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.
