Coming to UK cinemas this January is the hotly tipped dramatic thriller The Monuments Men which relates the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history. With George Clooney both starring and direction, The Monuments Men follows an unlikely World War II platoon, made up of museum directors, curators, and art historians, assigned by FDR to retrieve art trapped behind enemy lines in Germany plundered by Nazi thieves.
The film, adapted from Robert M. Edsel’s book of the same name, finds Clooney back in business with his long-time producing and writing partner Grant Heslov and marks their first joint production since bringing home the Academy Award® for Best Picture with last year’s Argo.
Clooney will be joined by an internationally renowned ensemble cast including the likes of Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Cate Blanchett and Dimitri Leonidas.
Distributed by 20th Century Fox, The Monuments Men is slated for a UK release this 9th of January 2014, and slightly earlier across the US from the 18th of December. We’ll leave you with the official domestic trailer followed by a few stills released from the film which you can click on to enlarge.
