What do you get when the idyllic American family has a run in with the mob, or at least when one of them does? You get murder, gore, intensity, and a bit of dry humor to stitch it all together.
A trailer for the new film Suburbicon dropped today and there are some big names associated with the movie. From Matt Damon and Julianne Moore to George Clooney and Grant Helsov, the film is sure to be a smashing success.
The premise of the movie is as follows.
‘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.’
After an ‘infomercial’ type scene, in the beginning, showing Suburbicon as the picture perfect place to have the picture perfect life; the trailer quickly descends into a type of hell where the mundane meets the mob. Through it all, Matt Damon holds character in a button up and taped together glasses, bringing that ‘ordinary guy’ thing back into focus.
Damon was thrilled to work on the film for the plot but also because he’d be working with George Clooney in the process. We’re happy to see the two paired up again as well.
‘I’ll do anything with Clooney. I think we’ve done seven movies together now, and he’s just a great director. I love all the movies that he’s directed, and it just makes it a really easy choice when he calls.’
