Lost in Previews: Red Tails

If you like fighter planes and history, Red Tailsis the movie for you.  The film tells the story of the Tuskegee airmen, the all African-American fighter pilot team that operated during World War II.   There looks to be some impressive dog fight scenes, of course, they are CGI.  The film stars Bryan Cranston, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Terrence Howard, Brandon T. Jackson, David Oyelowo, Nate Parker, Method Man, Ne-Yo, and Gerald McRaney.  The film also has a production credit for George Lucas.

“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.”

Red Tails is in theatres January 20, 2012.
