There are few directors who could find comedy in the premise of a priest who has been mysteriously told by an unidentified man that he'll be killed. But then perhaps you're not familiar with John Michael McDonagh, who put himself on the cinematic map with outrageous "The Guard," and returns with "Calvary." And today we have a batch of exclusive pics from the film.

Calvary

There are few directors who could find comedy in the premise of a priest who has been mysteriously told by an unidentified man that he'll be killed. But then perhaps you're not familiar with John Michael McDonagh, who put himself on the cinematic map with outrageous "The Guard," and returns with "Calvary." And today we have a batch of exclusive pics from the film.

A terrific cast has been brought together for this one, with Brendan Gleeson, Kelly Reilly, Aidan Gillen, Isaach de Bankolé and Chris O'Dowd among the ensemble, in the tale of the man of the cloth, who tries to continue with this churchly responsibilities, even with the looming threat of death. It's one we highly recommend with our critic out of Sundance calling the film "an inventive whodunit in reverse," but if you can't take his word, perhaps the Ecumenical Jury prize from the Berlin Film Festival will sway you.

"Calvary" opens on August 1st. Exclusive pics below.
