Movie trailer: ‘The Monuments Men,’ the greatest art heist in history (VIDEO)

The Monuments Men is an action drama focusing on the seven-man World War II team that was tasked with protecting European culture by going into Germany to reclaim art pieces stolen by Nazi thieves.

Historically, The Monuments Men were a small group of men and women from varying nations who volunteered to fight the battle of saving as much European culture as possible while the war raged on around them. The team understood that value of culture and stepped up to make sure something was done to preserve it.

With an all-star cast like George Clooney, Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray, and Jon Goodman, how could the odd-ball team of museum directors, curators and art historians not succeed in their mission?
