The long-in-the-works remake of 'Red Dawn' premiered at Fantastic Fest the other day (check out our own Matt Singer's review here), but those eagerly anticipating the remake of the 1984 semi-classic will have to wait until November 21 to see it for themselves. If you just can't wait, Ain't It Cool News has premiered a new clip from the film, which you can watch for yourself below.

'Red Dawn' Review

I've seen plenty of airbrushed actors in my time, but I don't know if I've ever watched an airbrushed movie before the new version of 'Red Dawn.' This remake of John Milius' conservative '80 classic strips away almost all of the material's political dimensions, turning a gonzo paranoid fantasy into just another slick action movie. The original was crazy and silly, but at least it was deeply felt. The new one scrubs and smudges the quirks away, along with anything interesting or edgy. It's pretty but plastic.

Can 'Snow White and the Huntsman 2' Succeed Without Snow White?

Imagine a movie just about the Temple of Doom, no Indiana Jones. How about one solely following the Prisoner of Azkaban with no Harry Potter in sight? Having a ‘Snow White and the Huntsman 2’ without Snow White just sounds odd. She is the brand.
As 'Snow White and the Huntsman' hits home video, it’s worth taking another look at where the property will go next. Since my last column devoted to plans for a ‘Snow White and the Huntsman 2,’ a few things have happened. The worst of them, to be honest, is that Bob Hoskins (“Muir”) has decided to retire from acting. So there goes one of the dwarfs. Greater issue for some of the movie’s fans, however, is the possible elimination or minimization of Kristen Stewart and the Snow White role. Goodbye presumed love triangle! So now what?

'Snow White and the Huntsman 2' Ditches Kristen Stewart, May Spin-Off Chris Hemsworth

Earlier this year, Universal was so high on 'Snow White and the Huntsman' that they hired David Koepp to draft a sequel before the first film was even released. The film ended up doing $154 Million domestic and nearly $400 Million worldwide (on a $170 Million budget), so a sequel made sense. Then it came out that Kristen Stewart and director Rupert Sanders had an affair. And now Koepp has left the sequel, Universal is saying that Stewart won't be back and they're talking about focusing on Chris Hemsworth's Huntsman.

Hot on the heels of its official release date announcement, the first stills from Ron Howard's 'Rush' have hit the internet via the film's official website. If you don't know anything about this movie and want to know why it should be on your radar in one sentence or less, here's what you need to know: Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl play rival Formula One drivers. Yeah. That does sound awesome.

Although the following paragraphs will essentially be a report about some pretty standard movie industry going-ons, it's also a nice look at the interesting variety of projects that Universal has on its plate. Sure, the meat of the story here is that the studio has set release dates for 'Oblivion,' 'Rush' and 'Mama,' but can you think of three projects that sound more different and involve such talent?

Though he's currently got at least two hit franchises under his belt, it's unknown if audiences love Chris Hemsworth. In both 'Thor' and 'The Avengers' he's a charming leading man, but they're not really his movies, and it's hard to say if he brought people in for 'Snow White and the Huntsman.' It looks like he'll be putting his star power to the test with 'In the Heart of the Sea.'
