United Artists have released a new movie trailer for Bryan Singer‘s Valkyrie. The new desert war footage and the addition of the tick-tock time-bomb score leads me to believe that the film might be a little more intense than I had first believed. The use of split screens seems forced, however, I doubt they are used in the actual film. I do love the way Singer frames his movies. And who doesn’t love the shot of the cigarette burning the fly? Watch the trailer below. As always, please tell me what you think in the comments!
Plot Synopsis: In a country in the grips of evil, in a police state where every move is being watched, in a world where justice and honor have been subverted, a group of men hidden inside the highest reaches of power decide to take action. Tom Cruise stars in the suspense film, VALKYRIE, based on the true story of Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg (Tom Cruise) and the daring and ingenious plot to eliminate one of the most evil tyrants the world has ever known. Director Bryan Singer (THE USUAL SUSPECTS, X-MEN, SUPERMAN RETURNS) re-teams with Academy Award®-winning USUAL SUSPECTS screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie to bring to life the story of the men who led the operation to assassinate Hitler. The film also stars an acclaimed cast including Kenneth Branagh, Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson, Carice van Houten, Thomas Kretschmann, Eddie Izzard, Christian Berkel and Terence Stamp.
Valkyrie hits theaters on December 26th 2008. Watch the trailer in High Definition on Yahoo.
