    Default New WWII Movie

    Hello gents,

    I have just seen the first two trailers of "Red Tails", a January 2012 release from Lucasfilm. The film is based on true events concerning the black pilots who flew fighter escort missions in WWII. Although I am not expecting too much in the way of historical accuracy or top drawer acting performances, the trailers are evidence enough that this will be one worth watching. The aerial sequences in particular look quite spectacular. With Lucasfilm involved, the effects will be of the highest quality. The big screen experience could be very good.

    Regards,

    Carl

    Great, I look forward to seeing WWII aerial battles, my favorite thing in the world. I hope they do not rely too much on CGI, it has made director's lazy and ruined many promising films.

    Yes, as Nick says it is about the Tuskegee airmen. The actors were put through a boot camp whilst filming in the Czech Republic so hopefully they won't be too laid back and Hollwood casual...if you know what I mean (a la Pearl Harbour).

    Really Dave? That's super! Maybe a show near you today perhaps...?

    As for the CGI, as you said, there will be tons of it but hopefully it will add rather than detract from the experience.

    Regards,

    Looks like ahistorical claptrap to me. When I see 'inspired by historical events' I read it as 'bollocksed up by Hollywood historical events'.

    I agree with Glenn66. It's really sad to watch a well produced WW2 movie, and then historical facts is wrong in every or most ways.
