Watch: First Trailer for George Lucas Produced WWII Film 'Red Tails'
"We fight! We fight! We fight!" Lucasfilm has debuted the first official trailer for Red Tails, the upcoming WWII drama about the Tuskegee Airmen, the first African-American pilots to fly in a combat squad during World War II. Directed by first-timer Anthony Hemingway, the film stars Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard, Ne-Yo, Bryan Cranston and many others. Despite hearing about Lucas himself doing reshoots, this actually looks surprisingly good, like a strong WWII drama mixed with some fantastic aerial combat scenes, which is always exciting especially when ILM is involved. This looks fantastic, I'm totally in. Enjoy!
