#TRAILERCHEST: Damon, Clooney and The Coen Brothers get violent in Suburbicon

"A mobster got killed a couple of days ago." "I'm sorry for his loss." "Of life? Yeah, I'm guessing he probably is, too..."

Welcome to #TrailerChest, where we're taking a sneak peek at the brand new trailer for Suburbicon.


Plot's it all about? Damon stars as loving father and husband Gardner Lodge in the idyllic town of Suburbicon in the summer of 1959.

When his wife is violently murdered during a home invasion, he asks his sister Margaret (Julianne Moore) to move in with them to look after his son, while he tries to untangle his family from the violent retributions of the local gangsters, who seem to be fronted by the charismatic Roger (Oscar Isaac).

While that all sounds very dangerous and thriller-y, it is actually being pitched as a comedy, co-written by none other than The Coen Brothers (The Big Lebowski, No Country For Old Men), who shared scripting duties with the movie's director, who is none other than George Clooney, returning to behind-the-camera work for the first time since 2014's The Monuments Men.

Released right in the middle of Oscar-season, this is either aiming high for some awards attention, or hoping to get some counter-programming money, as it hits cinemas one week after massive blockbuster Justice League arrives.

Starring: Matt Damon, Julianne Moore and Oscar Isaac

Directed by: George Clooney


Irish release date: 24 November
