WWII fighter pilots go to battle — and obliterate a train — in the new video
A seven-minute video hyping LucasFilms' "Red Tails" movie, executive produced by George Lucas, has hit the Web — and it's a rush (see below).
Collecting scenes from various points in Anthony Hemingway's action-drama, the adrenaline-packed video is filled with aerial stunts and other clips from the movie, which is inspired by true events. It also features appearances by a pipe-toting Cuba Gooding, Jr.; a very serious Terrence Howard; and a Southern-drawling Bryan Cranston.
The clip starts with Tuskegee Airmen — black members of the U.S. military who served during World War II — obliterating a train. There are more action sequences, interspersed by narrative scenes that provide background information about the plot.
"Red Tails" is due in theaters Jan. 20.
