He made an awesome trailer at the very least.

The trailer for the  George Lucas-produced Red Tails opens with World War II fighter pilots getting shredded. Which looks pretty spectacular, I have to say. That’s where Terrence Howard and the Tuskegee Airmen come in. The legendary group of African-American combat pilots fight through red tape in order to escort bombers to their targets.

The real star of the trailer are the visual effects, but it seems like they did the Airmen’s story justice as well. It’s directed by Anthony Hamilton (The Wire, Treme) and stars Howard, NeYo, Andre Royo, Nate Parker, David Oyelowo, Cuba Gooding Jr., Bryan Cranston, and Method Man to name a few. If only they had cast Chris Rock to humorously point out the different ways in which white people and black people fly.

George Lucas doesn’t just make films about wars in space. He also makes films about wars on boring ol’ Earth. However, many folks were wondering what happened to Red Tails, about a real group of black pilots in WWII called the Tuskegee Airmen. The film has been MIA for sometime, with rumors that Lucas shot down director Anthony Hemingway and writer John Ridley due to creative differences, then reshot parts of the movie himself.

However, from the burning wreckage – a tweet. Hemingway took to the Twitters, saying Red Tails would be released January 2012. He is the director, so that’s a pretty official source, but single tweets aren’t exactly The New York Times, so I’m remaining cautious. Or to put it another way, this might be “a trap.”

The film’s cast includes Terrence Howard, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Ne-Yo. In a related story, remember Cuba Gooding Jr.? (Twitter)
