The Monuments Men, director George Clooney's tribute to the Allied Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives section and their efforts to rescue and preserve art and European culture during World War II, comes to Blu-ray Combo pack, DVD and Digital on May 20th.
The action thriller stars Clooney alongside Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban and Hugh Bonneville in a screenplay inspired by and adapted from Robert Edsel and Bret Witter's history of the men and women who fought to preserve Europe's monuments and recover and return thousands of pieces of art stolen by the Nazis.
The Blu-ray™ Combo Pack is loaded with bonus materials, including two all-new featurettes that highlight the making of the film. The first, “George Clooney’s Mission,” features interviews with Clooney, as well as the rest of the cast, on the elements that went into completing The Monuments Men. The second featurette, “Marshaling the Cast,” features a cast discussion on the real men and women they brought to life on screen.
Exclusively available on the Blu-ray are two additional exclusive featurettes. “In Their Own Words” is a unique piece that offers the most comprehensive and direct insight into the hearts and minds of these heroes, featuring an interview with Harry Ettlinger, one of the last surviving members of the Monuments Men. “A Woman Amongst the Monuments Men” features a discussion with Cate Blanchett on the historic, wartime female character she plays in the film (Claire Simone).
