Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment present the remarkable story of an inspirational group of men whose legendary bravery was cemented in the sky in Red Tails, now soaring onto Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital Download at retailers near you.
Red Tails stars Academy Award® Winner Cuba Gooding Jr.* (Jerry Maguire) and Academy Award Nominee Terrence Howard** (Hustle & Flow) leading a powerful ensemble cast in this high-flying epic inspired by the real-life adventures of the first African-American combat unit to serve in World War II.
Set in Italy, 1944. As the war takes its toll on Allied forces in Europe, a squadron of black pilots known as the Tuskegee Airmen are finally given the chance to prove themselves in the sky… even as they battle discrimination on the ground. Featuring jaw-dropping aerial action and thrilling special effects, Red Tails is a breathtaking tribute to the unsung heroes who rose above extraordinary challenges and ultimately soared into history.

Jordon (Chronicle), Leslie Odom, Jr. (“Smash”), Marcus T. Paulk (Take the Lead), Kevin Philips (Pride), Andre Royo (“The Wire”), Daniela Ruah (“NCIS: Los Angeles”), Gerald McRaney (“Major Dad”), Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”). The film was produced by Rick McCallum and Charles Floyd Johnson and written by John Ridley and Aaron McGruder.
We recently received a copy of Red Tails to check out and this is an amazing and action packed historical drama. The cast does a great job and the effects are great. I also liked that they showed the heroes as real people with normal faults and not perfect. I would have liked to see a little more about some of them and their stories, but still a great film and one you’ll want to check out.
The Red Tails Blu-ray™ is loaded with special features including the documentary Double Victory along with profiles of the filmmakers and behind-the-scenes featurettes. The Blu-ray™ and DVD are now available for an average retail price of $25.00 and $20.00 respectively at retailers and you can order from Amazon here. Be sure to check out all of the great special features!
