Second teaser that the internet is about to go batshit crazy for the next few days. My only question is where the hell is Billy Dee Williams?

[video] Red Tails (Lucasfilm Official Trailer)

This trailer has sparked alot of negative comments on Youtube and goes to show you even with a black president we have a very long way to go with racism.

1944. World War II rages and the fate of the free world hangs in the balance. Meanwhile the black pilots of the experimental Tuskegee training program are courageously waging two wars at once — one against enemies overseas, and the other against discrimination within the military and back home. Racial prejudices have long held ace airman Martin “Easy” Julian (Nate Parker) and his black pilots back at base — leaving them with little to do but further hone their flying skills — while their white counterparts are shipped out to combat after a mere three months of training. Mistakenly deemed inferior and assigned only second-rate planes and missions, the pilots of Tuskegee have mastered the skies with ease but have not been granted the opportunity to truly spread their wings. Until now.

LucasFilm Never Paid the First Darth Vader! Claims ‘No-Profit’

David Prowse, the English actor who played (but didn’t voice) Darth Vader in the first three Star Wars, recently told Equity Magazine that he has yet to receive any of the residuals he’s owed for Return of the Jedi… because LucasFilm claims the film hasn’t made a profit.

“I get these occasional letters from Lucasfilm saying that we regret to inform you that as Return of the Jedi has never gone into profit, we’ve got nothing to send you.” [TimesOnline]

Meanwhile, Box Office Mojo puts the lifetime take at $475 million, not including the $88 million it made upon re-release in 1997.  With a production budget of $32.5 million.  LucasFilm is able to get away with it because Prowse’s deal, like most actors, was for net profit, rather than gross.  As a /Film commenter points out…

“Unfortunately, Mr. Prowse relates what is almost universally the case with a net profit clause. Studios almost never pay on this clause, as they claim nearly any and every expense possible to keep the film from showing any actual profit. Very few films have ever shown a net profit on the books.”

So, as you might expect.  Though claiming you have expenses that account for $539.5 million (not including merchandising) is still pretty ballsy.  George Lucas could buy a petting zoo for his “friends” every day of the week and still have plenty left over for racecar beds and rare breeds of cats to eat, not to mention the vat of singles to get greased up and roll around in for the kids to peel off when they need candy money.  Don’t tell me I don’t know how this Hollywood stuff works.

Lucas has expressed his aim with the new production.

“I’ve been wanting to do Red Tails for 20 years, and we’ve finally got the means to showcase the skill of the Tuskegee pilots,” Lucas said in a press release. “We’re working on techniques which will give us the first true look at the aerial dogfighting of the era. And our top-notch cast will really make this story special.” (MTV Movie Blog)

The film will take place around the height of World War II. Continue reading

George Lucas is convinced he has more Star Wars treats in his bag and he has decided to illustrate his stories and use the Time Warner machine to distribute his foray into animation.  Warner Bros. will be releasing “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” in theaters August 15 and trickle down to cable TV.  Time Warner networks TNT and Cartoon Network will be running the spinoff series.  The time period between “Attack of the Clone” and “Revenge of the Sith” will be the focus of the cartoon and guest appearances can be expected by Anakin Skywalker, Padme Amidala, Obi-Wan Kenobi, General Grievous.  New character developments like Ahsoka, Annakin’s padawan who bears a striking resemblance to an Egyptian, will also be introduced.  Although initially geared towards a younger audience the developers are counting on die hard Star Wars fans to tune in and follow the storyline.   

 

“An animated series always appeals more to a younger audience,” said director Dave Filoni. “But at the same time, we’ve tried to do some sophisticated things and ensure that we are going to satisfy the broad spectrum of ‘Star Wars’ fans.”
