A little story I found talking with Grant that includes the new trailer (of which I did not include).  Hope it's okay to put it here.

George Clooney Leaves Cynicism Behind in the New ‘The Monuments Men’ Trailer

Matt McDaniel 3 hours ago  Movie Talk

George Clooney: actor, producer, writer, director, and secret optimist.

You might think, "Of course he is! What could a guy as beloved and successful as him have to be pessimistic about?" But many of the films he's been involved with have explored the darker side of crime, politics, and global relations. And after directing and starring as a corrupt presidential candidate in 2011's "The Ides of March," Clooney decided to leave cynicism behind for a hopeful and inspiring story.

The result is "The Monuments Men," the true account of a mismatched band of experts and historians who went behind enemy lines in World War II to save priceless works of art plundered by the Nazis. Watch the exclusive new trailer for the film also starring Matt Damon, Bill Murray and John Goodman, then keep reading to learn what drew Clooney and his producing partner Grant Heslov to this untold WWII tale.

George Clooney and Grant Heslov met over 30 years ago when they were both struggling actors (the story goes, Clooney borrowed $200 for his first professional headshots and never paid him back). They've been producing partners for a decade, culminating in their joint Oscar win for "Argo" last year. But the roots of "The Monuments Men" began after they wrapped Clooney's previous directorial effort, "The Ides of March."

Speaking by phone to Yahoo Movies, Heslov said that after finishing the  drama about the corruption of  modern politics, they decided to look for a project that lacked any trace of cynicism. They also aspired to  work on a bigger scale than they ever had before. And that's when Heslov brought up a book he had read: "The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History," by Robert M. Edsel.

Edsel had researched the largely forgotten story of the Allied Forces' Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives (MFAA) program, a small commission dedicated to preserving landmarks, architecture and fine art pieces that were endangered by the ravages of war throughout Europe. Most of the servicemen in the program were middle-aged scholars with little to no military experience. But they went to the front lines to recover important artwork that had been plundered by the Nazis and keep historical buildings from being demolished.

In addition to directing, Clooney plays Lt. Comdr. George Stout, a WWI vet who was one of the first art experts appointed to the MFAA. He and his men landed on the beach in Normandy and crossed Europe chasing after antiquities. Stout was joined by 2nd Lt James Rorimer (played in the movie by Matt Damon), an expert in medieval art who bonded with a French spy (Cate Blanchett) to rescue stolen masterpieces.

"It was a period of time in our history before all the cynicism," Heslov said about the film's WWII setting. "It was a war, I think, that everybody believed in, and it was right. And we were on the right side." And Heslov noted that even 70 years later, there are still pieces of that history yet to be discovered. He said, "There generally are a lot of stories buried in those times, and I feel like we found one that wasn't a rehashing. There really was something new."

Heslov admits, though, that while Clooney was committed to telling an inspirational story, it didn't stop him from upholding his reputation as a notorious prankster. Even being the director of a major studio production didn't keep him from causing trouble. "Same pranks, same guy," Heslov said, though the added responsibility did slow him down a bit. "I think he probably had a little less time because directing is a lot more time-intensive than acting. When you're acting, you have a lot of time in your trailer and days when you don't work. When you're directing, it's 24/7."

Heslov said there was no particular target of his horseplay on the "Monuments Men" set. "He's pretty equal opportunity. We shot in the snow a bunch, so there were a lot of snowball ambushes that we both did to anybody we could find."

"The Monuments Men" rolls into theaters on December 18. You can find out more about the real MFAA at MonumentsMenFoundation.org.

I think it looks really interesting, very promising, movie you want to go and see.

It had more than the trailer I´ve seen before.

One thing, it caught my eye on the first trailer and now on this one, is a scene where someone is climbing the wooden wall and clear blue sky on a background. Maybe just me but I get a feeling it doesn´t belong in there, the overall athmosphere.

I think that is where the men are going through basic training (as George was explaining to Matt while at the bar). When I went through basic training, we had to climb a wooden wall like that. I believe it's John Goodman coming over the wall.

oh basic training like in th army? It´s a scene I have seen before, many times. I never went to army myself, but if I do it will be Légion étrangère, in the French Foreign Legion. Still an option Laughing

This one is longer & seems more in depth.

Some mild overtones of the Great Escape, distantly remote similarity to assembling the men like in Ocean's 11, comical element to lighten the tone (DuJardin about Paris; Damon on mines; Damon to Clooney on ladder...in bar).
More importantly, it really draws attention to the film plot: Hitler's desire to wipe out cultures by destroying the art & the historical significance of what the Monuments Men prevented & achieved.

The cinematography looks brilliant too.

Imagine critics review the film a work of art in itself.
So much attention to detail to recreate.
Historical accuracies, location, props, set design...
Then the musical score.
Masterpiece.... Cool 

There's only a coincidental slight nod to Ocean's 11, drawing a parallel of assembling/ recruiting a group of men or a unit.  
And that's not even intentional. Based on facts.

The more trailers I see, the more I get excited to see the film.

I forgot to add writing too.
Oh, my!
George's idea from conception to adapt book to film.
Maybe some ghostwriters contributed too.
But George & Grant would oversee it, if not involved in the majority.  Wink 

I think he spent most of summer 2012 working on developing it.
Researching....brainstorming....creating.....
