Red Dawn finally gets a release date! Hey there movie buffs, Im Tatiana carrier and Ive got the details on the official American release date for red dawn!

A remake of the invasion movie "Red Dawn" — with its villains now digitally modified from Chinese to North Korean — will finally hit American shores next year. This new version of the Reagan-era classic will be released in the U.S. by independent studio FilmDistrict.

The original "Red Dawn," is about a group of teenagers in a Washington town who battle invading Soviet forces, but in the remake, the invaders were changed to Chinese....which ulitmatly conpmpliucated things for the film.

After MGM emerged from bankruptcy in late 2009 and decided it wouldn't release the movie, no other studio wanted to touch "Red Dawn" for fear of offending the government of China, a hugely important market in the increasingly global film business....As a result, the movie's producers last winter used digital technology and creative editing to change most of the invaders to North Koreans. But even after that change it Still took most of the year to find a distributor willing to take the movie on.

FilmDistrict Chief Executive Peter Schlessel declined to discuss "Red Dawn." Given that final details are still being worked out, however, it likely won't hit theaters until 2012.

The new "Red Dawn" stars Chris Hemsworth, who played the title character in "Thor," and was directed by Dan Bradley, second unit director on the last two "Bourne" movies and the upcoming "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol."

Red Dawn should hit the theatres sometime in 2012 and as soon as we get details we will keep you posted!
