‘Valkyrie’ Poster Plays Down Film’s Nazi Angle, Eye Patch

The official poster for Tom Cruise's madcap Nazi adventure, Valkyrie, is out, and it's notable mostly for the fact that it hides pretty much everything that the movie is actually about. Tom's Nazi uniform — and eye patch! — are buried under delicate shading, and all swastikas have been carefully swapped out for some very modern, very elegant swastika-like designs. Look for confused elderly Tom Cruise fans spitting out popcorn at the first "Sig Heil!"
