“Red Tails” flew into theaters on Friday, as the George Lucas-produced film about the Tuskegee Airmen earned $6 million at the box office. Red Tails, directed by Anthony Hemingway and starring Terrence Howard, Nate Parker, Cuba Gooding Jr. and more, took home $19.1 million dollars over the weekend. The number one spot went to Underworld: Awakening with $25.4 million. Coincidentally enough, Lucas said in an interview with the NY times recently that $20 million was what they were aiming for to prove that this sort of project could work. “If we can get over $20 million in our first weekend, we’re kind of in the game. We’re in The Help category,” he said. “If it gets $30 (million) in the first weekend, then those guys get to make their movies without even thinking about it.”
