The new trailer has just been released for the George Clooney directed and starred WW 2 film, Monuments Men which also stars Matt Damon, John Goodman, Bill Murray, Bob Balaban, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin, and Hugh Bonneville.
The new trailer about the team of men who were sent in to rescue all the art that Hitler stole before the Nazis could destroy it gives a lot more information about the plot and set the film up to be a much more epic film than the first trailer led us to believe.
Monuments Men Opens December 8th.
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.
