Well, he's not playing Danny Ocean, but George Clooney is putting together one helluva team for one helluva caper -- this time, against the Nazis! Check out the just-released, full-length trailer for "The Monuments Men," the fact-based WWII drama that pretty much has Clooney doing everything but the catering.

An adaptation of Robert M. Edsel's non-fiction book, which was co-adapted and co-produced by Clooney and his longtime collaborator Grant Heslov, the movie tells the amazing true story of the Monuments Men, a special military unit of savvy art curators, historians and architects who joined the war in a pure-hearted effort to save both historic landmarks and stolen artworks from the clutches of Hitler's army.

Clooney (who also directs) leads the team and cast, which includes Matt Damon, John Goodman, Bill Murray, Jean Dujardin, Hugh Bonneville, Bob Balaban and Cate Blanchett. You can expect this one to hit theaters next year on February 7th.

synopsis:
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.
