The Monuments Men Take You On A Treasure Hunt
For a new featurette

Chances are you don't need encouragement to go and see George Clooney’s latest starring/directing/producing gig The Monuments Men, given the top notch cast and fascinating real-life-based story. But just in case you’re in need of an extra push, here comes Clooney and his cast to talk up the film in a new featurette. 

Set in World War II, The Monuments Men finds an unlikely squad of recruits culled from museums, galleries and universities for a special mission in liberated Europe. Older than most soldiers in the conflict, they’re briskly trained up and tasked with braving the front lines of combat to stop priceless works of art, architecture and other artifacts from being stolen or destroyed. 

Not only did they have to go up against the Nazis, but the Monuiments Men also had to try to convince the Allied troops not to fire on certain buildings: no easy task for a team of volunteers including art historians and curators. The cast includes Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban and Hugh Bonneville. The Monuments Men will march into our cinemas on February 14.
