    I don't know where IMDb got that info, but it hasn't even got a distributor in the U.S. as yet. They got it right for the Australian release date though - it was 2nd September. Also it's coming out on DVD here in Australia on 30th December. You can pre-order it online, and they do have international shipping, only thing is the DVD is region code 4 so will only play on region 4 DVD players (Region 4 - Australia, New Zealand, Oceania, Central and South America, Caribbean, Mexico) unless you've got a region free DVD player. That's the only way you'll get to see it for the foreseeable future. Can't work out why the US hasn't picked this up yet - other countries have. Here's the Australian facebook fan page if you want to find out more about the movie or DVD:

    Tomorrow, When the War Began is probably one of the most loved Australian books. Most Aussies read it in school, it has a number of those moral and ethical themes that schools love you to discuss and write essay's about. The novel was released in 1993.

    I can't speak to what inspired John Marsden (Red Dawn may have been his inspiration), but he did write a novel that was in strong contrast to Red Dawn. Most of the elements that make up Red Dawn are not present in Tomorrow (aside from the invasion theme).

    Where Red Dawn is more of a macho American style fight back movie, Tomorrow is more about how everyone's lives are destroyed and the moral implications of being forced to kill to survivie.

    I personally love the 1984 Red Dawn, but I think Tomorrow is a better story. I haven't seen the new Red Dawn, but from reports it's pretty bad.

    It should also be noted that the new Red Dawn was conceived as a movie after Tomorrow was announced. I'd imagine some American producer saying "Oh Invasion movies are back hey, well lets remake the best one we've got" ...

    For reference, it's popular for people to say that Tomorrow is Red Dawn for teen girls. I don't agree, but that's not uncommon to hear.
