Prepare to cower at the terrifying might of … the North Koreans?
Is the “Red Dawn” reboot a comedy? Will there be pratfalls? Because evidently there’s really only so much suspension of disbelief the Twitterverse can handle.
Wait, the Red Dawn bad guys are North Koreans? Do we defeat them by introducing them to electricity?

So is everyone going to ignore the fact that Red Dawn has N. Korea invading the U.S. even tho they have yet to successfully launch a missle?

The North Koreans invade in RED DAWN 2012? C'mon….They couldn't invade South Korea and get away with it.

The prob with new RED DAWN is that N. Korea can't get across their own border, much less an ocean. My guess: they don't make it past Hawaii.

This Red Dawn trailer is meh anyway http://t.co/BY239xDl But knowing that the invaders are North Koreans? Galactically idiotic

I will not be seeing Red Dawn remake. North Korea couldn't invade Rhode Island, let alone entire US. Let Patrick Wayne Swayze rest in peace!

Wait, North Korea is the antagonist in the Red Dawn remake? That's awful. Hell, Russia being the bad guy again would have made more sense.

Also, RE Red Dawn remake- N. Korea is the bad guy that takes down America? Please. Have the balls to make China the villain.

Actually, China was the villain when the remake was filmed. But the filmmakers took the digital eraser to Chinese flags and other symbols in post-production so they wouldn’t offend the delicate sensibilities of the lucrative Chinese box-office market.
Any suggestions for the bad guys in the inevitable remake of the remake? We shudder to imagine what Hollywood might come up with.
