Watch: New Trailer For George Clooney’s ‘Monuments Men’ Steals Stolen Art

Watch: New Trailer For George Clooney's 'Monuments Men' Steals Stolen Art

While it won’t be in the Oscar mix both because it won’t be ready and for the fact that it’s, as George Clooney calls it,  “a commercial, non-cynical piece of entertainment,” “Monuments Men” still has the kind of star power to attract a red carpet. Indeed, it will be making its international premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in just a couple of months. And with that in mind, a brand new overseas trailer has arrived.

Featuring lots of new footage, but the same “Ocean’s Eleven“-meets-WWII vibe, this new spot features dashingly handsome men, real history, genuine emotion and all told, promises a pretty decent couple of hours at the movie house. Mission: accomplished, Clooney? Based on Robert M. Edsel‘s book, the movie chronicles the true story of a specially commissioned platoon who are tasked with recovering stolen artwork before the end of WWII, and a bunch of magazine ready faces—Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban, Hugh Bonneville, and Cate Blanchett—make up the squad. What’s not to like?

They need to rob that guy in Germany with the billion dollars worth of "acquired" artwork!

This trailer is simultaneously darker and more fun. Nicely done.


This cast will be amazing to watch regardless of the story. Damon, Clooney, Blanchett AND Murray?! Lots of wonderful to look at here. But the story is compelling, too. IMO they should wait and put it out as counter-programming to the superhero barrage next summer.


anyone else sensing an Oceans 11 vibe in the early part of the trailer, not only because of Clooney and Damon


A huge improvement over the first trailer. This is looking like a Clooney has found the right tone during the edit. Nice to see Damon and Blanchett back on screen together, too.
