Well whoever said that is a fu*kin idiot. Blacks don't watch movies? Since when?
Maybe "they don't buy" movies is a new stereotype they're trying to peddle. All black cast and it brought in 50 million. I'd say it did well. Could care less if the studio took a L.
I agree, I think it's stupid because "Think Like A Man" came out like two months later and did 98mil. I didn't see red tails because I personally don't like anything with Terrance Howard, and try to avoid him if I can. I think the studios want to double there money at least. So if 58mil was put up they wanted to make at least 116mil In Theaters which is not a lot for a blockbuster film, which this was supposed to be.
Now Red Tails was not a studio film though dude put that money up and pretty much took an L and an I told you so from the studios for his trouble. Then you get a movie like Red Hook Summer that didn't get support from us either and I liked that. I have no clue what people wanna see. I plan on making films I think will be good and will mean something in 20 years. If n*ggas come out to see it then they do if not fu*k it.
