Brought to us by Lucas Films and executive produced by George Lucas himself, RED TAILS gives the true story of the Tuskegee Airmen, a group of African American fighter pilots who served during World War II. RED TAILS is the first Lucas Films production not affiliated with STAR WARS or INDIANA JONES in almost twenty years! The film is directed by Anthony Hemingway, who has made a name for himself as a director on some of the raddest television shows today, including THE WIRE, THE CLOSER, FRINGE, TRUE BLOOD and COMMUNITY.
Starring Terrence Howard, Cuba Gooding Jr., Nate Parker, Ne-Yo, David Oyelowo and Bryan Cranston, RED TAILS is a thrilling visual feast that tells the story of courage and conviction in the face of devastating odds. With spectacular flight sequences and special effects, RED TAILS must be seen on the big screen to be truly experienced. (Meredith Borders)
"This story wasn't told back then, when it was happening, and it deserves to be told now."--Chris Hewitt, SAINT PAUL PIONEER PRESS
"If you like history served up as engaging entertainment, where the fact is mixed with the fiction and the spectacle with the emotion, strap yourself in, because "Red Tails" is one fun ride."--Randy Myers, CONTRA COSTA TIMES
"When Red Tails literally flies, as it often does, it soars. There are more grand aerial battles here than in any of Lucas's space operas."--Peter Howell, TORONTO STAR
