One of my favorite movies from the 80's and I've been waiting for someone to re-make this for a long time. I was hoping with todays special effects they could really make this into an awesome movie. So far I'm kinda on the fence after watching the trailer

Some interesting casting in the film:

Chris Hemsworth (Thor)
Josh Hutcherson (Peeta, Hunger Games)
Josh Peck (Nickelodeon's Drake & Josh)
Connor Cruise (Tom Cruise's son)

Why are you on the fence?

My reason for not being completely on board for now is that the original was such a great underdog story.
It didn't rely on special effects, I don't remember any big explosions, it just had a bunch of kids who were basically out of their league but held on against all odds.

This trailer? By making Hemsworth a marine and introducing a secret weapon that they must go after they change the premise of the story from the get go.
Other than that, the small town feel seems there and who knows, it might be surprisingly good.

I probably wasn't going to see it in the theatre anyways but definitely will check it out once it shows up on dvd.

Not hearing good things about this at all. Looks like a 2nd viewing of Avengers for me!
