Yesterday, we reported that the 2014 Sundance Film Festival had chosen John Michael McDonagh‘s Calvary to play in the “Premieres” category.  The dark comedy stars Brendan Gleeson as a good priest who wants to do well by his community, but his life is threatened by an unknown assailant during confession.  Judging by the trailer, this is far less comedic than McDonagh and Gleeson’s previous collaboration, The Guard, but still entertaining in its own way.  The film also has a strong cast of supporting players, which includes Chris O’Dowd, Kelly Reilly, Aidan Gillen, Dylan Moran, and Marie-Josée Croz.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The 2014 Sundance Film Festival runs from January 16 – 26th.

Here’s the synopsis for Calvary:

Calvary is a blackly comedic drama about a priest tormented by his community. Father James is 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.
