After his last directorial effort The Ides of March went down well, George Clooney has returned to directing for another stab at the Oscars with The Monument’s Men.

Looking like a cross between Inglourious Basterds and Ocean’s Eleven, The Monument’s Men tracks the hunt to retrieve stolen art works from Nazis before Hitler destroys them.

The film stars Clooney, Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray and John Goodman.
