for a an interested person's curiosity to ignore. I have the same dilemma with new George Lucas Star Wars movies myself. Don't be too hard on yourself JPPT; it happens to all of us.

The funny story behind this movie was that it was originally filmed as the Chinese invading the US, but they decided to change that because they did not think it would play well over in China. So they changed it to the North Koreans invading us. I mean seriously North Korea invading a country of 300 million where most of us have guns? HA.

This movie looks like a fun action flick and only worth a rental or a watch on Netflix when it comes out.
