New Trailer for Historical Action Film The Monuments Men

The Monuments Men (December 2013)

A new trailer has been released by Sony for the historical thriller The Monuments Men (embedded, below).

Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, this action film focuses on an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked by FDR with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. It would be an impossible mission: with the art trapped behind enemy lines, and with the German army under orders to destroy everything as the Reich fell, how could these guys — seven museum directors, curators, and art historians, all more familiar with Michelangelo than the M-1 — possibly hope to succeed?

But as the Monuments Men, as they were called, found themselves in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1000 years of culture, they would risk their lives to protect and defend mankind's greatest achievements.

Directed by George Clooney from an adapted screenplay by George Clooney and Grant Heslov and based on the book of the same title by Robert M. Edsel and Bret Witter, The Monuments Men opens in theaters December 18, 2013.
