Tom Cruise's new film "Valkyrie," the MGM/United Artists historical thriller that kicked up dust last month in Germany, now has a tentative release date: Aug. 8, 2008. Cruise, who is also one of the film's producers, stars as Col. Claus von Stauffenberg, the leader of a July 1944 attempt to assassinate Adolf Hitler with a briefcase bomb. Valkyrie was the code name for Stauffenberg's plot. The film will have plenty of competition if that Friday date holds.
