Sundance Trailer Watch: John Michael McDonagh’s Calvary

Yesterday, it was announced that Calvary, the new film from The Guard writer/director John Michael McDonagh, will make its world premiere at Sundance next month. Sooner than expected, the trailer for the movie has emerged, and it’s immediately apparent that this is a more somber and understated affair than The Guard, which was irreverent and caustic, much in the manner of the work of McDonagh’s older brother, Martin. Brendan Gleeson, also the star of The Guard, here plays a priest facing his last days in a small Irish town after being told by someone whose confession he is taking that he will be killed within the week.
