First Look at Matt Damon and Julianne Moore in George Clooney’s Coens-Scripted ‘Suburbicon’

Written by on July 25, 2017 


Announced as a North American premiere at Toronto International Film Festival today, it likely means George Clooney’s next directorial effort Suburbicon will first debut at Venice Film Festival. Ahead of the debut trailer soon, the first look has now arrived for the film that stars Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Noah Jupe, and Oscar Isaac (as well as another major cast member not mentioned officially by Paramount, but can be easily found, though we’ll respect their want not to spoil whatever his involvement may indicate).

“This was a film they [the Coens] kept trying to get made for quite a few years,” Clooney explains to Yahoo! Movies. “I was offered to play the role that Oscar is playing back in 2001. There are some similar themes to Fargo and Burn After Reading. Hapless characters making really bad decisions. The original script took place in the 1980s and didn’t have the Mayer family as neighbors so it was more of a comedy-thriller. We [Clooney and producing partner Grant Heslov] thought we’d like to make something a little less funny and a lot angrier. It seems like a good time for a film that feels angry.”

Check out the new images above and below, along with the official synopsis.

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 (Matt 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. This is Suburbicon.


Suburbicon opens on October 27.
