The Monuments Men Synopsis
Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, The Monuments Men is an action drama 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. From director George Clooney, the film stars George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban, Hugh Bonneville, and Cate Blanchett. The screenplay is by George Clooney & Grant Heslov, based on the book by Robert M. Edsel with Bret Witter. Produced by Grant Heslov and George Clooney.

George Clooney's The Monuments Men Launches New Historical Website And Newsreel George Clooney's The Monuments Men Launches New Historical Website And Newsreel
Usually viral videos are only used by big summer blockbusters, but this preview has all of the same bells and whistles, appearing as a reel that might actually exist in the world of the film while also serving in an advertising capacity. Trailers typically have to find an artful way of explaining what a movie is about, but this video is kind of an interesting short cut.

Matt Damon And George Clooney Assemble The Monuments Men For First Trailer Matt Damon And George Clooney Assemble The Monuments Men For First Trailer
The first trailer establishes the WWII-era dramedy as a blend of everything from Ocean’s 11 and The Good German to Saving Private Ryan and The Dirty Dozen. Basically, it looks fantastic. Clooney makes exactly the type of movie I want to see in theaters, and Monuments Men looks like another potential home run.

Clooney is describing the project, called The Monuments Men for now, is his top priority, which means his planned Smothers Brothers film might have to wait. I'm fine with that-- the idea of this World War II story is far too intriguing to wait too long to see it.
