The Monuments Men, a movie with an all star cast, is slated to hit the bit screen nation wide Friday, Feb. 7. This action drama is based on a true story of what has been referred to as, “the greatest treasure hunt in history.” It’s a World War II story where a platoon which is tasked by FDR goes into a Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves to return them back to their rightful owners. The art is trapped behind enemy lines and the Germans have specific orders to destroy everything in their path. This platoon of seven guys is unlike anything you’ve ever seen. These guys are museum directors, curators and art historians, not military experts. Time is running low for these Monuments Men as they attempt to avoid the destruction of 1,000 years of culture and dodge the Germans. George Clooney directs and stars in the film. His co-stars are Matt Daman, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban, Hugh Bonneville and Cate Blanchett. The movie was originally slated to be released in December of 2013 but Clooney asked for more post-production time due to special effects and other details not being completely ready. The fear was the movie wouldn’t get the proper accolades without them.
