“Red Tails” Soars At The Box Office: Claiming the #2 Spot Bringing In $19.1 Million

January 23, 2012 |  by  |  Black men doing their thang!, Movies/TV  |  Share

If you went to the movies this past weekend to support the movie “Red Tails” give your self a pat on the back for helping them score big box office numbers. “Red Tails”, the George Lucas film that tells the story of the Tuskegee Airmen during World War II, did far better than expected. Lucas spent 20 years pursuing the project, and recently revealed he couldn’t get any studio to finance the film because of an all-black cast. He finally decided to put up the money himself, and spent $58 million on the production budget and another $35 in distribution costs. Congrats to them!!! Click here to read more.

    The Carter's had the summer on LOCK!! With media outlets reporting divorce in the works, the power couple put all the rumors to rest, at the close out of the On The Run tour in Paris.
    Paris the city of LOVE holds a special spot in Beyonce' and Jay-Z's heart.
    Hova told the audience at Stade de France that Paris was also where Blue Ivy, was conceived.
    "We love Paris. It's special to us because we got engaged here and this is where baby Blue was conceived,"
    Beyonce' ended her "run" with a surprise appearance from Nicki Minaj to perform their CRAZY, remix to FLAWLESS. Social media went WILD as images and 15 sec videos started to hit Instagram and Twitter.
    But wait it get's even BETTER!! It's being reported that Jay-z changed the lyrics to his song "Beach Is Better" during the show. In an Instagram video (which first appeared on Vibe.com), Jay Z can be heard changing the line
    "I replace it with another one" to "pregnant with another one".
    The snippet immediately caused speculation that he had announced they are preparing for another baby.
    The OTR Paris show will air live on HBO September 20th. I'm sure the whole world will be tuned in, to see the full FLAWLESS performance and hear the pregnancy announcement.
