If you like your war dramas flashy and blunt, Red Tails looks to fit the bill. From executive producer George Lucas, the latest trailer for the WII fighter pilot actioner is chock-full of cheesy one-liners and air battles that wouldn’t be out of place in a videogame. Expectations have certainly been reduced for Anthony Hemingway’s feature, but here is hoping things move fast enough to entertain.
Bryan Cranston, who seems to be appearing in every single major film nowadays, is shown off a bit more in the cast including Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard, David Oyelowo, Kevin Phillips, Nate Parker, Daniela Ruah, Michael B. Jordan, Tristan Wilds, Cliff Smith and Rick Otto. After trailer #1 and #2, one can see the latest below via Apple, as well as a new poster.
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.
Red Tails hits theaters January 20th.
