The Coen brothers and George Clooney team up again for the Suburbicon trailer

The trailer for Suburbicon, the new film written by George Clooney, Grant Heslov, and the Coen brothers, and directed by Clooney, is a bit tonally disjointed. For roughly the first 40 seconds, it comes across like yet another broad satire of white people in the suburbs, a darkly comic and snide putdown of Pleasantville-esque tropes. But then the gangsters start to come out of the woodwork, some backstory involving Matt Damon’s buttoned-up businessmen and mob money is suggested, and it all starts to look a lot more like, well, a Coen brothers movie.

Have a watch for yourself.
