The initial trailer for Suburbicon offers us an introductory peek into the life of Gardner Lodge (Matt Damon) and his quaint suburban life, coupled with some not-so-charming encounters.

Suburbicon, reported to have been originally written in 1986 by the Coen brothers, is directed by George Clooney. With a film score composed by Alexandre Desplat (The Grand Budapest Hotel), cinematography by Robert Elswit (Good Night, and Good Luck), and edited by Stephen Mirrione (Ides of March) – all of whom have worked director Clooney previously.

The video opens with some men breaking into Gardner Lodge’s (Matt Damon) house, and a buttoned-down Lodge taking the law into his own hands. Things get quite chaotic and messy as Gardner Lodge seeks vengeance on the criminals residing in the shadows of his tranquil home town.

With the additional cast of Julianne Moore, Josh Brolin, Oscar Isaac, and a young Noah Jupe – this flick is sure to be a bloody nail-biter with a few laughs thrown in all while trying to keep a straight face.

The global premiere of Suburbicon has been selected to be held at the International Film Festival in Venice in late August and will open in Australia November 2nd.
