It’s been moved around the release schedule for most of the year, but finally, Bryan Singer’s WWII thriller Valkyrie starring Tom Cruise and Bill Nighy will be released the day after Christmas by United Artists and MGM.
Yahoo! Movies has the brand new final trailer for the movie, which presumably will debut in theaters with Spike Lee’s own WWII movie, Miracle at St. Anna.
The film’s Official Site has also been updated with a cool new look.
In the movie, Cruise plays Col. Claus von Stauffenberg, the aristocratic German officer who led the heroic attempt to bring down the Nazi regime and end the war by planting a bomb in Hitler’s bunker. The “July 20 Plot” on Hitler’s life is one of the most heroic but least known episodes of World War Two. 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.
You can check out the new trailer both in regular and High Definition formats here. (It’s the one labeled “Trailer 2”)
Valkyrie hits theaters on December 26.
