Please support this movie. As powerful as George Lucas is, he couldn't even get financing from Hollywood and had to do it with his own money.

Speaks volumes to the way Hollywood studios really feel.
The "Red Tails" producer said on "The Daily Show" Monday, "I showed it to all of them and they said 'No. We don't know how to market a movie like this.' "

heard this last night. so sad.

It's a shame some of our black 'celebrities' didn't attempt to provide the funding.

That was a good interview. I originally wasn't going to see it, but after seeing the interview and finding out how he couldn't get financing (and the reasoning etc) I will definitely be supporting it!

I saw Red Tails this morning and it was phenomenal! I am telling everyone I know to see this movie. I read a story online that Lucas tried to get this movie made for years but could not get support to make it from Hollywood studios. Please get the word out and support Red Tails.
