Columbia Pictures has released the second trailer for "The Monuments Men" featuring an all star cast, including AiF Ambassador Cate Blanchett, George Clooney, Matt Damon, Daniel Craig, Bill Murray, Jean Dujardin, John Goodman, Hugh Bonneville and Bob Balaban.
Clooney stars and directs his own screenplay, adapted from a book by Robert M. Edsel titled "The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History," and Grant Heslov produces.
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, behind enemy lines, to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners.
As Clooney says in the trailer, "If you destroy an entire generation of people's culture, it's as if they never existed. That's what Hitler wants and it's the one thing we can't allow."
