The Monuments Men Shows Off a New PosterCo-written, directed by and starring George Clooney, The Monuments Men could be one of Sony Pictures’ big Oscar pushes this year. Check out the cast in addition to Clooney: Matt Damon, Jean Dujardin, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Cate Blanchett, Hugh Bonneville, and Bob Balaban. See what I mean? And it’s heading to theaters during the awards season on December 18, 2013.
Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, The Monuments Men is a dramatic 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.
