A remake of the 1984 movie “Red Dawn” is scheduled to hit theaters in November.

The plot of the remake revolves around a Chi-Com invasion of the United States, and much of it is being shot here in Michigan.

In the film, invaders put up propaganda posters to tell Americans that hey, we’re on your side.

Here are some pictures of those posters taken on the set of the movie:

Nice to see Shepard Fairey was able to find more work.

More from a video of a walk around the movie set:

And look, the invading Chi-Coms even have food police, just like… oh, nevermind:

That one made Michael Bloomberg’s trousers flutter.

Something tells me that I’ve seen this movie before, but I just can’t put my finger on it.

China is reported to be unhappy with the plot of the movie — as are some Americans for that matter — because of the way the script portrays the Chinese people and alleged American paranoia toward same.

Maybe we can alleviate these fears by pointing out that there’s a good possiblity that this movie — though the Chinese are the convenient metaphorical “villians” that appear on the screen — doesn’t really have anything to do with China. I’ve even read that in the movie a willing accomplice of the invaders is a member or members of the U.S. media. Yeah, I know.

Update: For those of you saying “Wolverines!” in comments, I’m a Michigan State fan, so I’m afraid I’d be stripped of my tickets if I joined in.
