You’ve seen the trailer and now, via Yahoo, Sony Pictures unleashed this first poster for director George Clooney’s THE MONUMENTS MEN starring George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban, Hugh Bonneville, John Goodman.
Is it just me or does this poster look like a half-ass terrible photoshop job?!
Co-scripted by Clooney’s best bud, Grant Heslov of Smokehouse prods., this is an adaptation based on Robert M. Edsel – Bret Witter’s book
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 to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. It would be an impossible mission: with the art trapped behind enemy lines, and with the German army under orders to destroy everything as the Reich fell, how could these guys—seven museum directors, curators, and art historians, all more familiar with Michelangelo than the M-1—possibly hope to succeed? But as the Monuments Men, as they were called, found themselves in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1000 years of culture, they would risk their lives to protect and defend mankind’s greatest achievements.
THE MONUMENTS MEN opens December 18th, 2013
