Valkyrie, starring Tom Cruise, Kenneth Branagh, Bill Nighy, Terence Stamp, Tom Wilkinson, Jamie Parker, and Eddie Izzard, Thomas Kretschmann, Carice van Houten, Christian Berkel directed by Bryan Singer, co-written by Christopher McQuarrie and Nathan Alexander.{nl}Both director Bryan Singer and star Tom Cruise have described Valkyrie as an adventure thriller. Maybe that’s what they had in mind — which is understandable since Cruise has established himself as an actor who can drive such films — but they should have pushed the notion aside. Maybe Singer can’t help but make a film full of elaborately uniformed heroes and villains; after all he effectively launched the X-Men franchise and re-imagined Superman (albeit in the none-too-successful Superman Returns).{nl}With reasonable diligence and relative accuracy, Valkyrie tells the intricate story of Colonel Claus Philipp Maria Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg, who attempts to assassinate Adolf Hitler and, with his band of co-conspirators, take over the crumbling Third Reich before the Allies force an unconditional surrender on his homeland. Stauffenberg was an aristocrat, an active soldier, and an unrepentant nationalist who believed in the greater glory of the German people. {nl}READ THE FULL REVIEW HERE{nl}Source:  Brad Balfour, The Huffington Post

Tom is on the cover of the January issue of Famous magazine. We’ll post the scans as soon as we can.{nl}{nl} {nl}{nl}{nl}After a lifelong fascination with the Second World War, Tom Cruise finally makes his first WWII movie, Valkyrie. And while it’s no surprise that he plays the hero, it is surprising that he’s not an American. In an exclusive interview with Famous, Cruise explains{nl}{nl}As a kid, Tom Cruise didn’t play cops and robbers. He didn’t play Batman and Robin. He didn’t even play Mission: Impossible. {nl}He and his friends would watch World War II documentaries on TV, and then play war.{nl}Not so fast. First Cruise has to go out and sell Valkyrie to the world. And it’s not hard to see that he has more of a stake in this one than in most of his movies. It is, after all, being produced by United Artists, the studio Cruise revived in 2006, and which has had a bit of trouble taking flight. Plus, it’s not often that you get a call from a publicist offering an interview with Tom Cruise, as we did, and then have the man himself on the other end of the line just 48 hours later. {nl}“You know, I always promote my films,” he says. “But I also love the film. It’s a story that I’d never heard, an inspiring story…. When I first read the script, I guess it was about two years ago, I thought, ‘My God this is an incredible suspense thriller.’”{nl}It wasn’t until Cruise met with director Bryan Singer (X-Men) that he realized it was also a true story.{nl}Known alternately as Operation Valkyrie and the 20 July Plot, if successful, the scheme would have seen von Stauffenberg and his cohorts
