Film Trailers: CALVARY
After really enjoying and admiring writer-director John Michael McDonagh's first feature, the hilarious and blunt The Guard, I am very excited to see his second feature Calvary. Starring one of his The Guard stars Brendan Gleeson, it follows Gleeson as a good Catholic priest whose life is threatened and he must fight off the forces of evil and temptation. It appears to have a comedic and dramatic tone to it and will most likely be something a little more. You can tell the depth is there and this film received great notices out of this year's Sundance Film Festival. I cannot wait to see this film. It also stars Chris O'Dowd, Kelly Reilly, Domhnall Gleeson, M. Emmett Walsh and Isaach De Bankolé. The film will be released on August 1st. Enjoy! And if you have not seen The Guard check it out.
