Cate Blanchett. Okay. George Clooney. Go on. Matt Damon. I’m in (I’m a sucker for anything Damon). Throw in John Goodman and Bill Murray and the cast is chalk full of character, charisma, good looks, charm, and greatness. Not to mention, Clooney co-wrote the film and is sitting in the director’s chair as well.
The Monuments Men combines architects and artists with Nazis and World War 2, as Clooney must wrangle a team together in an attempt to salvage a culture in the midst of Hitler’s reign and chaos throughout Europe. Ordinary people in the roles of spies in a top-secret mission. I’m interested.
The Monuments Men opens in theaters on December 18, 2013.
