Suburbicon trailer stills 294570
I didn’t really have an impression of George Clooney’s new film, Suburbicon. I knew Matt Damon was in it, I knew Joel and Ethan Coen co-wrote the script (with Clooney and his partner, Grant Heslov). But other than that, it wasn’t really on my radar. Well, the first trailer just came out and MESSAGE RECEIVED, Suburbicon is now on my radar. It’s set in 1950’s Suburbia, that perfect slice of Americana everyone keeps wanting to go back to even though it was a pretty nightmarish era full of legalized racism, feminine oppression, and bomb drills at school. That seems to be what Clooney et al are tapping into—the surface is picture-perfect, but the reality is something else altogether.

Damon stars as a dude in debt to the mob, so they kill his wife. It looks like this sets off a chain reaction of ever-increasing violence, which is definitely a Coen Brothers touch. That’s a huge part of their storytelling arsenal—the inevitable escalation of violence and its uncontainable nature are the fodder for some of their best movies, like No Country For Old Men and Blood Simple. But it also uses one of Clooney’s favorite things, which is making Matt Damon play a nerd. (Lainey: Linus Caldwell!) Matt Damon plays a great nerd! (The Informant is WAY underrated.) He’s in full nerd-dad mode here, with glasses and a stupid tie and that Dad Face he makes to convey consternation. (I imagine getting a dad dress-down from Matt Damon involves a lot of “I’m not angry, I’m just disappointed.”) Plus there’s Oscar Isaac, and Julianne Moore crushing pills with a rolling pin, which I love. Totally on board with this movie.

Suburbicon will screen at TIFF and Venice, and given its pedigree, it’s also an early tip to be an Oscar contender. It does, however, remind me somewhat of Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. That film will also be at TIFF and also has an Oscar pedigree. I wonder how much room the Academy will have for “dark crime comedy”? It’s not even September and we’re already seeing a STRONG field of contenders emerge this year. If even half these movies live up to expectations, we’re in for a fun award season.

PS: The final shot of this trailer is exquisite and whoever cut it should get a blue ribbon.

Haha! I can see why Lainey loves the scene in this trailer!

Here's Deadline's take on it:

The George Clooney-directed Suburbicon was announced earlier this morning as a world premiere competition entry at the Venice Film Festival. Matt Damon stars as a family man dealing with the aftermath of a deadly home invasion in the quiet titular town. And, yes, it’s also a comedy. See for yourself above in the first trailer which Paramount dropped today.

The official synopsis reads: “Suburbicon is a peaceful, idyllic suburban community with affordable homes and manicured lawns… the perfect place to raise a family, and in the summer of 1959, the Lodge family is doing just that. But the tranquil surface masks a disturbing reality, as husband and father Gardner Lodge (Damon) must navigate the town’s dark underbelly of betrayal, deceit, and violence. This is a tale of very flawed people making very bad choices.”

Joel and Ethan Coen wrote the script with Clooney and Grant Heslov. It’s been a hot property since it came on the market, selling to Paramount for domestic and closing worldwide deals in Berlin 2016.

Oscar Isaac and Julianne Moore also star in the Black Bear Pictures-backed production that’s produced by Clooney, Heslov and Teddy Schwarzman.

Paramount, which will have a big presence in Venice this year, has set an October 27 domestic release. Offshore markets are currently lined up after that.

When it leaves the Lido, Suburbicon will head to Toronto.

I wasn't really all that excited by Suburbicon, but having seen the trailer, I think this will be on my 'get to see it at some point' list after all.

It looks interesting, tight and fast paced.

I like Black Comedy.

But I usually like anything that
George is connected to and hope that this one
will make the grade.

I look forward to your review Katie as I'll 
have to wait for the DVD.


BTW...Off topic.
I've just watched the first series of FARGO 
on Amazon Firestick.
Very very gory but still funny, in a horrific kind of way.

Suburbican looks similar.

Sorry to stay off topic.....no more now.  hidingbehindsofa


Sevens I'm glad you thought Suberbicon reminded you of Fargo too,
a brilliant series. Billy Bob Thornton....WOW Hoorah!

And it's produced by the Cahan brothers, 
so obviously a link there.

I look forward to your review of Surbicon.  flower
