    'The Monuments Men' Cast On Jimmy Kimmel: Matt Damon and Bill Murray Steal the Show

    The cast of George Clooney's The Monuments Men have been everywhere lately, promoting a film that will need all their high-profile popularity to lure viewers in. Critics have rejected it. It is very rotten on Rotten Tomatoes. I found the World War II adventure about recovered art strangely flat. (Yo...

    The Monuments Men

    It’s rare to find a movie that isn’t ironic or aloof, especially in its overarching goal, to pay tribute to an unpopular enterprise that paid off for posterity.

    Bob Balaban, Fisher Stevens & More: Meet The Hotel Concierges Of Wes Anderson’s 'The Grand Budapest Hotel'

    For months, many pundits including us assumed Wes Anderson’s upcoming movie “The Grand Budapest Hotel” — which is set in the early 1930s on the brink of a World War — would naturally take place in the country of Hungary (Budapest being the country’s capital of course).

We see close-ups of a work of art -- van Eyck's oversized Ghent Altarpiece—hear banging, then see priests crate up the individual panels of the painting, put them in a truck in the dark of night and send it off f...

    Review: 'The Monuments Men' Starring George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray & Cate Blanchett

    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 premier...

    Watch: First Trailer For George Clooney's 'Monuments Men' Goes On A Mission

    So, what is "Monuments Men"? A WWII version of "Ocean's Eleven"? A lighter take on "The Good German" era? Well, whatever the film turns out to be, it's a consciously lighter turn from writer/actor/director George Clooney. "[Producer] Grant [Heslov] and I were looking to do a film that was less cynic...
