Koch Media have announced today that they have secured the rights to theatrical and home entertainment distribution in the UK for Red Dawn from Metro-Goldwyn Mayer Studios Inc. and are set to unleash it on UK cinema screens March 15th 2013.
A city in Washington State awakens to the surreal sight of North Korean paratroopers dropping from the sky – 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 reorganising 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.
A re-boot of the 1984 cult-classic hit film Red Dawn stars man-of-the- moment Chris Hemsworth and a host of bright young talent including Josh Hutcherson, Josh Peck, Adrianne Palicki, Connor Cruise, Isabel Lucas and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. (Source)

Well, this is good news indeed for us living in the UK..We did not get the release of Cash here only on DVD and up until now no sign of the remake of Red Dawn hitting our UK Cinemas..
It will be good to see Chris, up there on our screens in Red Dawn.
I can only hope this will happen.. Plus, we don’t have a DVD release date here of Red Dawn in the UK either. WHY…?
We love Chris as much as anyone so why is it the UK is missing out on this fine actor…..?

I must be the only guy in the uk who has seen it, they changed the story line, in the original Darrell gets shot and killed for being the traitor in this version they let him live. The ending has been changed too so they have left it open for a follow on, the Australians did a shit version called tomorrow when the war began
