We saw the first glimpses of footage last week, and now Red Dawn is here to blow us away with a full-length trailer. Get ready for explosions, evil North Koreans and Chris Hemsworth establishing himself as leader of the Wolverines.

So, in case you haven't been following this, let's recap. This is a remake of the 1984 cult classic about a group of teenagers who have to defend their hometown from a Russian invasion. Only this time, the teens are fighting North Korea (it was China, but digital alterations were made because, you know, American movies can make money in China now). Chris Hemsworth is a Marine visiting his hometown in the Pacific Northwest when the North Koreans knock out every electronic device in the region with a mysterious new weapon, and when most of the authority figures around are taken out, it's up to Hemsworth and his brother (Josh Peck) to get a band of teenage misfits together and take back their home.

Yeah, it sounds kinda silly, and we know you're thinking "ugh, another remake," but this actually does look pretty awesome. Check out the trailer.
