Let's not beat around the bush: 'The Monuments Men' looks terrific and we'll be completely and totally shocked if it's not one of the year's most talked-about films come Oscar time. Then again, we'd expect nothing less than a historical dramatic comedy directed by George Clooney starring the likes of Matt Damon, John Goodman, Bill Murray, Bob Balaban, Jean Dujardin and Cate Blanchett. The first official poster has arrived, making it pretty clear that this insanely good cast will be the major selling point going forward.
The Monuments Men
'The Monuments Men' focuses 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.
They've starred in movies for and with each other over the years, and now Matt Damon and George Clooney will be continuing their onscreen bromance with 'The Monuments Men.'
George Clooney has never had any trouble assembling an all-star cast for his productions. Indeed, why would he? But his latest is looking like it boasts the most impressive line-up to date. Don't believe it? How does a movie featuring Clooney, Daniel Craig, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray, John Goodman and recent Best Actor Oscar winner Jean Dujardin sound?
