PHOTO: New still from Josh Hutcherson's upcoming movie 'Red Dawn' released!

A new still from the upcoming movie remake of "Red Dawn" starring our very own Josh Hutcherson has surfaced online, along with the news that the film will be premiering at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas on September 20-27, 2012. Check out the still and the report below from Los Angeles Times!

After a bankruptcy, a sale and a makeover, the controversial remake of “Red Dawn” will premiere later this month, closing out Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas. 
The film is a remake of the 1984 action film starring Patrick Swayze, Lea Thompson, Jennifer Grey, Charlie Sheen and Brad Savage as a group of Colorado teenagers (nicknamed the Wolverines) who wage a guerrilla war against invading Soviet Union forces.
In the remake, the teens are from Spokane, Wash., and are played by a new generation of heartthrobs : Chris Hemsworth (“Snow White and the Huntsman”), Josh Hutcherson (“The Hunger Games”), Adrianne Palicki (“Friday Night Lights), Josh Peck (“Drake & Josh”) and Connor Cruise (“Seven Pounds”), among others. But instead of playing to Cold War-era fears of a Soviet occupation, the screenplay called for Chinese invaders. 
“Red Dawn” is slated to hit theaters Nov. 21. Its Fantastic Fest world premiere at the Alamo Drafthouse will be accompanied by a “Korean-invasion-themed” party at the Austin American Legion, according to representatives of the genre film festival.
