There are a few movies still to come this year. Yep, do not count 2017 as over when it comes to the box office. You have yet to see Suburbicon!

Directed by George Clooney, and starring Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, and Oscar Isaac the film definitely takes a new twist on revenge!

Suburbicon is a peaceful, idyllic suburban community with affordable homes and manicured lawns…the perfect place to raise a family, and in the summer of 1959, the Lodge family is doing just that. But the tranquil surface masks a disturbing reality, as husband and father Gardner Lodge (Matt Damon) must navigate the town’s dark underbelly of betrayal, deceit, and violence. This is a tale of very flawed people making very bad choices. This is Suburbicon!

We are too psyched about this film! Anything with Matt Damon is a “must-see” event for us. Personally, we also love movies where we see gangsters getting what is coming to them from local heroes. Recently the cast attended the Los Angeles premiere for the film. Check out a few pictures below!
