It's hard to believe that in an alternate universe, we would all be talking about the Oscar chances of George Clooney's The Monuments Men right now. Instead, the film got delayed and we're left with the "what if" of an even more crowded race.
I'm sure on some level Clooney is relieved to not be in the thick of it this year, though this newest trailer does seem to be full-on Oscar bait. That cast (Clooney, Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, John Goodman, Bill Murray and more)? Taking on Nazis? No brainer.
The Monuments Men will now be released in February 2014 (7th for the US, 14th for the UK).
