Star Wars: The Last Jedi is less than a month away, and new details are being revealed everyday.

Suburbicon Review

(This review originally ran during our coverage of the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival. Suburbicon is in theaters today.)

It’s not often that one film attempts so many different things and manages to make none of them work, but gosh darn it, Suburbicon somehow makes such blundering seem easy. Director George Clooney packs a whole lot of ideas into his tale of the underbelly of 1950s suburbia, but they’re really bad, lazy ideas, which is a shame because Suburbicon has quite the pedigree.

The biggest problem with Suburbicon is that it’s really two different movies cobbled together. One movie is a dark, farcical Coen Brothers-style crime movie. Which makes sense, since the Coens have a writing credit on the film. But then there’s the other movie, one that deals with racism and white supremacy. This is an element of the film that absolutely none of the advertising even hints at, which is kind of strange.

You really shouldn’t hold a movie’s advertising against it, but the trailers for Suburbicon make it look like a wacky dark comedy about a family man in the 50s fighting back against his tormentors. That’s not even close to what this movie is about, and the fact that the trailers tried to sell it as that hints at a movie that folks don’t know how to sell.

Ex Machina director Alex Garland is close to releasing his next film, Annihilation, a highly-anticipated (especially by me) adaptation of the first book of The Southern Reach Trilogy. With a killer cast that includes Natalie PortmanJennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, and Oscar Isaac and the promise of something strange and beautiful, this could be the next surreal sci-fi classic that has everybody talking. Save for a few set photos, there’s been very little released from Garland’s new film, but now we have our first real look via an official image. See the Annihilation first look below.

Suburbicon Trailer - Matt Damon

This fall brings a reteaming of filmmaking duo Joel & Ethan Coen and superstar George Clooney, but not in the capacity that we’re used to see them collaborate. Instead, Suburbicon sees the Coen brothers only writing the script, and George Clooney is directing without starring in the movie himself, which is something he’s never done before. Now a new Suburbicon trailer has arrived online featuring some praise following the film’s debut at the Venice Film Festival this past week. Read More »

A new international trailer for the Coen brothers-penned, Clooney-directed film about Suburbia Gone Wrong has arrived and it features star Matt Damon getting his hands — and face — bloodier than ever.

Carrie Fisher The Last Jedi

In the Star Wars: The Last Jedi behind-the-scenes sizzle reel that debuted at this year’s D23 Expo, Carrie Fisher said the upcoming sequel is powerful because “it’s about family.” Sadly, her words have taken on a whole new meaning in the wake of her sudden death at the end of last year: it will now be about watching the final time this actress – who, for many fans, has felt like a part of their pop culture family for 30 years – steps into the role of Princess-turned-General Leia, one of the most iconic sci-fi heroes ever conceived.

In Entertainment Weekly’s latest barrage of Star Wars news, there’s a story about the bond Leia shares with Oscar Isaac‘s Resistance pilot Poe Dameron, her impact on his growth as a leader, and the vulnerable place we find the Resistance at the start of the new film.

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 »
