Here's another movie that may be Oscar bait come awards season. Producer George Lucas (Star Wars, Indiana Jones) has teamed with director Anthony Hemingway (whose previous credits run the gamut of TV shows including the popular "Treme" series) to tell the story of the Tuskegee Airmen, the first African-American pilots to fly in combat during World War II. Terrence Howard, Cuba Gooding, Jr. and Bryan Cranston lead a troop of heroes played by the likes of Michael B. Jordan, Tristan Wilds and R&B singer Ne-yo (???). Check out the first trailer below. Red Tails hits theaters next year.
P.S. How great is it to see Cuba Gooding Jr. in a real movie? Winning.
