14 August 2008 @ 8:46Valkyrie gets an official release date
MGM has announced that Valkyrie will get a release date of December 26, 2008.
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 (Cruise) 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 (David Bamber) himself.
