Avast! Trailer For The Guard!

We’ve been fans of Brendan Gleeson ever since he appeared in a forgotten gem of a movie in 1997 called I Went Down, where he played erratic gangster Bunny Kelly to hilarious effect. So it’s nice to see the big man churn out another role in a similar Irish black comedy about crime.

The Guard also stars Don Cheadle and Mark Strong and early word suggests that the film is a riot, with some critics hinting that Gleeson may get a nod from the Academy next year for his role as an unorthodox Irish policeman with a confrontational personality, who is teamed up with an uptight FBI agent to investigate an international drug-smuggling ring.
