George Clooney and Matt Damon star in new trailer for The Monuments Men: watch now
A new trailer has appeared online for The Monuments Men, George Clooney’s heist movie set against the backdrop of World War 2. The film tells the story of a group of specialists charged with recovering a number of priceless artworks seized by the Nazis, before they can be destroyed. It’s difficult not to draw comparisons with Ocean’s Eleven when a raft of big-name stars begin to line up as the various components of the heist, while Clooney once again plays the man pulling the strings. Take a look, below: If we’ve seen a trailer for a wartime film that looks even half as much fun as this does, we can’t recall it. Clooney certainly knows how to bring the slick, even when events are set in Nazi Germany. Written and directed by Clooney himself and co-starring Matt Damon, Bill Murray and Cate Blanchett, The Monuments Men will open in the UK on 9 January 2014.
