Suburbicon to premiere at Venice Film Fest and attracts Oscars talk

Post by Katiedot on Sat 22 Jul 2017, 09:48

Well, George has a good PR team and I believe every film he makes gets mentioned as an Oscars contender initially, however:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

’m still catching up on Emmy nominees and debating if I saw Dunkirk in the right format (you’re only supposed to watch it if you can see it projected on the side of an English naval destroyer while Tom Hardy rubs your shoulders, right?). But Oscar season details are already trickling out. Variety’s Nick Vivarelli reports that George Clooney’s crime comedy for Paramount, Suburbicon; Guillermo del Toro’s fantasy romance for Fox Searchlight, The Shape of Water; and Stephen Frears’s drama for Focus Features, Victoria & Abdul, will all make their world premieres at the Venice Film Festival, which kicks off the awards triumvirate of Venice/Telluride/Toronto on August 30.

That report comes in addition to what we already knew about Venice, that Alexander Payne’s Downsizing will open the fest, and Jane Fonda and Robert Redford will receive life-achievement awards there when their Netflix movie, Our Souls at Night, screens out of competition. Toronto has yet to unveil its slimmed-down slate—T.I.F.F. artistic director Cameron Bailey has said he’s reducing the Canadian fest’s normally bulging lineup by 20 percent this year, which seems eminently reasonable. And Telluride’s picks are kept secret up until the first group of cineastes climbs into a charter flight from LAX to Colorado’s Montrose Airport. One thing I keep reminding myself as I attempt to read the tea leaves on all these films: last year at this time I didn’t know anything about a little movie called Moonlight, and I couldn’t pronounce the name “Mahershala.” Here’s hoping this year’s festivals deliver an equally dazzling awards season surprise.

A couple of weeks ago MSN posted one of those "best of" lists from some site or other naming the best releases for the rest of the year. - the ones to watch for awards. "SUBURBICON' WASN'T ON IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sad  (I'd tell you which site posted it if I could remember - or find it again - but it's gone. Embarassed) I hope it was just one twelve-year-old's opinion and not the general consensus in the business. George needs a hit.

If Suburbicon makes it to Venice in Competition, it's guaranteed a hit. The official announcement is due next week.

There have been too many times when the actual performance didn't live up to the pre-release hype. Venice or not, I'm hoping for a solid hit at the box office, no matter what the critics say.

Money Monster was already a solid or at least decent hit at boxoffice.

Thanks Joanna. Terrific interview with Julianne and George. I don't think we have that one either.

Does anyone know is it the opening film....or further down the list...

The date will determine if I'm there or not...I plan to be in Padua also but I can switch around to a degree....fingers crossed....

I would love to give you a FIRST HAND account Jo...this will be my third encounter....Just to recap;

First encounter Venice FF ..... A vulnerable George...Suave, sophisticated the consummate  PRO....but I detected "vulnerability"......

Second encounter MM London.....an iratated  George ("almost" angry, but no one else noticed, just me and my third eye) George....

Third encounter.....?????????

Surprise me George....why not.....

WWHS - Fingers crossed for your third encounter. I think the oficial list comes out next week. I'm sure Sevens would know.

The official trailor to Suburbicon

Sorry I can't post a "picture version" so maybe someone else can.

I'm also confused as the trailor highlights 

Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin and I can't find them mentioned in the cast.

Can anyone clarify this please ??

Joanna, the video has nothing to do with 'Suburbicon'. The title is totally misleading. I think like Sevens said ... it is just a bunch of clips of other movies that someone posted on YouTube... Very Happy

Maybe they'll renew their vows while they're in Venice for the festival. Just a thought.
