Matt Damon Gets Roughed Up In New Suburbicon Trailer

There's still a lot of mystery surrounding Suburbicon, but one thing is certain: Matt Damon gets put through the wringer.

Directed by Damon's Ocean's Eleven co-star George Clooney and co-written with the Coen brothers, the film is set in the late '50s and definitely seems to have a darkly comedic Fargo vibe to it. However, Clooney insists it's not a comedy.

Damon plays Gardner Lodge, a seemingly normal middle-class businessman who lives in the idyllic community of Suburbicon with his wife (Julianne Moore), their son (Tony Espinosa), and his wife's sister (also Julianne Moore). But when the mob starts asking about money that Lodge owes, he loses the buttoned-up facade. 

The Hollywood Reporter points out the the movie also features a subplot that's based on real events that took place in Levittown, Pennsylvania, in 1957., During that incident, an all-white suburb began rioting and using intimidation in an attempt to force out the first black family to move into the neighborhood. But it's still not clear how that plot figures into the other storyline, and it's not explored in the new trailer.

Suburbicon hits theaters Oct. 27. Meanwhile, find out why Damon has turned down so many huge roles.
