Valkyrie moves again

If you thought Valentine's Day was an odd holiday to release a WWII thriller about German officers plotting to kill Hitler, does Christmastime feel more suitable?

That's now when Bryan Singer's VALKYRIE is slotted to open -- MGM has shifted the Tom Cruise movie yet again from next February 13th to December 26th of this year. The movie has already been bounced from this past June until October. It seems that the studio realized the potential for awards, as MGM honcho Clark Woods says: "We saw and tested the movie, and we believe a strong movie deserves a strong playdate."

Also, here's a new snap of Tom's pre-patched SS colonel in desert gear -- watch for the Hoth variant figure soon! Maybe.

Extra Tidbit: In other Cruise News (it's his week!), Tom's longtime biz partner Paula Wagner is reportedly stepping down as CEO and co-owner of United Artists, which she and Cruise resurrected a year or two back.

hmmmm

luke319 i agree Apt Pupil was good. But his last 3 movies I think were lackluster, both X-Men films and Superman. The plots were shallow and the characters afterthoughts except maybe Wolverine. I didnít see any difference in the structure of X3 with the exception of Singer not directing it. Superman was a mess, The man of steel was barley a character, The story was week and a bite off the original Superman. At the end of the movie he carried an island into space. WTF???? I want more character

I want more character development and story. I just worry that coming off of 3 subpar movies, will he give this story its due? Tom cruses accent is not there from what I saw. Why the hell is everyone speaking English so dam well in Nazi Germany? I'm just saying WWII movies are held to a very high standard since Saving Private Ryan and rightfully so. Singer had 2 good movies his last 3 terrible it's not the first time a director progressed in the wrong direction. Will this hold up to the hype, from what I saw so far, I donít think so.

I was worried for a second there...

I seriously thought that they were going to move it back to Christmas of 2009, but this is awesome! It really bugged me when they moved the release date out of awards season but it looks like for once the studios have realized their error.

Joey Tomatoes, you're completely entitled to your opinion, but if you haven't already you need to check out The Usual Suspects and ESPECIALLY Apt Pupil, which actually deals with Nazis, those are Singer's best films and in my mind already prove that he's

come on

I'm a huge WWII buff, I read and watch anything that has to do with the subject. The story is a solid one, my concern however comes with Tom Cruise being the lead in this film. His accent is non existent, also call me crazy but the movie should be in subtitles. During WWII you would never hear a German speak English, if they did it was very limited. That said and I know this is going to upset a lot of people, Brian Singer is not that great of a director. I donít think he has what it takes to

finally

I concur. Cruise's wackiness aside, this is a solid story and has a great cast of fine actors (including the Cruiser).

Can't wait!

I have been looking forward to this since the excellent cast has been revealed. This is a great TRUE story & you couldn't ask for a better cast which includes "Tom Cruise" (crazy or not, he is an excellent actor & looks so much like the Von Staffuenberg it's scary) Tom Wilkinson, Kenneth Branagh, Thomas Kretschmann, Eddie Izzard & Carice van Houten just to name a few. Not only that Bryan Singer of "The Usual Suspects" & the 1st 2 excellent "X-Men" movies is directing! I was worried that they
