Legendary filmmaker George Lucas is bringing his passion project Red Tails to EAA AirVenture for a one-night screening on Wednesday, July 25, at the Fly-In Theater presented by Ford.

The film features an extraordinary cast, which includes Terrence Howard (Hustle & Flow), Cuba Gooding Jr. (Jerry Maguire), David Oyelowo (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Nate Parker (The Secret Life of Bees), Elijah Kelley (Hairspray), Tristan Wilds (90210), Method Man (The Wire), Ne-Yo (Stomp the Yard), Michael B. Jordon (Chronicle), Leslie Odom Jr. (Smash), Marcus T. Paulk (Take the Lead), Kevin Philips (Pride), Andre Royo (The Wire), Daniela Ruah (NCIS: Los Angeles), Gerald McRaney (Major Dad), and Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad).
The Red Tails DVD will be on sale in all EAA stores. Attendees who purchase the high-octane action-adventure will have a chance to win an exclusive Red Tails poster autographed by the cast of Red Tails.
