The Monuments Men Trailer: George Clooney Saves History

by at . Comments

George Clooney is stepping back into the role of director for The Monuments Men, an amazing true story that has never been told until now. Clooney, who last helmed The Ides of March, also stars in the film and reunites him with longtime collaborator Matt Damon to tell the story about a World War II U.S. platoon that was assigned to recapture artistic masterpieces from Nazi Germany before the war came to a close.

That platoon was made up of peacetime workers who made their living as art historians, curators and museum directors and were tasked by FDR with getting these priceless pieces of human history in secure hands before they were lost forever when Germany ultimately lost the war and fell into chaos.

The Monuments Men also stars John Goodman, Bill Murray and Bob Balaban and opens December 18.
