Suburbicon, the upcoming black comedy from director George Clooney, will hit theaters sooner than expected. Paramount announced the film will now hit theaters on October 27. It was originally slated to premiere on November 3. The new release date puts the film on the same opening weekend as Jigsaw, Lionsgate’s Saw spinoff, and the post-Iraq War drama Thank You for Your Service from DreamWorks/Universal.
Suburbicon, which was written by Joel and Ethan Coen, is being compared to their breakout film Blood Simple. The all-star movie stars Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Oscar Isaac, True Detective’s Woody Harrelson, and Josh Brolin.
The film centers on the Lodge family who live in a suburban community “in the quiet family town of Suburbicon, where the best and worst of humanity is hilariously reflected through the deeds of seemingly ordinary people,” according to the synopsis. “When a home invasion turns deadly, a picture-perfect family turns to blackmail, revenge and betrayal.”
The last film Clooney directed was The Monuments Men. He also directed Leatherheads, The Ides of March, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind and Good Night and Good Luck.
Suburbicon will open in theaters on October 27.
