Film Trailers: THE MONUMENTS MEN
The new trailer for George Clooney's latest film The Monuments Men is a little underwhelming, but not by much. That is not to say I am not exciting to see it, but the film appears to be too jokey. I don't know. I understand with two great actors like Bill Murray and John Goodman you are going to have some comedy, but the film appears to be something that is going to be driven for both "Joe Popcorn" and the indie crowd. Other then that, it looks highly entertaining. The film revolves around a group of art historians and museum curators that band together to save stolen art from the Nazis. Director, co-writer, co-star and producer George Clooney as a rather stellar cast, that includes Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Bob Balaban, Jean Dujardin and Hugh Bonneville. The screenplay is co-written by Grant Heslov, who is also a producer on the film. He and Clooney also produced last years Academy Award Best Picture winner Argo, which this film seems to have a similar tone. Here is the trailer. Enjoy.
