We are quickly approaching the February 7th release of the upcoming Sony Pictures film The Monuments Men. As we get closer and closer, we are going to start seeing more promos giving us a look inside the World War II era film. There is a new TV Spot for the film that helps illustrate the unusual platoon’s importance.
The Monuments Men is based on the book The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History by author Robert M. Edsel.
It tells the story of an unlikely group of people, made up of museum directors, curators, art historians, and more tasked with heading into Nazi Germany during the closing moments of World War II to rescue the artwork that was requisitioned by the Nazi’s during the war and returning them to their rightful owners before they are destroyed forever.
The Monuments Men is written by George Clooney and Grant Heslov, who also wrote the screenplay for another Clooney film, The Ides of March. Clooney will also be directing.
Here is a look for the latest TV Spot for the upcoming film The Monuments Men.
The Monuments Men also stars Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Hugh Bonneville, and more.
The Monuments Men is scheduled to be released on February 7, 2014.
