Check our video player below and see the first trailer from George Lucas’s “Red Tails.” Three years or more in the making, the story of the Tuskegee Airmen comes to theaters on January 20, 2012. It’s a strange date–unless Lucas gives the film a one week tryout in December for Oscar eligibility. Otherwise, January will be filled with Oscar contenders and B movies. Which category is he saying this falls in? “Red Tails” stars Terrence Howard and Cuba Gooding, Jr. The former, at least from the trailer, has a lot of speeches. The aerial stuff looks great, though. And maybe this is what we’ll need on January 20th, after “One Life to Live” airs its last show and the State of the Union address is given. Most of Hollywood will be at Sundance anyway.
