A second trailer has arrived for George Clooney’s “Monuments Men,” considerably more dramatic than the first lighter and more commercial trailer that debuted in August. In this new spot for the film, we’re introduced to each player (yes, “Oceans Eleven” style) who has a role in the daring mission to retrieve invaluable art stolen by the Nazis. This includes Bill Murray, Jean Dujardin, John Goodman, Bob Balaban and Cate Blanchett, with Matt Damon and Clooney apparently starring.
The film is thus far unseen, with Clooney opting out of the fall festival circuit and opting for an under-the-radar awards approach. Well, forget all that. This new trailer is designed to be taken seriously. Don’t discount it from the Oscar race. It hits theaters December 18.
