I’m excited and dismayed at the same time; the movie looks awesome, but I feel so old cuz they’re making remakes of my favorite movies!

Principal photography began September 2009 in Mount Clemens, Michigan.
According to photographs taken on set, the film features propaganda pamphlets, posters, and banners featuring People's Liberation Army symbols, such as the August 1 star. The posters, which are designed to be satirical in nature, attempt to garner support for a Chinese occupation, with slogans such as "Rebuilding Your Reputation," "Repairing Your Economy," and "Fighting Corporate Corruption."
In June 2010, release of the film was delayed due to MGM’s financial difficulties. The delay came amid growing controversy in China after excerpts of the script were leaked on the website The Awl. The film drew sharp criticism from the Global Times, one of the leading Chinese state-run newspapers, with headlines such as "U.S. reshoots Cold War movie to demonize China" and "American movie plants hostile seeds against China." One of the articles stated: "China can still feel U.S. distrust and fear, especially among its people. Americans’ suspicions about China are the best ground for the hawks to disseminate fear and doubt, which is the biggest concern with the movie, Red Dawn."

In January 2011, the first cast photo was released along with news that MGM will release the film once their Chapter 11 restructuring is completed. Red Dawn is one of three already completed MGM projects scheduled to be released in 2011.
In March 2011, the Los Angeles Times reported that MGM is changing the villains in its Red Dawn remake from Chinese to North Korean in order to maintain access to China's lucrative box office. The changes reportedly cost less than $1 million and involve changing an opening sequence summarizing the story's fictional backdrop, re-editing two scenes and using digital technology to transform many Chinese symbols to Korean. The changes will not eliminate all references to China though will give North Korea a much larger role in the coalition that invades the U.S. Producer Trip Vinson stated, "We were initially very reluctant to make any changes, but after careful consideration we constructed a way to make a scarier, smarter and more dangerous 'Red Dawn' that we believe improves the movie."

When will Hollywood start coming up with worthwhile NEW scripts again? Do they not have enough monkeys?

After reading that MGM changed the villains from Chinese to North Koreans because the Chinese didn’t like it....Won’t be seeing it.

The irony of this movie, is that it was filmed many months ago. It’s release was delayed indefinitely for fear it would offend the Chinese who were invading us.
Now in the editing, the Chinese have been changed into North Koreans, so we don’t offend China. If we can’t bring ourselves to offend them, how could we ever shoot guns at them?

This is so retarded of a concept that it makes the movie just silly. A backwards starving hillbilly nation that posesses a grand total of THREE IL-76 military transport aircraft is pulling off the airborne invasion?

Oh wait, i forgot about the 300 An-2 biplane transports they own but have grounded due to fuel shortages.

There is no hook, nothing to relate to, no relevance to any reality, and North Korea?

Sometimes a movie can have a premise so silly that even a person who wants to enjoy the movie cannot get past the silliness.

North Korea?

So the North Koreans manage to disable all of the U.S. military in the western U.S. and invade?

Never mind the ships at sea, the armies stationed in Asia, Europe, in the eastern U.S., and in the Atlantic??

They are able to fly large and slow propeller planes across the Pacific ocean, completely undetected even though they barely have electricity for 99% of their country?

What a sucker’s film.

I could half way believe North Korea if we were next door neighbors to them but how in the world did North Korea manage to transport enough people to invade Granada much less the U.S.

I don’t think I have ever seen a sequel as good as the original. There must be some but I can’t recall any off hand.

They should have made “Muslim Dawn”, but it would never have gotten produced.

I was really excited about this until they kowtowed to Chinese interests. But hey, it was a business decision, and it’s only a movie. I still have my VHS copy of the original.
