Red Tails Premiering January 20
It was directed by Anthony Hemingway with a script from John Ridley and Aaron McGruder (yes of Boondocks fame) and stars Oscar award winner Cuba Gooding Jr. and Terrence Howard. It's based on the story of the Tuskegee Airmen who fought the enemy in the skies over World War II Europe and prejudice and bigotry in the military and at home .
The Red Tails title refers to the tail insignia of the 99th Pursuit Squadron, which painted the tails of its aircraft bright red.
The movie will hit your local multiplexes on January 20 and I'm definitely planning on being there buttered popcorn in hand to watch it.
