“How do you like that, Mister Hitler?”
iTunes Trailers has debuted a third trailer for Anthony Hemingway’s Red Tails, the forthcoming WWII action-drama from George Lucas’ production company LucasFilm. You may know them from such films as Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Howard the Duck. There’s also a brand new poster for the film below.
Synopsis: 1944. As the war in Europe continues to take its toll on Allied forces, the Pentagon brass has no recourse but to consider unorthodox options – including the untried and untested African-American pilots of the experimental Tuskegee training program. Just as the young Tuskegee men are on the brink of being shut down and shipped back home, they are given the ultimate chance to show their courage. Against all the odds, with something to prove and everything to lose, these intrepid young airmen take to the skies to fight for their country – and the fate of the free world.
This most recent trailer seems to amp up the melodrama, so let’s home this doesn’t get too “Lucasy” before it hits screens next year.
Red Tails is released on 20 January 2012 in the US. It does not currently have an Australian release date.
