You’ll have to forgive us for making the same observation everyone else is making this morning, but let’s get this part out of the way right now: George Clooney’s The Monument Men trailer will remind you a lot of the Ocean’s 11 franchise. It’s a bunch of clever guys (including Clooney’s Ocean’s co-star Matt Damon) teaming up for a sly and secret mission. Ocean’s Ocean’s Ocean’s. OK. I think it’s out of our system.
The film, directed by and starring Clooney, is based on the true story of a team (comprised of art experts) who strived to save various pieces of art and culture from destruction during World War II. It’s an interesting plot for a dramedy, and the cast is pretty impressive: Clooney, Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin, and more. Curious how it looks? Want to be snarky and make a myriad of references to the Ocean’s 11 franchise? Dig the trailer:
The film is set for a December 18th release date—expect the film to be a nice bit of holiday filmgoing for the Christmas season, as well as a near-endless litany of references to the Ocean’s films.
