The German government will allow the makers of a movie starring Tom Cruise as the country's most famous anti-Hitler plotter to film at the site where the hero was executed. Shooting of "Valkyrie," which has attracted controversy because Cruise is a prominent Scientologist, began in July.

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.

Images of Tom Cruise in Nazi uniform and an eye patch pinged through cyberspace Thursday, the first photos released from the set of "Valkyrie," the film that sparked fierce debate in Germany over the star's Scientology connections. Cruise bears a striking resemblance to Col.

Valkyrie United Artists, $29.98/$34.98; Blu-ray, $39.99 Despite all the controversy surrounding the Tom Cruise vehicle "Valkyrie," the movie itself is a solid entertainment, turning the real-life story of a 1944 plot to kill Adolf Hitler into a thriller so compelling that audiences might wonder whether it'll have a surprise ending. Cruise is a steady presence as coup-plotter Claus von Stauffenberg and is well supported by director Bryan Singer, who gives the movie a crisp, vivid look.
