The remake of Red Dawn has taken so long that it’s making Guns & Roses “Chinese Democracy” album look hastily assembled, but a release date is finally in sight:

The long stagnating Red Dawn remake looks set to finally see the light of day, with a designated release date on the horizon. According to Box Office Mojo, the film will hit screens on November 2, 2012 – three years after filming wrapped.

A big black cloud has been hanging over Red Dawn in the form of the MGM bankruptcy saga, but, as reported here in September, independent distributor FilmDistrict struck a deal to finally get the film into cinemas, not matter how long it takes.

Another reason for the delay is that the “bad guys” invading the US in the remake were going to be the Chi-Coms, but that was changed after China was offended and the movie’s producers didn’t want to lose access to a paying Chinese movie-going audience. Besides, if we’re talking about a China invasion of the US, I believe that subject matter was covered many years ago in the film “Repo Man.”

The fact that the American movie producers changed their movie villain because China was offended might be evidence that China has already taken over, which would have made the original plot ridiculously redundant, not to mention dated.

It’ll be interesting to see the movie to find out if Kim Jong Il is successful in his US invasion. The “greens” would certainly be happy, because it would be “lights out” for America… literally.

When production is finished on the “Red Dawn” remake, the producers could probably make some money selling the propaganda posters used in the movie. Tell me Organizing for America couldn’t find some use for these.

    So who are the villains this time? Tea Party activists?

    Seeing how "Atlas Shrugged" bombed, I have serious doubts that anyone cares anymore. Even MM's blog has been taken over by vulgar RINO attack trolls.

    It may just be that the few of us still fighting are fighting a mop-up operation now that everyone else has surrendered. Where did the "conservatives" go?

    I'm a little surprised they didn't settle on the Grand Duchy of Fenwick as the invading villain.

  3. Doug on December 3rd, 2011 3:11 pm

    I can't believe they didn't think to make the Tea Party the villain!

    No matter who invades the US, fortunately President Killing Machine and his Nobel Peace Prize will blow the head off any threat foreign or domestic no questions asked in order to keep us free to try to imprison George W. Bush for illegal torture.

    The Tea Party does seem to be Hollyweird`s and this admin`s Enemy #1, and you are having a tuff time convincing MM`s crowd of your "real" idea for voting in the right people !

    I have an issue with your assessment of "Atlas Shrugged" though. I wasn`t aware that it "bombed". It wasn`t a great hit at the box office, but not a flop. The issue I have is the 3 part theater & DVD release. I`ve seen 1 DVD, which I bought and watched, and 2 Blue ray disks, so they aren`t languishing on the store shelves; it`s just a pain to anticipate the long wait for the second two parts !

    I haven`t read it yet, plan to, but unlike most people, I prefer to watch first, then read. That gives faces and visuals to the book and avoids some displeasure at any lack of fidelity to plot and characters. That`s just me !

    People may not agree with me but voting for more of the same is not the only alternative. Be that as it may, "Obama-loving Marxist, lying dildo" is not a suitable rebuttal to the points that I am making. Take my comments out of the threads and what is left is must a BFF club for that should be moved to someone's Facebook page.

    As to "Atlas Shrugged", it went straight to video. I didn't even know that there are now 3 parts available.Great marketing when people like me who are on every conservative list have to go looking for it.

  9. SignPainterGuy on December 3rd, 2011 4:44 pm

    I remain a registered republican precisely because that allows me to vote in primaries in NC. Primaries are extremely important to me as that`s how you get the best candidates on the final ballot.

    At the "Atlas Shrugged" w/s, it is stated that the DVDs are avail. ONLY from them. I was surprised to find it at Best Buy.

    Also, parts 2 & 3 are not produced or released yet, so don`t look for them. The story isn`t quite like "Star Wars" where they can split up the story and make more money. They may, but it just isn`t the epic deal.

    Cain just suspended his campaign !

    I thought that I was currently living in the times of the Chi-Com invasion.

    When was the last time anyone bought anything that didn’t say, “Made in China” or just take a walk around your house, pick out any object or article of clothing and read the label. But you can’t hold it for too long for fear of lead, mercury or some other heavy metal contamination. It’s more than depressing.

    While my Mom was on vacay in Hawaii, she asked me what I`d like her to bring me ? Since a Hawaiian shirt was out of the question, I asked for just anything "Made in Hawaii" !

    She came home with a coffee mug (made in Taiwan), a really neat wooden Mahi-Mahi key chain (made in the Philippines) and a pound of Kona coffee (90% Arabica). I had to laugh !

    I live about 25 miles from the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indians. When I was a kid, 90+% of their souvenirs were made in Japan !

    Moms with adult children can usually get a pass because they mostly buy from the heart.

  14. SignPainterGuy on December 3rd, 2011 7:34 pm

    Oh, I have no doubt the purchases came from the heart. Mom`s mind was beginning to slip even then, 12 yrs ago.

    I incl. the Cherokee souvenir story and that I had to laugh to explain that I know it wasn`t her fault that she missed "authenticity". Perhaps I "shortened" the story too much. Trying to be merciful ! ;-)

    Phil I'll have to back check the thread but I confronted one just the other day characterizing ( read personality assassination ) us Partiers as "worried about how they look at PTA meetings".

    Cute. As I mentioned, no need to THANK us for playing a pivotal role in the ramp up to the what [ultimately] came to fruition in the form of the "Mid-Term Miracle". I'm sure RINO's would've/could've/should've done that all… by 'themselves'? Right? Lol.

    No guys, with a business sector that's circling the drain, relying on funds that were -supposed- to be my 'retirement' to meet the monthly nut, a Guard base that could be shut down as a result of the Sup Com/Friends of Patty Murray and wife who's Fortune 500 co. passes out pink slips like 'X' at a rave party, gee, we're a little passed concern over how others might 'perceive' us? Ya' think!

    It's hopeless if conservatives again stay home or hold their noses and vote for a one-world-without-borders globalist liberal. The polls are telling us that it is a big mistake but again, we conservatives are again being criticized for being "purists", that "no candidate (liberal all) is good enough for us).

    A big chunk of the Reagan coalition (7-8 million Southernvoters) stayed home in 2008 fed up with all of the insults. Now they have turned their guns on the rest of us expecting to win? There is a reason Romney is going nowhere and Gingrich is a time bomb waiting to go off. If the Dems run Hillary, it's all over. The Stupid Party.

    And as you can see from the always vulgar and obnoxious OKloyalist being allowed to spit his venom everywhere unchecked, it appears to be acceptable. As long as you are a noseholder, you are allowed to say anything you want however vulgar, vile and/or empty of content .

    Do you and you droogs have anything but vulgariites and emoticons? Have you considered using facts and logic to engage in debate? Do you and your online goons actually think you can shut me up by intimidation? And for the millionth time, YOU CAN'T JUST CALL SOMEONE A LIAR. YOU HAVE TO PROVE IT. PROVE THAT I POST LIES OR DROP IT!

    If Michelle's and Doug's rules about "abusing one's posting privileges" are not enforced, maybe I should abandon my own civility and start "porning" up my own comments? How about it Doug? Is that where this is going? Do conservatives have a voice here? Are you going to allow the Okloyalists to turn yet another blog threads into a Republican HuffPo?

    Most states have open primaries and other states don’t even keep records of which party you belong to. In states like CA, it absolutely doesn’t matter whether you are registered to any party and by the time of the CA primary, the race is already over.

    Any CA conservative voter should be ashamed to be a Republican.


    How is it possible that CA already got decided for you when CA voted in Super Tuesday, the largest primary date that actually does set political destinies ?

    CA had closed primaries in 2008 since the law was passed in 2010.
