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

Tom Cruise and MGM should be saluted. Valkyrie has endured more negative speculation than any movie in recent memory, but rather than succumbing to the bad buzz, they turned it around and created one of their first self-generated hits. Their weekday numbers have been respectable and after the upcoming weekend, this WWII spy drama will have crossed the $60 million mark after only 11 days in theaters. {nl}Source:  Entertainment Weekly

{nl}The moment I walked out of my screening of Valkyrie a few weeks back, I knew I wanted to talk with both director Bryan Singer and screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie. While I didn’t get to talk with Singer (next time!), MGM did get me some time with Christopher McQuarrie, who turned out to be a fascinating person to talk with, because not only did he write the screenplay for Valkyrie, but he produced the film as well. If you’re at all interested in hearing a lot more about the inspiration behind Valkyrie or the extensive research that went into it, then you definitely need to read this interview. Or if you love screenwriting and just want to get a grasp on how they formed this impressive screenplay, definitely start here.{nl}I gave Valkyrie a 9 out of 10 in my review of it a few weeks ago. Not only did I love Bryan Singer’s directing and most of the actors, but I especially thought McQuarrie’s screenplay was top-notch. Going into this interview there was a lot that I was hoping to cover just purely out of interest in hearing about how they came up with all aspects of the script and how they turned a fascinating historical WWII story into a great bit of cinema. From there, McQuarrie and I just went into so much more, covering the accents, historical accuracy, the characters, and even the idea of actually having Stauffenberg kill Hitler. Read on!{nl}Q:  It’s been a while since you’ve last written anything and so I’m wondering how you first got involved with Valkyrie and what was it that really interested you in that story?{nl}Christopher McQuarrie: I was in Berlin in early 2002. And I was on a tour of the city. The last place my tour guide took me was the Benderblock which is where a lot of the events of July 20th took place and where the whole story came to an end. And the Bendlerblock is now a monument to the German resistance. And as he was telling me about this
