FilmDistrict has handed out a November 2, 2012 release date for the long-delayed action remake Red Dawn. The movie was shelved for the past two years, due to MGM’s financial troubles. We reported in September that FilmDistrict picked up Red Dawn’s distribution rights.
Red Dawn stars Chris Hemsworth, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Adrianne Palicki, Josh Hutcherson, Isabel Lucas, and Josh Peck. The story centers on a group of youngsters dubbed “Wolverines,” who fight back against a Communist invasion on U.S. soil. We also reported back in March that the Communist enemy was changed from Chinese to North Korean, with the filmmakers digitally changing all of the Chinese flags to North Korean.
Red Dawn will square off against the Paramount comedy My Mother’s Curse and Pixar’s reck-It Ralph on November 2, 2012.
Red Dawn comes to theaters November 2nd, 2012 and stars Chris Hemsworth, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Adrianne Palicki, Josh Hutcherson, Isabel Lucas, Josh Peck, Brett Cullen, Matt Gerald. The film is directed by Dan Bradley. (Source)

Kristen Stewart is living an Aussie fairytale on the set of her new film, Snow White and the Huntsman. The 21-year-old, whose mother is an Australian, originally from Queensland, feels very at home with co-star Chris Hemsworth.
“I feel so incredibly comfortable around him. There is a very particular Aussie mentality and he has got it. He epitomises it,” Stewart told The Daily Telegraph.
“He’s really smart and he’s very impassioned, but he’s also really funny and light and kinda loud. His accent is funny. I can’t do it, I’m always trying to mimic him but I cannot do it!”
Snow White and the Huntsmana is a Lord of the Rings-style epic reimagining of the classic fairytale, in which Stewart’s Snow White is a warrior princess on a mission to take down the Evil Queen Ravena (Charlize Theron), with the help of Hemsworth’s Huntsman.
“I have an English accent in the film, that’s much easier for me for some reason. That Australian thing is tough,” Stewart said.
It is currently shooting in England and will be released in June 2012. (Source)
The official trailer for the upcoming film, Snow White and the Huntsman has been released! The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Sam Claflin and Kristen Stewart. Snow White and the Huntsman was directed by Rupert Sanders and hits theatres June 1, 2012.
While promoting the newest Twilight movie on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, Kristen Stewart was asked about her other upcoming film, Snow White and the Huntsman. Kristen went on to describe punching Chris Hemsworth in the face! (Poor Chris!) Take a look at what Kristen had to say:
“When they call action, it doesn’t matter how many times they’ve said watch this, be careful with this, don’t hit him in the face…”
Kristen grew animated in describing the accident, which was supposed to be a fake punch but ended up being anything but.
“It made such a sound. It spun him right around I was supposed to miss him by ‘this much’ it knocked him right out of his close up,” Kristen tells Jay. “I was down like this and he was over me ‘huntsmanning’ out and just really good contact. I could hear the camera guys go ‘whoa.’”
“I’m not proud though. Instantly tears sprung to my eyes. It will definitely be in the movie. He has a black eye and a big lump on his nose.”
