Monuments Men

monuments-men-book-coverHere’s the synopsis for the source material, Robert M. Edsel‘s non-fiction novel The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History:

At the same time Adolf Hitler was attempting to take over the western world, his armies were methodically seeking and hoarding the finest art treasures in Europe. The Fuehrer had begun cataloguing the art he planned to collect as well as the art he would destroy: “degenerate” works he despised.

In a race against time,behind enemy lines, often unarmed, a special force of American and British museum directors, curators, art historians, and others, called the Momuments Men, risked their lives scouring Europe to prevent the destruction of thousands of years of culture.

Focusing on the eleven-month period between D-Day and V-E Day, this fascinating account follows six Monuments Men and their impossible mission to save the world’s great art from the Nazis. [Amazon]

The Call

Formerly The Hive, this thriller centers on an emergency phone line operator (Berry) confronting a killer from her past in order to save a young girls life.  The Call will open opposite the Don Scardino magician comedy, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone starring Steve Carrell, Steve Buscemi, Jim Carrey and Olivia Wilde.

    How is October 18 “more thematically appropriate”? Appropriate would be releasing it around the time of senior prom. Just because it’s a horror movie it needs a Halloween release?
