First Trailer For George Clooney's THE MONUMENTS MEN Blows The Dust Off History

Peter Martin, Managing Editor
Looking like a cross between Ocean's Eleven and Kelly's Heroes, the first trailer for The Monuments Men is a breezy, jazzy history lesson, refashioned into a thriller.

Reuniting George Clooney and Matt Damon, chemistry intact, along with Bill Murray (a silent presence here), John Goodman, Bob Balaban, and Cate Blanchett, the film returns to the final days of World War II in Europe, as a team of art historians and museum curators race against time to recover art treasures stolen by the Nazis before Hitler destroys them, according to a brief synopsis at IMDb. 

Clooney directed and co-wrote the script with producing partner Grant Heslov. It's due for release on December 18. And this trailer is a winner.

    I was thinking more of Three Kings(1999) but then again, that film is like updated version of Kelly's Heroes (1970), looks entertaining but does have story too?

    It has a great cast, thanks Mr Martin.

    Trailer works for me......sadly.

    Looks like Ocean's 11 meets Inglorious Basterds. Wasn't expecting the comedic vibe considering the source material.
