Five With a Bad Vibe: 'Red Dawn'

In Theaters: November 21st
Starring: Chris Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson
Directed By: Dan Bradley
In 1984's Red Dawn, it was high schoolers fighting off a Commie invasion. Now it's North Korea raising the ire of the kids. The remake has been sitting on the shelf for three years due to studio financial problems, which usually means it just sucks. In the interim, Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games) upped their popularity profiles. I'm guessing it's not gonna help.
