Sony Pictures Classics has released the domestic trailer for John Michael McDonagh’s The Guard. A couple weeks ago, we showed you the international trailer for the film and at the time I speculated that the US trailer would dial back the racial humor. But it actually included more! Hooray! This new trailer does a good job of delivering laughs and hopefully it will entice people to check out this solid small flick that features a winning performance from Brendan Gleeson.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The Guard opens in limited release on July 29th.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Guard:
THE GUARD is a comedic, fish out of water tale of murder, blackmail, drug trafficking and rural police corruption, and the two cops who must join forces to take on an international drug-smuggling gang, an unorthodox Irish policeman and a straitlaced FBI agent.
