International Poster For George Clooney’s ‘The Monuments Men’ – Also Starring Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett…
Emileeid has unveiled this new international poster for writer-director-star George Clooney’s ‘The Monuments Men,’ which is now set for February 7th, 2014. Co-written by Grant Heslov, the film’s stellar cast also includes Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban, Hugh Bonneville and John Goodman. Based on the book ‘The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History’ by Robert M. Edsel, the film concerns the story of the “Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives program, an Allied group, tasked with saving pieces of art and other culturally important items before their destruction by Hitler during World War II.
The true action-thriller focuses 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.

Ben Affleck Talks ‘Batman Vs. Superman’; Speaks On His Initial Reluctance To Play The Dark Knight & Zack Snyder’s Vision
In a recent chat with Al Horton and 411mania, Ben Affleck opened up about playing Batman/Bruce Wayne in the hugely anticipated follow-up to ‘Man of Steel,’ the tentatively titled ‘Batman vs. Superman.’ Ask about his first thoughts when the idea of playing Batman was originally presented to him, Affleck said, “Initially I was reluctant as I felt I didn’t fit the traditional mold but once Zack showed me the concept, and that it would be both different from the great movies that Chris and Christian made but still in keeping with tradition I was excited. Doing something different and new is always tricky and part of the thrill and the risk is that initially it confounds expectations. The truth is, it’s the movie and the execution of it is what all the actors depend on and I believe in Zack’s vision.”
Warner Brothers CEO Kevin Tsujihara recently said that this new incarnation of Batman would be “tired and weary and seasoned and been doing it for awhile”. The outlet asked if that’s how he envisioned him as well, and what would he add to the description on the Bruce Wayne side of things? “Yes, Kevin described it aptly. I don’t want to go further because I want to be able to capitalize on what is new about this iteration by having it be a surprise to the audience.” Additionally, when asked if he has a favorite Batman, the Oscar winner responded, “It has been done very well many times before.”
By PJ McQuade. Artist’s note: “Tatooine has been infected with zombie stormtroopers. Who you gonna call? Michonne from The Walking Dead of course! Pay attention JJ Abrams. Given her prowess with a samurai blade, I always picture her with a lightsaber. We all know she’s a total badass, but now she has interstellar credentials. She even has a pelt of decapitated bounty hunter heads – Bossk, Dengar and she’s about to collect IG-88’s tin noggin. Michonne has this cloak of mystery around her so I imagined her as a bounty hunter to muddy the Jedi waters. I see her as a mercenary of sorts, not always towing the Jedi line note for note (perhaps there was a falling out) but she’s on the side of good when the sugar honey ice tea hits the fan, I think… Designed as the debut issue of her comic, here’s to wishing.”
