Cruise’s ‘Valkyrie’ Turns Into An Xmas Pic — Break Out The Mistletoe!

valkyrie.jpgTom Cruise‘s embattled film “Valkyrie” was just shifted by MGM to a Dec. 26 release date, moved up from the Feb. 13, 2009 that was originally planned.
The film has had nothing but controversy, but MGM and parent Sony are probably hoping first, to have the film considered for Oscar potential for Cruise and director Bryan Singer and second, to take advantage for the good cheer that good Nazi killing films always stimulate.
This is the second United Artists-driven story today. Earlier, partner Paula Wagner said she’s leaving.
FBLA tends to doubt if Wagner’s move was reflective of the fear surrounding “Valkyrie.”
