Hollywood doesn’t believe that Black America will support a movie like Red Tails, and many African-Americans are making it a point to make to see the film this weekend to help boost the box office numbers. But how is Red Tails doing?
So far, the movie is exceeding expectations. However, studio execs don’t expect the support to last. Red Tails is currently on track to make$15-$18 million this weekend, and $6-8 million today (January 20th). This would make Red Tails the No. 2 film in theaters, behind Underworld Awakening starring Kate Beckinsale and Michael Ely, which should bring in $24-$27 million.
