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.

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.
