Chris Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson Save the Day in First 'Red Dawn' Trailer

The first trailer for the long-delayed Red Dawn remake is finally here. The film was re-worked in post-production with the main threat being changed from the Chinese (don't want to miss out on that lucrative international market) to the North Koreans.

Story-wise, the big shift from the original film to this remake are the characters going on a mission to save the day rather than just trying to survive. The original 1984 film starred Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen and C. Thomas Howell as they fought off an invading Soveit assault.

This remade Red Dawn stars Chris Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Adrianne Palicki, Josh Peck, Isabel Lucas and Jeffrey Dean Morgan and hits theaters November 21.

Here's the official synopsis:

"In Red Dawn, an American city 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."

Take a look at the first trailer, poster and a couple stills below and let us know if you think the remake can live up to the original movie.
