Red Dawn

With Marvel firmly at Disney and DC firmly at Warner Bros., the odds of ever seeing Thor and Wonder Woman in a movie together are slim to none. So here's a compromise: "Red Dawn," the upcoming action movie remake starring the God of Thunder himself, Chris Hemsworth, and the woman who was nearly the small screen's new Wonder Woman, Adrianne Palicki.

MTV News has an exclusive clip from the "Red Dawn" remake featuring Hemsworth and Palicki's characters meeting for the first time. As is befitting two of Hollywood's finest specimens, the chemistry between Hemsworth and Palicki is practically palpable, making it all the more believable when a young Josh Hutcherson more or less swoons when the "Friday Night Lights" actress comes calling for a pair of French fries.

See the clip below!

It's hard when you're the original G.I. Joe and you've got all these young kids with their exploding motorcycles and cliff-side ninja fits to compete with. Bruce Willis knows the feeling.

MTV News caught up with the action legend as part of our Summer Movie Preview, and Willis had nothing but kind things to say about his younger co-stars.

But he does give credit where credit is due. In "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," Willis plays the Joe who was there when it all began, Original Joe. "Joe Colton is actually the original G.I. Joe," Willis said. "In the story, he started the outfit a long time ago, and that outfit are kids compared to us."

Don't think that "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" is going to only be about the action. The upcoming action flick directed by Jon M. Chu is also going to have its fair share of romance, thanks to the inclusion of the characters Flint and Lady Jaye.

For those fans familiar with the series, Flint and Lady Jaye are two Joes who become close while in the same unit. At one point, G.I. Joe disbands, and the two end up getting married. They later rejoin the Joes when the organization is rebuilt, and their marriage is said to have a good effect on both of them.

While there might not be a marriage in this film, actors D.J. Cotrona and Adrianne Palicki -- who play Flint and Jaye in "Retaliation" -- promise there will be some sparks flying between their two characters.

Adrianne PalickiThe search is over, folks: Adrianne Palicki is our new Wonder Woman.

After a topsy-turvy development period—one that still isn't over, mind you—the DC Comics television revival has found its leading lady in the form of Palicki. There's no doubt that her casting is a major coup for the "Friday Night Lights" alumnus and her fans, and it certainly takes the sting out of the cancellation of "Lone Star," the criminally under-viewed Fox series she co-starred in.

While "Wonder Woman" is Palicki's highest profile role to date, there's little question about where she got her start: the fantastic football drama "Friday Night Lights," which has proven to be a breeding ground for excellent up-and-comers. Don't believe us? Just click past the jump and check out some of the other "FNL" vets who've gone on to big things.

Josh PeckHow awesome is it that we're getting a remake of "Red Dawn"? Seriously. Put aside your kneejerk -- and very natural -- prejudice against the rising number of remakes and just think about that for a second. The original served up an alternate-present 1980s in which Cold War-era Soviet forces invade America. A group of Midwestern teenagers take up arms against the aggressors, operating under the name of their high school football team, Wolverines. Included in this group are stars Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen and C. Thomas Howell. Damn. Straight.

How is an idea like that not screaming for a remake? It's already been confirmed that "Thor" and "Star Trek" star Chris Hemsworth will be stepping into Swayze's Jed Eckert role. Now The Hollywood Reporter reveals that "The Wackness" star Josh Peck and "Friday Night Lights" star Adrianne Palicki have also joined the cast. Read More...
