I don’t care that it’s been slotted in the Hollywood Graveyard of January. I want to see Red Tails. Hot damn, I’d pay to see it now. Like, right NOW!
What? Me? A WWII junkie? Preposterous!
Anyway, if I could pick a movie to see right now — chosen from the entire upcoming six months — this would be it. It’s Friday, and I’m in a rat-tat-tat-tat, screeeeee-whoosh-roar mood.
Official Synopsis: “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.”
They have no official website which I could find but they’re already on Twitter (@RedTailsMovie) and Facebook (facebook.com/RedTails). So, you might want to lock those coordinates in and prepare for take-off. We’re going in and we’re going in full throttle…
