Wanna see Tom Cruise as a Nazi? Of course you do. With Cruise’s new movie Lions for Lambs hitting theatres this weekend, the first official trailer for his next film Valkyrie has just been released online. Don’t get too excited though… Cruise plays a hero, as usual. Much like Schindler’s List, this is another story about someone in the Third Reich who was trying to do what’s right. Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg was the man at the center of what was known as Operation Valkyrie: an internal plot to kill Hitler and topple his regime from the inside.
It certainly sounds like a story worth telling, but the trailer didn’t do much to grab me one way or the other. The movie co-stars Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson, Terence Stamp, Kenneth Branagh, Eddie Izzard, and Carice van Houten, and was directed by Bryan Singer (Superman Returns, X-Men, The Usual Suspects). I’m hoping it’s an improvement over his previous movie involving Nazis, Apt Pupil. Valkyrie is scheduled for release on June 27th, 2008.» Related Link: Yahoo!: Valkyrie trailer
