Welcome to the Modern Typewriter, a daily blog to discuss topics that can’t be answered easily, or are just some fun topics! Today is December 16th, 2008, I’m Royce, and I’m here to tell you about an upcoming movie called Valkyrie.
Tom Cruise plays Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg, the head organizer of the July 20 Plot to asassinate Adolf Hitler, Nazi Germany’s leader. ‘Operation Valkyrie’ was the name of the emergency plan used in case of a revolt in the country. The codename was then used by high-ranking Nazi officers to put their plan into action.
Their plan was to asassinate Hitler, take control of the country, and end the war safely and peacefully. The officers disagreed with Hitler’s plans for Germany and their conscience said otherwise that Hitler was bad for Germany. He needed to be stopped.
The plan ended up failing when the bomb that was supposed to kill Hitler did not fatally wound him. After the bombing, a kangaroo trial occurred and then sentenced the officers to immediate death.
The tagline of the new movie is: Many saw evil. They dared to stop it.
Below is the trailer for the new movie, Valkyrie, which will be in theaters December 25th, Christmas day, 2008.
