Suburbicon Trailer - Matt Damon

Directing duo Joel & Ethan Coen love bringing a little dark comedy to the big screen, and that’s exactly what they’re going to get with Suburbicon.

The directors behind No Country for Old Men and The Big Lebowski aren’t behind the camera this time, but instead, they’ve let their former leading man George Clooney take over the directing duties for a script they wrote. The result appears to be a twisted comedy of murder in the suburbs with a promising blend of quirky laughter and brutal violence.

Watch the Suburbicon trailer below to see what we’re talking about. Read More »

SUBURBICON

George Clooney and Joel and Ethan Coen have been working together for 17 wonderful years. The filmmakers often turn one of our most charismatic, confident and thoughtful actors into a complete and utter buffoon. For years, they’ve made Clooney play some of their most appealing dim-witted characters. In their latest collaboration, he ain’t playing no moron. In fact, he’s playing nobody in their latest collaboration. With Suburbicon, Clooney is directing a script from the Coen Brothers.

Below, check out the Suburbicon first look.

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs

Earlier this year, we learned that filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen had become the latest Hollywood directors who were making the jump to the small screen when they announced they’d be writing and directing a new TV series. We knew the title (The Ballad of Buster Scruggs), the genre (a Western, which is something they’re familiar with through films like True Grit and No Country for Old Men), and that they’d be collaborating with Annapurna Television for the limited series, which was described as an integrated TV and theatrical experience.

Exactly how that last part will work is still up in the air, but at least now we have some newly-released plot details for the show.

Coen brothers tv series

Like so many other esteemed filmmakers in recent years, Joel and Ethan Coen are making the move to television. The brothers are teaming up with Annapurna Television for The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, a limited series that they wrote and will direct. Intriguingly, this won’t be just a television series — the idea is that the entire project will be some combination of television and (theatrically released) film.

When did The Big Lebowski 2 become a thing we talk about? Not only that, but a thing we ask the Coen Brothers about? 2009 is about as far back as I could go to find the filmmaking duo shooting down the idea of a sequel to The Big Lebowski. With their latest film opening in theaters this Friday, Hail, Caesar!, once again they’ve been asked about the imaginary project.

Hail Caesar Trailer

If you’re a Coen Brothers fan, then you’re probably already excited about the directing and writing duo’s new film coming next month, the comedy Hail, Caesar! starring a cavalcade of great talent. We’ve already seen one trailer showing off the quirky story that takes place in the Golden Age of Hollywood, and now a new trailer shows us even more. But rather than taking the traditional trailer route, they basically use an entire, hilarious scene to sell the movie with a brief montage at the end. And it’s just as fantastic as you’d hope.

George Clooney in Hail Caesar

2015 officially ends in a couple of days, but it’s hard to mind too much when 2016 looks so promising. For starters, next year brings Hail, Caesar!, the Coen Brothers‘ first film since 2013’s superb Inside Llewyn Davis. The directors’ names alone were enough to put this one on our radar, but the first trailer catapulted it right to the top of our most-anticipated lists.

Set during the Golden Age of Hollywood, the star-studded comedy follows studio fixer Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin) over the course of one very busy day. When movie star Baird Whitlock (George Clooney) is kidnapped by a mysterious organization calling itself The Future, it falls on Eddie to rescue him. The first Hail, Caesar! poster and a new Hail, Caesar! TV spot have just been released, and you can see them both after the jump.  Read More »
