New posters have landed online for two star-studded ensembles that are headed to theaters later this year. Besides teasing the stellar cast, there’s really not much to the full theatrical poster for George Clooney’s new directorial effort The Monuments Men, but we do see Matt Damon flanked by Clooney, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban, and Hugh Bonneville. Based on a true story, the film centers on an unlikely World War II platoon made up of museum directors, curators, and art historians tasked by FDR with going into Germany and rescuing artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves before they are lost forever. The film also stars Cate Blanchett and opens in theaters on December 20th.
Additionally, the first poster for Jon Turtletaub’s (National Treasure) comedy Last Vegas also highlights its ensemble, as we get a look at Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, and Kevin Kline laughing it up as a quartet of friends who get together to celebrate a bachelor party in Vegas. The film opens on November 1st. Hit the jump to check out both posters.

Here’s the synopsis for The Monuments Men:
Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, The Monuments Men is an action-thriller focusing on an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked by FDR with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. It would be an impossible mission: with the art trapped behind enemy lines, and with the German army under orders to destroy everything as the Reich fell, how could these guys – seven museum directors, curators, and art historians, all more familiar with Michelangelo than the M-1 – possibly hope to succeed? But as the Monuments Men, as they were called, found themselves in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1000 years of culture, they would risk their lives to protect and defend mankind’s greatest achievements.

Here’s the synopsis for Last Vegas:
Starring four legends like you’ve never seen them before, LAST VEGAS tells the story of Billy, Paddy, Archie and Sam (played by Academy-Award winners Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline), best friends since childhood. When Billy, the group’s sworn bachelor, finally proposes to his thirty-something (of course) girlfriend, the four head to Las Vegas with a plan to stop acting their age and relive their glory days. However, upon arriving, the four quickly realize that the decades have transformed Sin City and tested their friendship in ways they never imagined. The Rat Pack may have once played the Sands and Cirque du Soleil may now rule the Strip, but it’s these four who are taking over Vegas.
