In the 1984 Movie "Red Dawn" Russia's Soviet Union, along with Cuban and Central American Troops, cut the United States in half and launch a six year war to destroy the US form within.
in the remake China launches such a war, with the help of Africans and other national aligned with China.
The movie is in the can, complete.
Yet the bad guy has been changed to a very unlikely scenario of the invading force being North Korean.
MGM, worried about offending China, took the extraordinary step of switching the bad guys in its remake of the 1980s movie "Red Dawn" from Chinese to North Korean after the film was already done. Through digital technology, the invading forces are no longer Chinese. Flags were switched. Dialogue altered. "The changes illustrate just how much sway China's government has in the global entertainment industry, even without uttering a word of official protest," reports the Los Angeles Times. Scary.
