On the heels of the Blu-ray DVD release of The Josephine Baker Story from HBO Home Entertainment also comes news that the cable network's 1995 film The Tuskegee Airmen is also coming out the same day as the Baker film, on blu-ray DVD, January 17, 2012. No doubt HBO also timed the release to coincide with the release of Red Tails in January 2012.

The film stars Laurence Fishburne, Andre Braugher, John Lithgow, Allen Payne and Cuba Gooding Jr.

Hey wait... isn't Cuba also in Red Tails? Is he playing the same character or maybe he just likes wearing those leather flyer jackets?

No word yet as to extras, but the DVD will come packaged in a special 32-page hard-bound book with historical photography documenting the real-life Tuskegee flyers.

Here's the trailer to the HBO film which, as you can see, is just like Red Tails, even with seemingly the same lines of dialogue, but on a much smaller budget, and without the fancy over-the-top CGI cartoon airfights

    Isn't it interesting that in this film, all the airmen look like Men and in RED TAILS, all the airmen look like Teenagers?

    Wonder if it's the Hollywood mentality or if it's more accurate?
