The first trailer for the Coen Brothers  co-written, George Clooney directed Suburbicon has arrived and it has Coens stamped all over it.

Set in 1959, Suburbicon stars Matt Damon, Julianne Moore and Oscar Isaac in a dark crime comedy which has Matt Damon down as a perfect family man on the outside who gets mixed up with all the wrong people.

The trailer has hints of a Stepford Wives type tone as a blonde haired Julianne Moore moves in with Gardner Lodge (Matt Damon) to help him take care of his son after his wife was murdered. Taking matters into his own hands to seek revenge on those who dare break the peace and tranquillity of their sleepy little suburban town, Damon faces a number of beatings and threats from all angles before he finally gets his hands on one mobster, but his problems seem to only just begin.

Clooney is a regular collaborator with the Coen brothers who starred in their last project Hail, Caeser! in 2016. Suburbicon see’s Clooney back in the director’s chair for the first time since The Monuments Men back in 2014.


The film is due for an October 2017 release.

Suburbicon 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.
