Happy 28th Red Dawn!
The original Red Dawn was released in theaters 28 years ago today. It was the first PG-13 rated movie to hit the screens. Here is a little from Wikipedia:
It stars Patrick Swayze, C. Thomas Howell, Lea Thompson, Charlie Sheen and Jennifer Grey.
The film is set in an alternate 1980s in which the United States is invaded by the Soviet Union and its Cuban and Nicaraguan allies. However, the onset of World War III is in the background and not fully elaborated. The story follows a group of American high school students who resist the occupation with guerrilla warfare, calling themselves Wolverines, after their high school mascot.
If you haven't had a chance to see the original yet, rent it, buy it, or watch it on Netflix.
