George Clooney in The Monuments Men: Stealing Art Back from the Nazis

Originally posted 10/11/2013 11:30AM

After an end-of-summer smash as an astronaut in Gravity, George Clooney will be back onscreen for the holidays, this time in dashing military uniform, saving the world from the Nazis and priceless art from Hitler's grasp.

He gets some help in this feel-good war drama from Bill Murray, John Goodman and Matt Damon. But it's Cate Blanchett, looking pristine in World War II period garb, who appears to steal the show – at least as far as things look in the newly released trailer for The Monuments Men, set to open Dec. 18.

"How can I help you steal our stolen art?" ponders a gamine and decidedly French-acting Blanchett in the film, co-written and directed by Clooney.

"The cheeks kinda give it away, right?" his mom, Carrie Holmquist, jokes to PEOPLE. In honor of the third installment (the last of the series, promises director Todd Phillips), we give you a trio of little known, fun facts about the littlest member of the franchise.

John Goodman: How I Lost 100 Lbs. – and Counting

John Goodman is no longer a couch potato.

"I know it sounds sappy, but it was a waste," the 58-year-old actor tells PEOPLE. "It takes a lot of creative energy to sit on your ass and figure out what you're going to eat next ... I wanted to live life better."

Mission accomplished: The Treme actor has lost more than 100 lbs. thanks to his healthy new lifestyle. He quit drinking three years ago and hired Mackie Shilstone – a health coach who has trained many athletes including tennis player Serena Williams. Now Goodman has cut sugar from his diet and works out six days a week. "I'm breaking a sweat but I'm not going nuts," he says.
