Red Tails came in second place at the box office this weekend earning $19.1 million. The film did better than expected, and many are saying that the public endorsement of Tyler Perry helped the George Lucas film soar. According to Entertainment Weekly the movie about the Tuskegee Airmen gained momentum in the week leading up to its release. Last week, in a letter to his fans, via his website, Tyler Perry urged moviegoers to support Red Tails:

It was do or die time for black movie lovers this weekend. #WeFight! #WeFight! #WeFight! If the film is #1 it’ll be a major victory not only for George Lucas but the Black community.

Red Tails hasn’t hit theaters yet, but filmmaker George Lucas is already ready to turn it into a big-screen saga if the movie performs well in theaters.
