Tom Cruise in Bryan Singer's Valkyrie

A new trailer for Bryan Singer’s “Valkyrie” has been released. The film stars Tom Cruise as Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg, a real life German hero who plotted an assignation attempt against Hitler. The film’s production was plagued with problems, including controversy in German over Cruise’s casting (they weren’t a fan of a Scientology portraying a German hero), background workers getting injured on set, an endless shifting of release dates, and reshoots needed to rework the film.

Well, it would appear that things are finally coming together for the film. Read on to watch the new trailer for “Valkyrie”.

The film will finally hit theaters on December 26th, 2008.
