STORY: George Clooney to Direct, Star in WWII Drama 

The clip balances between lighthearted quips between the leads and a based-on-a-true-story narrative. 

"They tell us, 'who cares about art,'" narrates Clooney. "But they're wrong, it is the exact reason that we're fighting -- for culture, for way of life." 

The project was adapted from the book The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History by Robert M. Edsel and Bret Witter

The film is set to be released in December.
