There’s a hell of a lot of great stuff in this second trailer for The Monuments Men. Start with George Clooney and Matt Damon building an “Ocean’s Eleven in WWII” squad to preserve and recover art stolen by the Nazis, and add guys like Bill Murray, John Goodman and Bob Balaban as members of the squad. But I think Cate Blanchett gets the win here, with her super droll question: “how can I help you steal our stolen art?”

This time, the Sharif does like it. Bill Murray has just signed on to star in Rock the Kasbah, directed by Oscar-winning director Barry Levinson.

Here’s the first trailer from The Monuments Men, the new film from director George Clooney. It’s based on a true story, and features Clooney and Matt Damon as two members of a team that ran through the battlefields of World War II trying to save art from destruction by various war machines. As Clooney’s character says in the trailer, ”if you destroy an entire generation of people’s culture, it’s as if they never existed.”
It’s a noble purpose, and since these guys weren’t soldiers — they were museum directors, curators, and art historians — there’s some opportunity for comedy, too. That’s why the rest of the cast includes actors like John Goodman, Bob Balaban, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin, and Hugh Bonneville.

Fiennes plays the concierge of the titular hotel, and the cast also includes Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Harvey Keitel, Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, Owen Wilson, Jeff Goldblum, F. Murray Abraham, Jude Law, and Mathieu Amalric.
Some set pics and videos hit the web last night, showing that the hotel of the title is grand, indeed, as are some of the costumes worn by the cast. Jeff Goldblum’s facial hair is no small matter, either. Check them all out below.
Update: At the request of Fox, we’ve pulled the images.

This morning Megan Fox, Ed Helms, and Jessica Alba announced the nominations for the 2013 Golden Globes. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the organization behind the event, is famous for nominating films and performances simply based on their star factor — if there’s an actor that members of the HFPA want to hang out with, they’re sure to get a nomination.
But the HFPA is great at putting on a show, and so the Golden Globes generate a lot of attention every year. And, as the NY Times points out, with the Globes nominations coming just days before Oscar nomination voting starts, there’s a possibility that nominations here could affect Oscar voting. The Best Picture nomination set includes what is already becoming a standard set of awards favorites, such as Lincoln, Silver Linings Playbook, and Zero Dark Thirty, but there are also nominations for Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, and Django Unchained. Salmon Fishing in the Yemen picked up a few nominations, actually, which was one of the big surprises.
The Golden Globes will air on January 13, 2013, hosted by Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. The full nomination list is below. Read More »
