We love the dream team of Matt Damon and George Clooney - see: the "Oceans" franchise - and the two stars are back together again with "The Monuments Men."
In the first trailer, Damon and Clooney break down the story for us while seated at a bar: In the midst of World War II, there was a need for "monuments men," a crew of architects and artists who could ID the buildings, bridges and art pieces that needed to be protected from getting wrecked in the midst of battle.
The film, which is also directed by Clooney, is based on Robert M. Edsel's best-seller, "The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History."
"If you destroy an entire generation of a people's culture, it's as if they never existed," Clooney says. "That's what Hitler wants, and it's the one thing we can't allow."
"The Monuments Men," which also stars John Goodman, Bill Murray, Hugh Bonneville and Cate Blanchett, will be released on December 18.
But that's not all - within the past 48 hours, a flood of movie trailers has swarmed the Interwebs.
