As has been proven in cinema past, George Clooney and the Coens are a match made in heaven. In a new project, their collaboration is a bit different. Following our first look at Clooney’s next directorial effort Suburbicon, scripted by his Hail, Caesar! directors, the debut trailer has now arrived for the darkly comedic film that stars Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Noah Jupe, and Oscar Isaac.
“Well, it’s tricky not to give too much away. It takes place in 1959 on the East Coast. A suburb like Levittown, Pennsylvania,” Clooney tells THR. “Matt Damon and Julianne Moore get into a great deal of trouble and make some terrible decisions. Oscar Isaac comes in and sets into motion a series of pretty horrendous crimes. Basically, Oscar gets to come in and steal the movie.”
Check out the trailer below for the film set to stop by TIFF and Venice ahead of a fall release.
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.
