Red Dawn Remake Set Photos

Be disturbed at not understanding. That's one of the phrases the Chinese are using to convince us that we weren't really free when we were run by a Democratic government before they invaded. A new blog called has been following the Red Dawn remake very closely, which includes posting new photos from the set in Pontiac, MI (doubling as Spokane) as often as they can. In one of their galleries they have a few great photos of the set dressing in the small town where the film takes place. It shows all of the Chinese propaganda that was put up in the town as part of their invasion. Anyway, check out these photos!

Yes, if you didn't already known, in this Red Dawn remake the invading country is China, not Russia/Cuba, since it's a more realistic representation of the times. I don't have a problem with that, it makes sense, so why complain. Anyway, the more I see from this the more excited I get. Maybe it's just my optimism kicking in, but I'm hoping this turns out pretty awesome. This Red Dawn stars Chris Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Isabel Lucas, Adrianne Palicki, Josh Peck, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. The film is being directed by former stunt coordinator and second unit director Dan Bradley. Currently set for release on September 24th, 2010.

    Boy. I am very excited for this. The propaganda is unsettling to me--in the best way possible.
  • whomever
    Very much anticipating the new Red Dawn. The originals is one of my favorite movies of all time. I'm following Red Dawn 2010 on Twitter. They're doing great stuff.

    The third picture down seems to hit the nail on the head with what a lot of people are asking for.
  • Nemo
    Not to be dense, but what does the symbol in the red star mean? Is it the glyph for America in Chinese?
  • Powerful. Can't wait for a trailer!
  • Ajax
    Holy cow, this looks great!
  • I am Ron Burgandy?
    Wolverines! Awesome, I loved this movie growing up! Bring the trailer! Suprised Im not reading dozens of lines from the reboot haters?
  • Great more anti commie propaganda, it's like the 80's all over. I think some of those taglines are true though. I'm ready, don't fight it, feel it!
  • LOL, in Pontiac, MI? You can't get much more "Wolverines" than that. Ok I guess they could have filmed it in Ann Arbor, but still.
  • Ben
    Looks awesome. Anybody know the budget for this film?
  • zetsu

    @13 50M as advised from an MGM glimpse of their "books"
  • Chris H
    wow. This is happening a lot sooner than I thought. Awesome stuff. Should be a great parody on the paranoia against China's rise in economic and military strength.
  • SS
    Could be one of the most important movies of recent times. A nice companion to "Founding of a Republic".
  • Ray
    This is the vision of the future!
  • European
    The posters tell the truth especially the last picture, you calling the posters propaganda is propaganda. Posters tell the truth just like what Micheal Moore says, word for word.
  • Looks Good
    seems its Americas fault from reading the plot. Good for the progressive marxist writers and the world, America needs to become Socialists...
  • Habib
    the last Red Dawn was racist & anti-Islamic. this one looks to expose it and fix it. Down Amerikka Down
  • LuckyLoser
    lol like 1/4 of china's population can wipe us out like nothing, even back in the 1860s, china had around 580 million people!
  • cornholio_by_the_sea
    being a big fan of the original I was totally against this in the beginning...but seeing the changes they have made to the basic storyline I see myself drawn to this remake as somethig more than could well serve as a message to us all of possible future events ....I am now looking forward to more on this...

    Does anyone know what the budget of the film will be. Ive heard figures of up to 75 million. As far as China actually going to war with the USA, dont hold your breath. Yes China has the largest army in the world. 2.5 million. But I think its jumping the gun when people start saying China could kick the USA's butt. Dont get me wrong CHINAs military is strong, powerful, and dangerous. But the USA military could defeat it. If its a conventional war, China loses, if it goes nuclear, both sides lose. I've been in the US armed forces for over 20 years, from grunt to intelligence, and I can say with full assurance that the US is ready for anything our friends in Red China might try. In both Iraq wars and the war in Afghanistan the US hasn't used even a third of its overall conventional firepower(air,ground,naval) if we did that in Iraq and Afghanistan every town, city, village would be wiped out in no time. China may have numbers, but the USA has many (conventional) weapons that would totally devastate Chinas military infrastructure. But for a movie China invading will make for good entertainment. WOLVERINES!!!!!!

    At #24: It's possible the new Red Dawn movie hints at Economic Collapse/Vested Interest as the trigger? There are many creative ways for something like this to happen. I believe Tom Clancy's group wrote a few such possibilities (other than old fashioned Imperialism) in the story for "EndWar".

    Who needs an invasion? Sounds pretty real to me.
  • forReal
    Paronoid trash, total BS!
  • Roger Clemmens
    I have the feeling the remake is going to be verrrry "safe" since China isn't technically considered hostile to the US (well, a few of us would disagree, including Trump). The first one worked because of the Cold War. I hope it's not an A-team slash Transformers nonsense film with explosions as plot points. I hope the most serious part of the dialogue isn't some 16 year old brat making a point that we allowed most of our products to be manufactured overseas and this precipitated everything. I fear the worst... Straight to video.
  • Roger Clemmens
    Oh, another thing. Are the Chinese tanks going to be American tanks with metal cut-outs welded to the side? Are the Chinese soldiers going to be wearing Korean-war era outfits? Ohhhh, puke! I ask this 'cause the Chinese propaganda posters look like they were borrowed from the set of 'V' - pathetic.
  • Brett
    I mean, sure the idea is okay, but all it ends up being is fearmongering. China doesn't have a navy to support operations against the United States. That means that however-many-million strong army isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Not to mention the original Red Dawn wasn't any good to begin with, all that was was Cold War propaganda. Red Dawn was no better then Red Nightmare or Invasion U.S.A. or any other low-budget propaganda film that focused on Soviet invasion.
