Valkyrie – Movie Preview

The Bryan Singer (Superman Returns, X2: X-men United) movie starring Tom Cruise (Jerry Maguire, The Last Samurai) was moved to a December 26, 2008 release to qualify for the Oscars.

The movie also stars Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson, Carice van Houten and Eddie Izzard.

Synopsis: The “July 20th Plot” on Hitler’s life is one of the most heroic, but least known episodes of World War II history. Severely wounded in combat, Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg returns from Africa to join the German Resistance, and help create Operation Valkyrie, the complex plan that will allow a shadow government to replace Hitler’s once he is dead. But fate and circumstance conspire to thrust Stauffenberg from one of many in the plot to a double-edged central role. Not only must he lead the coup and seize control of his nation’s government–he must kill Hitler himself.
