Red Tails - Oprah & Tyler show support

New Year’s Eve boasts a bounty of stars

Fancy food, fancy shoes, fancy formal wear– if you have high expectations for the New Year, so does New Year’s Eve, the new movie from New Line Cinema helmed by Director/Producer Garry Marshall (Valentine’s Day, Pretty Woman), packed with a bounty of A-List stars and a potpourri of pop culture.

The film’s all-star cast includes Academy Award® winner Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, Jon Bon Jovi, Academy Award® nominee Abigail Breslin, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, two-time Academy Award® winner Robert De Niro, Josh Duhamel, Zac Efron, Hector Elizondo, Katherine Heigl, Ashton Kutcher, Seth Meyers, Lea Michele, Sarah Jessica Parker, Academy Award® nominee Michelle Pfeiffer, Til Schweiger, two-time Academy Award® winner Hilary Swank and Sofia Vergara.

Much like Valentine’s Day, New Year’s Eve is a collage of vignettes centered on the central theme of the holiday in New York City. The heartbeat and pulse of the film celebrate love, hope, forgiveness, second chances and fresh starts. As for its’ poignancy, everal scenes will grab you, particularly Halle Berry as Nurse Aimee, who provides doting care on a somewhat irascible terminal patient (Robert DeNiro) as he contends with making peace over his estranged daughter. We later discover who carries the heartbeat of Aimee’s affection, her deployed husband (Common), thousands of miles away at war.


Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry Join in Support of Red Tails

Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry have added their voices to support Red Tails, the 2012
World War II movie from executive producer George Lucas that celebrates the heroics of
the Tuskegee Airmen. At a private event held recently, Winfrey championed the film and
its message before an audience that included cast-members Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence
Howard, Nate Parker, Tristan Wilds, Elijah Kelley, and Ne-Yo; Director Anthony
Hemingway, Producer Rick McCallum, and six original Tuskegee Airmen.

“It’s a film about human beings with enormous courage who believed in our country, who
wanted to fight for our country, who are really our heroes,” said Winfrey. “George Lucas
decided to put his own money and team behind the making of this film because he so
believed in the story, the history, and the legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen.”

“I wanted to help ring the bell as loud as I could, to get as many people as possible to
see this movie,” said Perry. “It’s not just an important film about African Americans or
African American history; it is important film about American history. I’m very excited
about it.”

Red Tails opens in theaters January 20.
