The George Lucas produced, Anthony Hemingway directed epic World War II movie about the true story of the brave Tuskegee airmen- RED TAILS- starring Terrence Howard and Cuba Gooding Jr., and featuring some incredible effects work from ILM, finally arrives in American cinemas this month, having received its star-studded New York premiere at the Ziegfeld theatre on January 10th. Annoyingly, there is no UK release date yet for the film-my guess it'll be March time, probably after the 3-D release of THE PHANTOM MENACE in February...

Beyond STAR WARS, lets hope we also get to see a lot more LUCASFILM original productions like this in the foreseeable future, both as potential franchises like Indiana Jones and one-off innovative comedy and drama.
