Black Tails A Hit!

Thanks to everyone who made our Red Tails Weekend our most successful events since we started using Meetup for field trips. Over 80 African-American movie lovers participated. And remember you can still send in your Red Tails ticket stub for a chance to win the Tuskeegee Airmen Blu-ray.

Red Tails cruised in to second place with a very respectable $19.1 million. That’s above comparable fighter pilot movies Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow ($15.6 million), Stealth ($13.3 million), and Flyboys ($6 million), though it was about even with Sky Captain in estimated attendance. The audience breakdown was 51 percent male and 66 percent 25 years and older. The movie received an “A” CinemaScore, which improved to a fantastic “A+” score for those below 18 and above 50. Also of note: Red Tails marks distributor 20th Century Fox’s best opening for a non-franchise title since last April’s Rio. –
