Watch: 'Monuments Men' Featurette is an International Treasure Hunt
Following a clever newsreel trailer towards the end of last year, the February release of The Monuments Men gets some more hype in the form of a new featurette with director George Clooney and his cast talking about the mission of the real-life, aged military task force. Matt Damon and Jean Dujardin (with his debonair French accent) are among the cast members talking about the film. There's some new footage within the featurette as well, and while the film's Oscar chances are less likely with this early of a release in the year, it's still one of my 14 Most Anticipated Films of 2014. Hopefully the wait will be worth it. Watch!
Here's the new featurette for George Clooney's The Monuments Men from 20th Century Fox UK:
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 finally releases the film on February 7th this year. Looking good?
