The Monuments Men has premiered its second trailer and the George Clooney-directed and starring film looks primed for a serious Oscar run. As the first The Monuments Men trailer showed, the film is the true story of a ragtag group of art and culture experts who went behind enemy lines to secure some of our culture’s greatest treasures before Germany destroyed it all. Its premise is truly filled out in this latest teaser.
Hitler was stealing everything he could as he took over Europe and marched into Africa; some of it included priceless pieces of art and sculpture. From Michelangelo to Rembrandt and even Picasso, he nabbed what he could and left strict instructions that if Germany was defeated or he was killed… that it all must be burned to ash.
Clooney is joined in his all-star cast (teased in this stellar The Monuments Men poster) by Bill Murray, Matt Damon, John Goodman, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban and Hugh Bonneville. Look for The Monuments Men December 18.
