Must Watch: George Clooney's 'Monuments Men' Full Theatrical Trailer

The Monuments Men

"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?

    Oh boy. Heavy stuff. I really like this trailer. I like how it asks the tough question, "Is art worth human lives?" I think the artists especially ones like Picasso, would say no, but art's appreciators would and will argue yes.
    • I think the financial value of the art is a lot more important David. Hitler did destroy a fair bit of what he didn't like, he wasn't a very good painter himself, so maybe he was jealous. I remember seeing some of his watercolours, they were a bit rubbish.

        If it was purely a financial thing, than it definitely wasn't worth human lives. The point is whether culture and art have more worth than money or people, and whether in essence it is needed for people to hold onto humanity.
    • It's the financial value too though David.

    01:30 : That music isn't half inspired by Time, from Inception...

      No kidding. That was a very blatant paralell

    A much heavier in tone trailer that sets the film at a more highbrow level than the first more comedic trailer. The first one had me interested, but now they have my money.
  • Oh goodness. I'm in deep now.

    I smell a pocketful of firecrackers waiting for a match. This is full of juice and vinegar waitin' for someone to put on the squeeze. Yeah.

    Too much of green screen...

    Needs more Bill Murray

    I was beginning to think Dujardin was abandoning Hollywood. Good to see him in this fine cast.
