Sony Pictures has posted a great behind-the-scenes feature on the history of The Monuments Men. Matt Damon sums it up with "Ultimately it's a movie about people who are willing to sacrifice everything to save what is the very best of us, of humanity." This looks great and I plan on reading the book afterwards. 

Synopsis: 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 opens on February 7th, 2014.

I'm down with just about anything related to WWII; I'm really looking forward to this.  I'm grateful for each encounter that I have had with a WWII veteran.

 Did anyone else notice the tone of the trailers has changed pretty dramatically.  The first trailers highlighted the comical scenes in the movie and now the trailers are making it sound much more action oriented....confusing audiences is no way to market a film...
