The late-year releases keep on pushing out new, more informative, trailers. George Clooney looks to take a page out of Ben Affleck's book as he stars in and directs the World War II drama The Monuments Men. The film follows a group of art enthusiasts, painters and sculptors who leave the safety of the United States and travel into the heart of Europe to help recover stolen art from the Nazi's before the end of the war. With Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, John Goodman, Bill Murray and Jean Dujardin on board, The Monuments Men appears to have all the makings of a Best Picture contender.
Silver Linings Playbook took last year's awards season by storm, and director David O. Russell returns quickly with his newest project, American Hustle. Boasting an all-star cast including Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence, American Hustle centers around a pair of con artists who are forced to work for the FBI to help bring down the mafia. The feature's newest trailer is nothing short of excellent, and O. Russell's latest offering looks to give hope to 2013's end-of-year releases.
