The Monuments Men — Trailer


added: Thu, Aug 8th '13

Continuing to prove that he's more than just a leading man, George Clooney is co-writing, producing, starring and directing the upcoming WWII drama, "The Monuments Men," which tells the unbelievable true story of a ragtag team of "architects and artists" that banded together for a secret and personal combat mission: save historic bridges and landmarks from being blown to bits while, at the same time, retrieve stolen artworks from hidden Nazi bunkers.

Clooney is joined by an all-star cast that includes Matt Damon Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban and Cate Blanchett. The film, which is slated to open in theaters next year on February 7th, has just received its debut trailer, giving the first look at this potential Oscar contender. Watch it, above.

Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, 'The Monuments Men' is an action-thriller focusing on an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked by FDR with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. It would be an impossible mission: with the art trapped behind enemy lines, and with the German army under orders to destroy everything as the Reich fell, how could these guys - seven museum directors, curators, and art historians, all more familiar with Michelangelo than the M-1 - possibly hope to succeed? But as the Monuments Men, as they were called, found themselves in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1000 years of culture, they would risk their lives to protect and defend mankind's greatest achievements.
