Is George Clooney good at everything? In his upcoming movie, “The Monuments Men,” Clooney co-wrote, directed and starred in the film. Pretty interesting because “The Monuments Men” has sort-of an “Ocean’s Eleven” vibe to it. Anyways, check out the trailer below, which has an amazing cast by the way, and film synopsis after the jump:

“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,” which is co-written and directed by George Clooney, hit theaters December 18th, 2013, and stars George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban, Hugh Bonneville and John Goodman.
