Following a premiere at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, Calvary, the latest film from John Michael McDonagh (The Guard) is coming to theaters late this summer, and the theatrical trailer has just arrived. Brendan Gleeson, who also starred in The Guard, leads the film as Father James, a good priest in a small town who only wants to help members of his church with their various scurrilous moral and even amusing problems. However, for some reason he still feels some kind of dark forces closing in on his life. This looks like another dark sort of comedy in the same vein as The Guard, but maybe not as good. Watch!

Here's the theatrical trailer for John Michael McDonagh's Calvary, originally from Apple:

Calvary is written and directed by John Michael McDonagh (The Guard), brother of In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths director Martin McDonagh. The film follows Brendan Gleeson as Father James Lavelle, a priest tormented by his community despite being a good man intent on making the world a better place. When his life is threatened one day during confession, he finds he has to battle the dark forces closing in around him. Chris O'Dowd (Bridesmaids), Kelly Reilly (Flight), Aidan Gillen, Dylan Moran and Marie-Josée Croz also star in the film which premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and hits limited theaters August 1st.

Been looking forward to this since the first trailer a couple months back. The McDonagh-family seems to have a knack for writing and working with Brendan Gleeson.
