Red Dawn: first teaser trailer
As the long-delayed Red Dawn remake edges towards release, an explosion-filled trailer appears...
Like the distant rumbles of thunder before a storm, those tantalising pictures we published yesterday were merely an appetiser before the following teaser trailer. And where there are teaser trailers, full on, two-minute trailers inevitably follow.
We're rather fond of uncle John Milius' 1984 Cold War action fantasy, Red Dawn, in which Patrick Swayze and a bunch of high school chums defend their US town from invading Commie forces. The new film appears to be a faithful rendering of that earlier film, eccept with Chris Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson and some lad in a hat [that's Josh Peck – Ed] taking over as the young guns, who are all disappointingly mullet-free.
There are lots of explosions, plenty of boo-hiss invading villains (who are most definitely not from China) and the same frosty atmosphere as the 80s version. No Harry Dean Stanton cameo though, as far as we can tell.
This teaser trailer's taken from a US TV show, which explains the rather distracting female Dalek who shouts all over it. When we find a Dalek-free full trailer, we'll post that too.
