'The Monuments Men' Release Feb 2014, Watch Trailer Starring George Clooney, Matt Damon & More Here (VIDEO)


The Monuments Men movie release is a few months away with a huge all-star cast starring and directed by George Clooney. The comedy-drama is based on the book The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History by Robert M. Edsel, the film will concern the story of the Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives program, an Allied group, tasked with saving pieces of art and other culturally important items before their destruction by Hitler during World War II.

The movie stars George Clooney, Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, John Goodman, Bill Murray, and Jean Dujardin and is based on a true story of a special World War II platoon who rescued famous art pieces from the Nazis. 

Plot: Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, The Monuments Men is an action-thriller focusing 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. 

The Monuments Men is set to release to theaters in the U.S. on February 7, 2014. Will you head to the theaters to see it?
