“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.

    Hey folks!! I wanted to share with my lovely Addicted2Candi.com readers, the new business I am working on. The Addicted Life is part of my whole ADDICTED branding. I've created it for the dope girls of the world, that enjoy rocking both tshirts and heels. Since I went to school for fashion(merchandising), it made sense to apply the knowledge I've obtained in school and push my own merchandise promoting my brand. If you're interested in keeping up with the release dates, please email theaddictedlife12@gmail.com to be placed on the email list. Thank you all in advance for the support. I am sure you'll love all the pieces. www.TheAddictedLife.com on its way. Be sure to follow on IG as well @TheAddictedLife
