The accolades have been rolling in for John Michael McDonagh's "Calvary." It premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January to solid reviews including ours which highlighted the "unwavering commitment to the intelligent thorniness of its themes" and the execution of the material brings "it soaring close to something divine." Things have been a bit quiet since, but the movie is now headed to theatres and a new clip and some images have arrived.

The accolades have been rolling in for John Michael McDonagh's "Calvary." It premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January to solid reviews, including ours which highlighted the "unwavering commitment to the intelligent thorniness of its themes" and the execution of the material brings "it soaring close to something divine." Things have been a bit quiet since, but the movie is now headed to theatres and a new clip and some images have arrived.

Brendan Gleeson leads the film, reteaming with his "The Guard" writer/director, for this tale about a priest who is told by an unseen member of his church that he will be killed. This sets off something of an existential, comic and dramatic journey for the man of the cloth, who continues to try and tend to his flock, even as death looms. And around Gleeson is a pretty great supporting cast including Kelly Reilly, Aidan Gillen, Isaach de Bankolé and Chris O'Dowd, with the latter seen in this clip, continually saying the wrong thing.

"Calvary" opens on August 1st. Watch below. [Vulture/ComingSoon]
