1944. As the war in Europe continues to take its toll on Allied forces, the Pentagon brass has no recourse but to consider unorthodox options – including the untried and untested African-American pilots of the experimental Tuskegee training program. Just as the young Tuskegee men are on the brink of being shut down and shipped back home, they are given the ultimate chance to show their courage. Against all the odds, with something to prove and everything to lose, these intrepid young airmen take to the skies to fight for their country – and the fate of the free world.

The stars of Red Tails are burly combat heroes filled with an equal amount of pride and bluster. Briefed on the intense military trainings of the Tuskegee Airmen, such handsome and able-bodied Hollywood actors as Nate Parker, Tristan Wilds, Ne-Yo, Elijah Kelly, Method Man and David Oyelowo are prepared to enter hostile, enemy territories in defense of our nation.

Red Tails Stars Talk George Lucas, Flying Lessons And The Moms Who Watched Their Backs
There have been more than a few rappers that have made their way into the film world. Just off the top of my head I can think of Ice Cube, Ludicris, Eminem, LL Cool J, 50 Cent, Method Man, Heavy D, Mos Def, Will Smith, Mark Wahlberg, Ice T, Snoop Dogg... honestly this list could go on for a long time. One of the more recent entries in this field is Ne-Yo...
Instead of directing space epics, Lucas will go the route of Francis Ford Coppola, making small and intimate films that pretty much no one will want to see. I’m kidding. Lucas’ THX 1138 is interesting, but if we’re being honest, that came out nearly 41 years ago.

George Lucas Announces Retirement From Blockbusters, Defends Nuking The Fridge
God must be in a terrible mood because Tim Tebow lost yesterday, so we’ll be doing our best around here to put the big guy back in a better frame of mind. I’m just assuming He’s a regular reader and all. This week Soderbergh gets a little haywire, the Tuskegee airmen take to the sky and the underworld gets another visit

This Rotten Week: Predicting Haywire, Red Tails And Underworld: Awakening Reviews
I get angry at LucasFilm a lot because of what they've done to the Star Wars franchise, but this really is an awesome poster. While it does serve as an advertisement for the movie - it has the required title and release date - the entire thing looks as though it was done just for fun, and it's full of pulpy goodness.

New Comic Poster For Red Tails Is Made Of Sheer Awesomeness
This new feature shows how cast members Michael B. Jordan, Tristan Wilds, Andre Royo, David Oyelowo and Method Man, among others, formed a band of brothers while filming with Hemingway. It’s short, but one of the actors calls it “six degrees of Black Hollywood” (which I love), and there a George Lucas sighting (he produced the film) right around the 38-second mark.

Red Tails Teases Band Of Brotherhood In Behind-The-Scenes Feature
Thanks to a handful of delays and, if I’m being honest, George Lucas’s involvement as a producer, my expectations for the Tuskegee Airmen drama Red Tails were tempered. Yes, director Anthony Hemingway cut his teeth on episodes of The Wire, CSI: N.Y. and Treme, but the January release date was a warning, not an endorsement.

George Lucas-Produced Red Tails Gets Kick Ass New Trailer, Poster
In a trailer that's operating with such broad strokes, it's hard to get a sense of the movie that might actually lie within. From what we've seen here I'm afraid this is one of those movies about a historic event that consists of people standing around and talking about how historic it is
