Art Heist at the Kunsthal Museum in Rotterdam

Last night in an epic heist of blockbuster proportion, seven paintings were stolen from the walls of the Kunsthal Museum in Rotterdam. The bold thief snagged hundreds of millions of dollars worth of paintings by Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Claude Monet, Paul Gauguin, Lucien Freud, and Meyer de Haan, leaving gaping holes in the museum’s 20th anniversary exhibition and a sick feeling in the stomachs of museum curators across the world.

The joke’s on the Thomas Crowne imitating thief however. The valuable works, including “Harlequin Head,” 1971, a painting made by Pablo Picasso just two years before his death, have all been registered as stolen and could never be sold on the secondary market.

The important questions that remain are who did it, how did they do it, and when will the movie come out in theaters so I can watch it??
