MOVIE FAB: Method Man, Terrence Howard, Cuba Gooding Jr. & Tristan Wilds Star In "Red Tails" (Trailer)

​ ​ ​ ​

Some of Hollywood's leading YBF actors have teamed up to star in the new film Red Tails about Tuskegee airmen during World War II. Watch the trailer and see Ne-Yo, Tristan Wilds, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Terrence Howard in action inside...

 

Many of Hollywood's leading (and best looking) actors are starring in the much talked about Red Tails, a film set in 1944 during World War II about the Tuskegee Airmen. And our homie Wilson over at BlackFilm.com got the latest scoop.

The film, directed by powerhouse George Lucas (who is funding this out of his own pockets), touches on the two wars at once – one against enemies overseas, and the other against discrimination within the military and back home.

 

The cast stars: 

Tristan Wilds


 

Terrence Howard

Ne-Yo - When talking about the film Ne-Yo said,

"I am personally waiting on ‘Red Tails’. ‘Red Tails’ is George Lucas’s film about the Tuskegee airmen. I play one of the fighter pilots by the name of Andrew Salem, aka Smoky. And he’s from Alabama. I had to develop a really thick Alabama accent. He chews tobacco. It’s really, really, really a character role.

I actually shot that before I shot this, which is odd. But I mean George Lucas pulled money out of his pocket to pay for this film. So this is his baby. So the one thing that I do about George, I don’t know a lot about him, but the one thing I do know is that it’s not going to come out until it’s absolutely right."

Nate Parker


 

Michael B. Jordan

Marcus T. Paulk


 

Leslie Odom Jr.


 

Kevin Phillips

Elijah Kelley


 

David Oyelowo

Cuba Gooding Jr. - When speaking about the film Cuba said,    

"I’ve seen the movie, I’ve seen the special effects, and I can’t tell you how excited I am about that movie and for people to see it. In my career I’ve done a couple of movies that blown up the zeitgeist of cinema and hit social consciousness, like ‘Boyz N The Hood’ or ‘Men Of Honor’ or ‘Jerry Maguire.’ These are movies where people are affected by either a scenario or scene or environment they’ve never been exposed to, or it just hits them and in their everyday life they can identify with.

We actors live for that, and we’ve done that again with George Lucas’ ‘Red Tails.’ The movie is breathtaking, and the thing about it is, visually you haven’t seen the things that George is doing with these fighter sequences. It’s insane. The real people we portray, like my character Major Emanuelle Stance. He took these young black men out of the schools of Tuskegee, Alabama and into the Air Force Base in Italy and turned them into warriors. You fall in love with not just the pilots but these men that helped them along their journey."

 

 

Cliff Smith aka Method Man

 

Singer Jazmine Sullivan also appears in the film.

I'm so glad they are making

I'm so glad they are making more movies about the Tuskegee Airmen. There are still living Tuskegee Airmen and I'm sure they are happy their stories are being told. I will be going to support this movie for sure!

I've always loved these types

I've always loved these types of movies. I remember when "Tuskegee Airmen", the one staring Laurence Fishburne came out years ago. Now that I think about it... Cuba Gooding was in that one too. Maybe that is why he got that role? I'm sure I will love this one too.

Great cast!! I will

Great cast!! I will definitely be watching this as well as The Help. I don't know why everyone is bashing The Help. It was an excellent book (read it in 2 1/2 days..definitely a page turner) and the cast of the movie is pretty great as well. I will be supporting both films.

TERRANCE HOWARD MUST BE HARD

TERRANCE HOWARD MUST BE HARD UP FOR CASH. WHENEVER HE’S ON A ‘BLACK’ SET HE MAKES THE OTHER BLACK CAST MEMBERS FEEL AS IF THEY SHOULD FEEL PRIVILEGED THAT HE’S IN A MOVIE WITH THEM. LIKE HE’S DOING THEM A FAVOR. NOW, WHEN HE’S ON THE WHITE MANS SET, HE LOVE TO KISS WHITE A$$..........THIS IS A KNOWN FACT!!!!!

Yep, yep, I heard the same.

Yep, yep, I heard the same. He kissed Jodie Foster's ass when they made a movie together. The night president Obama was elected president, Terrance Howard was so angry that he made racists comments to his white guests. Cuba Gooding ain't no better. Love kissing whitey's ass.

That would be my question.

That would be my question. Terence has been in a plethora of black films. If he were that stuck up I would think he would turn them down.

It was good for George Lucas

It was good for George Lucas to fund the film. I think this will be a great movie. I wish Don Cheadle and Chiwetel Ejiofor could have been a part of this. As far as Box office numbers, we just have to wait and see. Also I do not know why people are critical of The Help. It is a very good book and it tells a very good story that really has not been told of just how important The Help was, and how screwed up the ppl they worked for were. People just look at "Black Maids" and get all up in arms without paying attention to the message.

Natasha mentioned that

Natasha mentioned that (Philly's own) Jazmine Sullivan was in it. Obviously, the women's roles are smaller. I've got to believe for the number of males in this movie, there has to be black mothers and wives as well.

I completely agree with

I completely agree with whoever wrote this...YOU BETTER PREACH!!! Had to repost just in case he/she didn't see it. Furious you have to be the biggest Debbie Downer that I have ever seen. I have been a YBF visitor for quite some time now and your opinions are consistently negative and brash, which is the total opposite of how you attempt to present yourself. I have seen you refer to your "faves" as uplifting, positive, and empowering, which is obviously something you admire, yet your tone and demeanor are so distasteful compared to the qualities you support. Instead of coming here everyday to rant about what you absolutely hate and how this person isn't on the same level as this person, maybe you should start with yourself. This "progressive" attitude you throw around with your fave celebrities is completly contradicting to the way you interact on various threads, which makes you a distasteful and unfortunate internet bully. I enjoy reading the thoughts of others, but not when it is consistenly forced day after day on others. I have YET to see you root for ANY underdog...You bash Kelly Rowland, Ciara, Mashonda, the list goes on, to uplift your "progressive" women, such as Beyonce (who I want dispute with), Rihanna, and Alicia Keys. I saw how you continuously compared Kelly Rowland to Rihanna on one thread, where you ran a list of her accolades compared to that of Kelly's. What you fell to realize (possibly because you're young) is that Rihanna once herself was an underdog that took years and three albums to get to where she is today. Those fancy magazine covers, sold out concerts, expensive threads, and high end endorsements you speak so highly of were once a dream...because she TOO was an underdog. I have never seen someone who in one breath talk about uplifting women but in the next bash any and everybody. I just wish you would take some of that intelligence and articulation and use it in the way you admire your fave celebrities, instead of using it to spew hatred.
