It focuses on Tom Cruise's Col. Claus von Stauffenberg in his careful plan to assassinate Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.
Promotion on WWII thriller "Valkyrie" appears to heat up now that the first official trailer for the movie has just been launched on-line following the recently-released promo trailer.
Rolling a bit over two and a half minutes, the trailer can be accessed through a link on Valkyrie Trailer page at AceShowbiz. The very same piece is also shown in front of "Lions for Lambs" screenings, opening in theaters today, November 9, 2007.
The piece starts off with an oath stating unconditional obedience to Adolf Hitler before shifting to an image of Col. Claus von Stauffenberg, played by Tom Cruise, reflected in the mirror. It then follows the man as he and his conspirators hatch the plan to assassinate the Nazi leader with narration from Kenneth Branagh's Henning von Tresckow.
