“’Suburbicon,’ starring Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Josh Brolin, and Oscar Isaac, looks set to be the second Paramount picture to launch from the Lido this year, after “Downsizing.” The studio has scheduled an October 27 U.S. release for “Suburbicon,” a black comedy written by the Coen brothers about a picture-perfect suburban family that descends into a spiral of betrayal, adultery, and blackmail after being subjected to a home-invasion robbery gone awry.”

“Venice runs from Aug. 30 to Sept. 9.”


I hope this Venice Film Festival premiere happens after Oscar finishes his run of “Hamlet” so that he can attend. 


Everything you touch turns to shit. You’re like King Midas’ idiot brother.


“It takes real, born-with-it charisma to eclipse Channing Tatum in a film in which he tap dances. But “eclipse” is somewhat misleading. Alden Ehrenreich emerges as the clear MVP of the Coen brothers’ recent hooray-for-Hollywood spectacle Hail, Caesar! in a performance that doesn’t have a spotlight-stealing urge to be found. As Hobie Doyle, the gunslinging studio sweetheart who receives an uncomfortable transformation into debonair leading man, Ehrenreich is the only actor in this blue-ribbon ensemble to fully delineate a complete character within a series of diffuse screwball set-pieces. His timing is impeccable, never more so than in that killer “Would that it were so simple” tête-à-tête with Ralph Fiennes. But it’s the soft and adorably unassuming quality that Ehrenreich lends Hobie that lets the Coens’ moviemaking paean achieve actual movie magic.” — Matthew Eng
