Valkyrie trailer!

09.26.2008

Just a short while after the new poster and whole bunch of stills for VALKYRIE were handed over by MGM, the new trailer was released online. Though the film has been plagued by bad buzz almost since day one, I don't see much to complain about in this trailer. It's tight, suspenseful and impressively shot by Bryan Singer. Here's one film I'm really rooting for because I don't think it deserves the invective launched against it. I've always enjoyed Bryan Singer's work (SUPERMAN RETURNS excluded) and Tom Cruise's work (VANILLA SKY aside) so why wouldn't I enjoy VALKYRIE? Check it out for yourself below (or head to Yahoo! Movies to see it in HD) to make an informed opinion...

This film would not work with German accents/German subtitles. That is exactly what [link] know, so you get a film that is period-specific (the set designs look incredibly detailed, for example) but accessible for wide audiences.

If you want flicks in German about Nazis, check out the Foreign Film section at your local video rental establishment.

In any case, this looks pretty interesting. The eye patch did make me giggle for a nanosecond, but I got over it and was swept up.

So many movies coming out soon, no?

We're lucky!

accent?

Nice Trailer, but what´s your problem with an accent? If they wanted to make it real the actors would have to speak german (the persons are german, the location is germany and so on) after all. Speaking english with german accents makes very little sense in that case.

Issues with the accents aside, this looks like an awesome movie.

That trailer was wicked.
I still think Cruise is too pretty for this role.

I remember seeing the first trailer and being turned off by the lack-of-accents. But now... I'm so surprised and amazed by that trailer. Accents or not, this looks to be one compelling film.

I'm very impressed with the trailer I have to say.

just for my 2 cents - they should have just walked up to Hilter and just shot him. It would have been much simpler.

That was one of the most well constructed trailers I've seen in a while, but the idea of them, not only speaking English but also lacking any seblance of a German accent puts me off a little bit. But so far the marketing campaign seems to be spot on for this one.

Looking good!

Looks great! I don't understand all the hatin' on this movie. Probably because of Cruise...which is also dumb because who cares what he does personally, I don't hang out with him, just as long as he can act.

No accents are better than bad accents, so that doesn't bother me either.

But definitely the best looking trailer in a while.

Amerigermenglish?

This looks like a cool movie, but I think I may have a harder time really getting into a movie that's very specifically about Nazi Germany, with actors who all have American and English accents. I know that badly faked accents can kill a movie, but these are the worst-sounding German accents of all (e.g. none at all).

I don't think filming the movie in German is necessary (it's hard to follow a fast-paced movie with subtitles unless the dialog is sparse), but German accents would at least

looks good but...

Everyone should have done a German accent...isn't that what acting is? taking on a role, absorbing the details, researching, making the characters authentic? the dialog sounds weird with all the english accents and american accents...

Startlingly Good!

This is possibly the only coming attraction I've seen in recent memory that contains such rich, minute details - which obviously enthuse audiences to go to the movies. This seems like a big Oscar worthy picture. Just epic!

I'd like to see it. But i think I'd have more respect for the film if it was in German. It's just weird seeing Nazi settings and hearing english. Should have taken the hint from Clint Eastwood and Del Toro.

Just wanted to say I thought Superman Returns was a decent movie; I don't think people found it boring, just that we have already seen basically the same movie with reeve.

But Valkyrie looks cool enough to see in the theater I guess. Tom Cruise is so poorly misjudged; he is such a terrific actor. The plot looks neat too; I have never heard of it before, so yeah, looking forward to it.

As for Singer, this is a very different type of film for him, so lets hope he pulls

Superman Returns was superb. Maybe for those who are disinclined to think and have no emotion to speak of, I can see how it could be boring. But even then, the film features one of the greatest, adrenaline pumping action scenes in the past decade. I still get the same high every time from watching that, as I did the first time I saw it. But anyway, just my opinion.

I'm excited for Valkyrie. Looks good and I think Cruise has some great acting in him, he just requires the right material to

I'm excited for Valkyrie. Looks good and I think Cruise has some great acting in him, he just requires the right material to bring it out. Could this be it? I hope so. Either way, it could still be a good movie.
