Red Tails: President Obama welcomes Cast and host Red Tails Screening (video)

We must all make an effort to go to the movies and see Red Tails.  It’s Executive Producer George Lucas has succeeded at making this movie against all hollywood odds.  While it took him twenty years and his personal fortune to achieve the goal of recognizing these brave soilders, lets do our part and support it by purchasing a ticket at theaters on january 20,2012 and supporting it.
Lucas invested a total of $93 million of his own money–$58 million to make the movie and $35 million to distribute it–banking on it being a box office hit. Should it fail, Lucas told USA Today, the repercussions would be felt in Black Hollywood for along time to come. “”I realize that by accident I’ve now put the black film community at risk [with Red Tails, whose $58 million budget far exceeds typical all-black productions],” he said. “I’m saying, if this doesn’t work, there’s a good chance you’ll stay where you are for quite a while. It’ll be harder for you guys to break out of that [lower-budget] mold. But if I can break through with this movie, then hopefully there will be someone else out there saying let’s make a prequel and sequel, and soon you have more Tyler Perrys out there.”

Our president took the time out of his busy schedule to host the cast in the White House and here is a glimpse (7 minute) preview of what you are in when it opens in theaters nationwide on January 20, 2012.
