FilmDistrict has handed out a November 2, 2012 release date for the long-delayed action remake Red Dawn. The movie was shelved for the past two years, due to MGM's financial troubles. We reported in September that FilmDistrict picked up Red Dawn's distribution rights.

Red Dawn stars Chris Hemsworth, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Adrianne Palicki, Josh Hutcherson, Isabel Lucas, and Josh Peck. The story centers on a group of youngsters dubbed "Wolverines," who fight back against a Communist invasion on U.S. soil. We also reported back in March that the Communist enemy was changed from Chinese to North Korean, with the filmmakers digitally changing all of the Chinese flags to North Korean.

Red Dawn will square off against the Paramount comedy My Mother's Curse and Pixar's Wreck-It Ralph on November 2, 2012.

Red Dawn was released November 21st, 2012 and stars Chris Hemsworth, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Adrianne Palicki, Josh Hutcherson, Isabel Lucas, Josh Peck, Brett Cullen, Matt Gerald. The film is directed by Dan Bradley.

    Movie is made. Done. Read to go. Why not release it the same month as Avengers? Yes this movie might suck, and I will no doubt see it cause I love this movie idea, despite it being a remake. But with Chris Hemsworth becoming a big name in movies, it could pull some free publicity off his name and Avengers movie.
