Guy Pearce Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark
EXCLUSIVE: The U.S. may have a few more weeks to wait before “Calvary” opens on August 1st (our review is here meantime), but we were lucky enough to get to meet the director, John Michael McDonagh, of “The Guard” and “brother of playwright and director Martin” fame, at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. A lot of what we chatted about was more germane to “Calvary” and so we’ll save that up for a date closer to August, but McDonagh was also extremely forthcoming about the other projects on his horizon, and included a little bit of new casting information for his next directorial outing “War On Everyone.”

But John Michael McDonagh's "The Guard" has proved to be something of a sleeper hit; the film became one of the biggest-grossing home-grown movies of all time in Ireland, and has managed decent grosses in other English-speaking territories, including the U.S, where it's proved to have more legs than most speciality releases since it hit theaters back in August.
