Valkyrie Preview Clips

Tom Cruise - Valkyrie MoviePreview clips of Valkyrie, a movie by Director Bryan Singer starring Tom Cruise in the lead role, are now available:

In North Africa
Stauffenberg (Tom Cruise) is hit by a bomb.

More Valkyrie clips: -->

Redeem yourself

Not all like him

Plenty of time

It didn't go off

I am still interested by Valkyrie, but after watching those clips of Valkyrie I'm thinking that Tom Cruise was maybe not the best choice for interpreting Colonel Von Stauffenberg. I mean Tom Cruise sounds and looks so American in those Valkyrie preview clips, it's a bit hard to imagine him as a German colonel..

Valkyrie Second Trailer

Tom Cruise takes the role of a German Colonel Claus Von Stauffenberg in Valkyrie, an upcoming WWII movie revolving around the colonel's failed attempt to get rid of the ugly Hitler for Germany's sake.

Here below Valkyrie trailer 2:

Based on the true story


There is no denying that Tom Cruise is a good actor. Despite the controversy around his dedication to the scientologist sect I believe the cast of Tom Cruise in the role of Colonel Von Stauffenberg was the right choice.

Valkyrie Official Trailer

The trailer of Bryan Singer’s Valkyrie has been released.
Here it is:

"I swear by God this Sacred Oath:
That I shall render unconditional obedience
to Adolf Hitler, the F├╝hrer of the German Reich."

Well some promises are really not worth keeping...

Stauffenberg (Tom Cruise) realized the nonsense of this oath and finally decided to join the German Resistance.

Update: the movie will be released in February 2008
Actually the movie has been rescheduled for December 26, 2008.

Tom Cruise as Colonel Stauffenberg in Valkyrie

Based on actual events, Valkyrie follows a plot to assassinate Hitler during the height of World War II.
Colonel Claus Von Stauffenberg was at the center of this plot.
Cruise was attracted to the role based on the resemblance of his profile to the colonel.

The real Stauffenberg on the left and Tom Cruise on the right: What a resemblance!

Because of Tom Cruise's involvement in Scientology the movie fuels some controversy.
But let's hope that a spreading global awareness of Stauffenberg's attempted plot will result from this movie.

The movie is currently in production and should be released in February 2009 (the release date of Valkyrie has been pushed back twice already!).
