The New Valkyrie trailer has just been released and the BEST part about it is…. EDDIE IZZARD! That’s right. He made it into the trailer… two times! As does Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson, and Kenneth Branagh. But all those were expected. We get to watch Izzard scream into Tom Cruise’s face. HOW EXCITING! From Executive Transvestite to German officer! I just got even more excited about this film.
I mean honestly. Having Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson, and Kenneth Branagh as your supporting cast is amazing. Then you have Cruise to lay down the stunts. And you top it off with Eddie Izzard! I’m there! And the story doesn’t look half bad either. German’s trying to kill Hitler during WWII (I think we know how it ends), what a great story to tell!
Check out the new trailer below and let us know what you think!
Synopsis: At the height of WW2, a group of high-ranking German officers hatched a plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler, and seize power of the military command in order to end the war. The operation was codenamed “Valkyrie”, for the emergency plan that was meant to be used in case of a revolt against the Nazi government. This plan had been modified by the conspirators to ensure their success, but for various reasons the plot failed when finally carried out on 20 July 1944. The conspirators of the inner circle were shot after a kangaroo trial or sentenced to death soon after.
In theaters December 26th 2008.
