How I Live Now = How Red Dawn Could Have Been Better Remade

One thing I never quite got about the original Red Dawn - these teens are living in the woods for months before seriously taking shit on, yet they never, ever think to make out with each other? Not even once?

Also, why not just stay in the woods longer? Well, there'd be no movie then. But that's why I dig the look of How I Live Now a bit more. It starts with romance in the woods - at least judging by the trailer - then World War III happens. I don't know from this who the bad guys are, and I don't care - the threat is tangible, unless they tell us late in the game that North Korea invaded Europe somehow, which I don't expect.

Saoirse Ronan is growing up fast. Watch after the jump and see what you think.
