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 agree. I just had a class

I agree. I just had a class in film and one of my Black professors was telling me about the real issues in Hollywood today....The next generation (the people I mentioned) are just not getting the opportunities that Will Smith and Denzel Washington had. That's not because any of these actors aren't capable of pulling off a "Malcolm X" or a "Philadelphia," of course. It's because they're not given the chance. Anthony Mackie has one of the more substantive studio roles for a younger black actor in a while as Matt Damon's guardian angel in "The Adjustment Bureau." But it's hardly the role of a lifetime. Anthony also said this to a magazine which sums it up.... "It's frustrating that the movies I want to make I haven't been able to make," Mackie told 24 Frames. Orlando Bloom was given 15 opportunities after 'Lord of the Rings.' Black men are given no opportunities." It's all about opportunities.

FYI, no one "gave" Will Smith

FYI, no one "gave" Will Smith an opportunity. He and his partner opened the Overbrook production company and he gave himself the lead for every movie they produced. Ali, I Robot, Pursuit of Happyness, Hitch and the list goes on... Since Wild Wild West, name it and he has produced it. You can't wait for others to "see the light", sometimes you must create your own opportunities.

BLACK ACTORS LIKE DUANE

BLACK ACTORS LIKE DUANE MARTIN HAVE STARTED THEIR OWN PRODUCTION COMPANIES AND ARE PUTTING OUT THEIR OWN MOVIES THE PROBLEM WITH THAT IS THEY ARE RELEASED INDEPENDENT AND MOST FOLKS DONT KNOW ABOUT THEM TILL THEY SEE THEM ON BET ONE SATURDAY ALL OF A SUDDEN AND MOST FILM WATCHERS ARE TO LAZY TO SEARCH THEY WANT THE MOVIES TO COME TO THEM WHICH IS OK BUT WE NEED TO SUPPORT MORE AND BLACK HOLLYWOOD NEEDS TO BE POOLING THEIR MONEY AND MAKING THEIR OWN

I like that list! I'm going

I like that list! I'm going to add Viola Davis. And after watching the Benjamin Button movie, I've changed my mind about Taraji P. Henson. She has the potential to be really good if she would pick better roles, but then again it all relates back to having good roles available for Black actresses.

Viola is AMAZING. She will

Viola is AMAZING. She will get her due in The HELP. I just love these people on my list. Such great talent and they all have worked with diverse stories. Taraji P. Henson...I agree with you 100%. You're so right. It's really about getting great roles. And having them written. The scarcity of black roles in 2011 is partly a function of fewer movies being made, and certainly fewer serious-minded movies at the studios.

You are very ignorant! "We

You are very ignorant! "We back people don't do war, that's for them" You obviously need a history lesson. By the way, the story of the Tuskegee Airmen is a true story, so how about you google it and educate yourself. Also, I am a black man, currently active duty military, have been on the front line along with numbers of other black men and women. Black people have been fighting in wars for years, and the outcome is the very freedom that you have today!

This is why I have been

This is why I have been waiting for this movie for over ten years. That is how long this movie has been kicked around in Hollywood. George had to finally do it himself after he was through with the Star Wars series. It is time to educate all people in this country, not just our own. If you look at the military channel's documentaries about the second or even the first World War, you never see the contributions of Black men in the war unless they are talking about footnotes of how the supplies arrived to the front lines. My father served under General Davis and he told me he was the most intimidating person he ever confronted in the military. And he (my father), punched out his drill instructor the first day of boot camp.

And another thing -- The

And another thing -- The Tuskegee Airmen were REAL, TRUE. So what the hell are you talking about "we black pp don't do war". In the worlds of Louis Farrakan - "The black man has fought in all the wars!!!!!!!!!" So go somewhere are read up on some black history moron.
