First Poster for 'Monuments Men' Shoots for the Stars, Not for the Art
Following the stellar first trailer for the pseudo-Ocean's 11 in World War II, the first poster for George Clooney's new historical drama The Monuments Men is here. It's not the most compelling poster for a film, but it certainly uses the power of the impressive cast to get audiences interested. It's hard to find a better cast than George Clooney, Matt Damon, John Goodman, Bill Murray, Jean Dujardin, Cate Blanchett and more. We just wish there was a little more indication of what this film was about on the poster. It could've easily featured some of the art these soldiers are tracking down, but there's just a stripe.
Here's the first poster for George Clooney's The Monuments Men from IMP Awards:
The Monuments Men is directed by George Clooney (Good Night and Good Luck, The Ides of March) who co-wrote the script with his producing partner Grant Heslov. An adaptation Robert M. Edsel's book of the same name, the film follows the true story of a hand-picked group of art experts chosen by the U.S. government to retrieve artwork stolen by the Nazis. Clooney also stars in the film along with an impressive cast including Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban and Hugh Bonneville. Columbia Pictures releases the film on December 18th late this winter. Looking good?
