Mumbai: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and United Artists have announced that they are moving the release date of Bryan Singer’s World War II thriller Valkyrie, starring Tom Cruise, to President’s Day Weekend 13 February, 2009.
"MGM is proud and excited to be presenting Valkyrie, and because of that we want to give it the best launch possible," said Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios president of domestic distribution Clark Woods, which is distributing the movie domestically. "When an opening became available for President’s Day Weekend, we seized the opportunity. Having seen a lot of the film and how great it is going to play once it’s finished, moving into a big holiday weekend is the right move."
"Valkyrie is shaping up to be a phenomenal movie," said United Artists president of worldwide marketing and publicity Dennis Rice. "We’re delighted that MGM has agreed to hold the release until the very strong holiday weekend."
