Leaked MGM Memo Discusses "Valkyrie" Buzz

Leaked MGM Memo Discusses "Valkyrie" BuzzSubmit Comment
Before a film is released, studios do their best to gather and make sense of all the buzz their marketing is producing. MGM is now doing exactly that with "Valkyrie," which will be appearing in theaters on December 26th.

DeadlineHollywoodDaily was able to get an internal (leaked) MGM memo, which talks about the reaction to the recently released "Valkyrie" trailer.

"Currently, reactions to the Valkyrie trailer are significantly favorable (approximately 80%) within Entertainment, Fan-Boy, Video Sharing, Social Networks, Social Bookmarks, and Fan communities. Fans deem the trailer "fantastic," often praising the "stylistic" way that the footage was cut and asserting that it is "way better" than the initial teaser. Enthusiasts also note that the "intriguing" trailer has furthered their anticipation for the film's release and anticipate that it will feature many great performances from the ensemble cast."

Apparently fans don't like Tom Cruise, but not bad enough to not go see the movie.

"Additionally, many viewers share avid excitement to see Bryan Singer's "distinctive work" in the film and, while others admitted that they "aren't fans" of Tom Cruise, they stated that the trailer has "sold" them on seeing Valkyrie in December. Neutral reactions (15%) arise from viewers sharing mixed reactions to the trailer, often asserting that while the film has the potential to be "awesome" they still have their doubts based on the initial critical buzz. The limited amount of unfavorable discussion (5%) stems from critics expressing general disinterest in the film, contending that the trailer makes Valkyrie look like "another Hollywood action movie.""

And what about the lack of German accents?

"While the majority of buzz about the lack of German accents is neutral, the topic is fueling discussion among online audiences. Critics contend that their absence creates a "lack of cohesiveness" while supporters believe that their inclusion would make the film appear "cheesy." There were also numerous users sharing mixed opinions on the topic, stating that while the lack of accents is "distracting" and anticipate it will "take some getting used to," the trailer "looks amazing" and they intend on seeing the film upon its release."

Is MGM correct? Come December, will you guys go to see "Valkyrie" in theaters?

Why would there be German accents? How does that work? Aren't these characters Germans and speaking in German? I mean, sure, the movie will be in English, but that is for the audience's benefit. Wouldn't the characters be speaking in German in reality, and if so, why would there be a need for them to have accents? They would speak their language as fluidly and clearly as a born and raised American would speak English. No?

I agree with Sinestro. I still think this movie will be a horrible bomb waiting to happen.

if we spoke german, it'd be just like we were watching a german movie. we'd understand their language just fine. but since it takes place in germany, they automatically have to speek german? i think the movie being in english is perfectly fine. get past it. accept it.
