Tom Cruise's 'Valkyrie' Delayed, Again?!
The World War II drama thriller film starring Tom Cruise has been reported to be experiencing another delay in its release date as the film is now scheduled for February 13, 2009 release.


The World War II drama thriller starring Tom Cruise has experienced another shifting schedule for its release date. According to Hollywood Reporter, the MGM-distributed movie, which earlier has been moved from its original July 4 release to October 3, has been delayed once again as the film is now reported to hit the theaters on February 13, 2009.

The announcement of the pushing back of the release date reportedly was made by Cruise and United Artist, which produced the film, on Monday, April 7. Hollywood Reporter further revealed that the decision of making the second release date changes was taken after Steve Martin's comedy sequel "The Pink Panther 2" and Benicio Del Toro-starrer horror thriller "The Wolfman" have been moved to another date. On this new date, 'Valkyrie' will be up against romantic comedy "Confessions of a Shopaholic" and horror thriller "Friday the 13th".

Explaining about the moving of the release date, MGM distribution president Clark Woods stated, "MGM is proud and excited to be presenting 'Valkyrie,' and because of that we want to give it the best launch possible. When an opening became available for Presidents Day weekend, we seized the opportunity. Having seen a lot of the film and how great it is going to play once it's finished, moving into a big holiday weekend is the right move." Further, the president of Worldwide Marketing and Publicity for United Artists Dennis Rice added, "'Valkyrie' is shaping up to be a phenomenal movie. We're delighted that MGM has agreed to hold the release until the very strong holiday weekend."

Regarding the first delay, it was earlier explained that the pushing back of the schedule had to be done because the filmmakers need more time to shoot additional footage for the film. Reportedly, the additional footage will be lensed in May. According to Reuters, the extra footage is needed since some of the earlier taped scenes were damaged during processing.
