Watch: Lucasfilm's First Behind-the-Scenes Featurette for 'Red Tails'
"We're all in this together." Lucasfilm has debuted a new behind-the-scenes featurette for Red Tails, the Tuskegee Airman action-drama that we've seen plenty of trailers for already. The video features a fun look at the camaraderie between the actors playing the various military roles in the film. When you pull a bunch of guys together who are all committed and passionate about a project like Red Tails, you are bound to build life long bonds. The cast includes Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard, Ne-Yo, David Oyelowo, Method Man, Michael B. Jordan, Andre Royo, Tristan Wilds and Aml Ameen. Looks like they had a lot of fun making this.
Check out the new behind-the-scenes featurette for Anthony Hemingway's Red Tails, via YouTube:
The story of the Tuskegee Airmen, the first African-American pilots to fly in a combat squad during WWII.
Red Tails is directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Anthony Hemingway, making his feature directing debut after lots of TV work on HBO, including extended work as the first assistant director on "The Wire". The screenplay was written by John Ridley (Undercover Brother, "Barbershop", "The Wanda Sykes Show") from a screenstory credited to George Lucas. This was produced by Lucasfilm and Partnership Pictures, shot in Hawaii and California. Red Tails arrives in theaters January 20th, 2012 next year. Watch the full trailer!

I love the idea of this film, but the trailer I saw a while ago for it looked terrible. The cgi scenes on the planes was REALLY bad.

I think it's going to be great and wanted to say that before the usual barage of moronic trash comments by the Lucas haters begin.

Meth is in a film that isn't exclusively about weed (or drug related crime)? BLASPHEMY

OF COURSE there's "camaraderie" and "life long bonds"...it's a film starring a bunch of black dudes about a bunch of black dudes overcoming white dudes. They finally got a piece of the pie, and DEY LUVIN IT YO.

Being a Lucasfilm production, this movie will be different every time you watch it.
