Watch: New Official US Trailer for 'The Guard' with Brendan Gleeson
"I'm Irish sure, racism is part of my culture!" Sony Pictures Classics has debuted the official US trailer via Apple for the Irish indie film The Guard, starring the likes of Brendan Gleeson as an "unorthodox Irish policeman with a confrontational personality." The cast also includes Don Cheadle as the FBI agent he teams up with to investigate drug-smuggling, as well as Liam Cunningham, Mark Strong, Rory Keenan and Sarah Greene. We featured an early international trailer for this a few weeks ago, but this is Sony Classics' official trailer in high def. Not as funny, but it still looks good. The accents are pretty heavy, so be prepared.
Watch the official US trailer for John Michael McDonagh's The Guard, in high from Apple:
Unorthodox small-town Irish cop Sergeant Boyle (Brendan Gleeson) with a confrontational personality is teamed up with an uptight FBI agent (Don Cheadle) to investigate an international drug-smuggling ring.
The Guard is both written and directed by British filmmaker John Michael McDonagh, brother of Martin McDonagh, making his feature directorial debuted after a short titled The Second Death. This premiered as one of the opening films at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Sony Pictures Classics picked it up for release and will be bringing The Guard to limited theaters starting July 29th this summer. Look good?
The quote's "I'm Irish sure, racist is part of my culture". In Ireland, "sure" is injected into a sentence much like "you know?" or "yeah?".

Gleeson could do this sort of light touch comic role with dramatic undertones in his sleep, which i mean as a high compliment. good to see also that, as an American character, Cheadle's not inflicting us with his Dick Van Dyke impression from the Ocean's films. the trailer makes it look like Gleeson and Cheadle are playing off each other with a genuine spark, as joshp says, just like Gleeson did with Farrell in In Bruges. colour me expectant.
