Christmas seems like a very odd release date for this film.

Don't you know - Santa Claus and the SS go together like ... like ... peanut butter and jelly ... Abbott and Costello ... Rosie O'Donnell and the all-you-can-eat buffet ...

Except musicals about wronged barbers killing clients. (Oh wait that was the 21st of December, my bad)... I dunno, Xmas day seems to be a popular day for historical pics, like Munich, Wolf Creek, and Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo. And to a lesser extent, some historical biopics like Dracula 2000, Invasion of the Body Snatchers ('78), and Cache.

I'm still upset that Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo continues to be left off the list of the AFI's Top 100 Films

Well, at least each and every unoriginal goober who has made a "(Insert movie title here) Part 2: Electric Boogaloo" joke has done his part to keep the film in our hearts and minds.

This is a great historical story. I remember the miniseries War & Remembrance's take on the assassination plot, and that was well done.

I'm really looking forward to a feature length film treatment of it. I rarely go to the movies anymore, but I'll certainly check this out sometime that week btwn X-mas and New years.

Does anyone remember The Plot to Kill Hitler TV movie from 1990?

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0100376/

I thought it was really good and actually owned it on VHS. I noticed they are releasing it on DVD in January.

I remember They Saved Hitler's Brain, despite all efforts to the contrary.

This has to be the most ridiculous movie i've ever seen. well not seen, but still....Tom Cruise is a german officer in WWII?

the hubris it takes to make something like this is mind boggling...i just don't understand what would possess anyone to think this was a good idea. totally idiotic, and I hope it flops with ishtar like glory. It's so insulting there just aren't words for how bad an idea this is....what a disaster.

I have no urge to see this movie. The trailer did nothing for me.

If this starred anyone other than Tom Cruise, it might be decent entertainment. It's just impossible to take him seriously - he looks like a little boy playing dress up.

I'm definitely looking forward to it but I think it'll tank pretty badly... like I said before they shouldn't be marketing this as a tom cruise vehicle...but rather highlight all the actors and market it more as a serious drama/award contending picture. Seems they went the popcorn, blockbuster route and that certainly isn't going to work imo.

this is a serious question as I can't for the life of me understand how someone would react to this with anything but laughter:

What exactly "looks great" about this silliness?
