Well here’s how a festival takes the fun of a film and stretches it into something fans can appreciate. News from FF HQ is that The Wolverines are infiltrating Fantastic Fest to defend all that is good and American! The world premiere of FilmDistrict’s Red Dawn will close Fantastic Fest, on Thursday, September 27, with stars Josh Peck and Adrianne Palicki in attendance. A Korean-invasion-themed party will follow the premiere screening to celebrate the closing night of the festival. If you’re planning to attend you still have time as Fantastic Fest will take place September 20-27 in Austin, Texas at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar.
Red Dawn stars a Pre-Thor Chris Hemsworth, Josh Peck, Josh Hutecherson, Adrianne Palicki, Isabel Lucas, Connor Cruise and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. In this remake, a city in Washington state awakens to the surreal sight of foreign paratroopers dropping from the sky – shockingly, the U.S. has been invaded and their hometown is the initial target. Quickly and without warning, the citizens find themselves prisoners and their town under enemy occupation. Determined to fightback, a group of young patriots seek refuge in the surrounding woods, training and reorganizing themselves into a guerilla group of fighters. Taking inspiration from their high school mascot, they call themselves the Wolverines, banding together to protect one another, liberate their town from its captors, and take back their freedom.

FilmDistrict will release Red Dawn in theaters nationwide on November 21, 2012, just in time for Thanksgiving. Can’t wait!!
