Must Watch: George Clooney's 'Monuments Men' Full Theatrical Trailer
"We have been tasked to find and protect art that the Nazis have stolen." Following the promising teaser trailer earlier this year, the first full theatrical trailer for George Clooney's historical drama The Monuments Men has arrived, and you can be damn sure this will be a big Oscar contender. However, the tone of the first half of this trailer seems clumsy, with the music not really allowing for the comedy to land very well. There's a sense of urgency in the trailer, even in parts where it's not necessary. Thankfully, the second half redeems it and shows off just how fantastic this film seems to be and the Academy will love it.
Here's the new trailer for George Clooney's The Monuments Men, originally from Yahoo:
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?
