Tom Cruise's German war drama Valkyrie has been delayed for a second time--with the film now pushed back to 2009.

The movie--the second from the United Artists studio, which Cruise runs with business partner Paula Wagner--was initially scheduled for a summer 2008 release but was bumped back to the end of the year after filming reportedly ran over.

But the picture has been rescheduled again, moving from its Oct. 3 slot to Feb. 13, 2009, to coincide with the President’s Day celebrations.

And studio bosses hope the holiday weekend release will give Valkyrie a major box office boost.

MGM distribution president Clark Woods says, "When an opening became available for President's Day weekend, we seized the opportunity."

In Valkyrie, Cruise plays a Nazi officer who is part of a plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler.
