Those of you who aren't attending a wedding on August 8, 2008 (aka 8/8/08 -- dun dun dun) will most likely be able to check out Bryan Singer's new flick, Valkyrie (or, The One That Doesn't Involve a Superhero ... Unless You Consider Tom Cruise a Superhero. Which You Might. And That's Okay. Just Don't Tell Anyone). According to a report over at Coming Soon, United Artists is eying the date -- romancing it a little -- and trying to decide whether or not it wants to invite it up for the night. If all goes as planned, Valkyrie (which IMDb is now calling Rubicon) will share that date with New Line's Journey 3-D, Sony's Pineapple Express, Disney's South of the Border and Warner Bros.' The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 (this time ... the pants come off!) Based on actual events, Valkyrie tells the story of German generals who come up with a plan to assassinate Adolph Hitler during World War II. Hilarity ensues.

On another front, Dreamworks Animation has decided to push the release of its Monsters vs. Aliens flick back one week to May 15, 2009. This was fairly expected, as it was originally set to go up against James Cameron's Avatar. And since both films will be released in digital 3D, it was smart to put them a week apart so that they're not fighting to the death. Apparently, Monsters vs. Aliens will debut on a whopping 6,000 screens -- however, right now only 800 screens are capable of showing 3D projection. What does that mean? Well, it means people need to pick up the pace ... and fast. Monsters vs. Aliens marks the first film for Dreamworks Animation that's produced in stereoscopic 3D technology (hopefully that means we get to actually take home one of those monsters after watching the film) and, according to CS, "reinvents the classic '50s monster movie into an irreverent modern day action comedy." There ya have it folks -- mark your calendars now.
