A meek young man's life becomes overly complicated upon the arrival of his doppelganger in the comedic thriller The Double. Magnolia Pictures has released the second trailer ahead of its debut at the Sundance Film Festival (clickHere to find out when the film will be screening at the festival). Jesse Eisenberg stars as Simon, who meets his exact physical double James at work, although James doesn't lack the confidence and charisma that Simon does. Mia Wasikowska, Chris O'Dowd and Sally Hawkins co-star in director Richard Ayoade's film, which will be released theatrically in 2014.
Jesse Eisenberg plays Simon, a timid, isolated man who's overlooked at work, scorned by his mother, and ignored by the woman of his dreams (Mia Wasikowska). The arrival of a new co-worker, James (also played by Eisenberg), serves to upset the balance. James is both Simon's exact physical double and his opposite - confident, charismatic and good with women. »

Calvary sees The Guard writer/director John Michael McDonagh team up once again with Brendan Gleeson, here playing a priest who must confront the darker aspects of his community after his life is threatened during confession. Seemingly a million miles away from the fun of The Guard, Calvary still has some humour running through, albeit of the darker variety, and the below trailer promises some cracking dialogue (the exchange on when it is deemed o.k. to kill is especially good) and an impressive cast, including Aiden Gillen, Dylan Moran, Chris O'Dowd, and Domhaill Gleeson. Released: 11th April 2014 (Irl/U.K.) »

Remember the quite wonderful The Guard? If you've not seen it, do consider checking it out. It's from writer-director John Michael McDonagh, and sees Brendan Gleeson playing a particularly disinclined Irish law enforcement officer, forced to work with Don Cheadle's hyper-efficient FBI man.
McDonagh's new film, Calvary, has now been confirmed to play the Sundance Film Festival at the start of 2014, and it reunites him with Brendan Gleeson again. Furthermore, Chris O'Dowd, Kelly Reilly, Aidan Gillen, Dylan Moran and Marie-Josee Croze are in the cast.
It's a black comedy, and the first trailer for the film has just been released. We don't have a UK release date yet, but we'll let you know when we get one...

Several years ago, Brendan Gleeson and writer-director John Michael McDonagh scored a Sundance hit with the low-key dark comedy "The Guard." Sundance 2014 finds them reuniting for more bleak laughs and some religious introspection in "Calvary," with "Bridesmaids" star Chris O'Dowd in tow. The film's first trailer (above) gives you an idea of what to expect from the Bergman-esque tale of an idealistic priest (Gleeson) who finds himself seeing the world in a new light after receiving a death threat during a confession. It also stars Irish comedian Dylan Moran, Kelly Reilly ("Flight"), Isaach de Bankolé ("The Limits of Control") and Aidan Gillen, so memorable on »

The premiere category was just announced for the 2014 Sundance Film Festival featuring films like A Most Wanted Man with Philip Seymour Hoffman and the promising action-packed sequel The Raid 2. Another exciting entry to the festival in this special category is the newest film from The Guard director John Michael McDonagh. Reateaming with Brendan Gleeson, the story follows the In Bruges star as Father James Lavelle, a priest who has just found himself threatened during a private confession and is unsure what to do. It has some dark dry comedy helped along by Chris O'Dowd, Dylan Moran and more in this first trailer, and we'll definitely be checking it out at the festival next month. Watch the trailer now! Here's the first trailer for John Michael McDonagh's Calvary from eOne (via YouTube): Calvary is written and directed by John Michael McDonagh (The Guard), brother of In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths director Martin McDonagh. »

When writer-director John Michael McDonagh teamed up with star Brendan Gleeson for The Guard the result was a little bit of magic, one of the funniest black comedies I'd come across in quite some time bolstered by some truly remarkable performances and a fascinatingly flawed and fully fleshed out leading character. So the fact that McDonagh and Gleeson have re-teamed for Calvary while adding the likes of Chris O'Dowd and Dylan Moran into the mix? It does lead to very high expectations. Expectations which the brand new trailer seem to indicate will be met rather well, just fine, and perhaps I should raise them a little higher while I'm at it.Calvary is a blackly comedic drama about a priest tormented by his community.

Set to premiere at Sundance is John Michael McDonagh's (The Guard) new film, Calvary, which reteams him with Brendan Gleeson as 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. The film, again, is a dark comedy and along with Gleeson it co-stars Chris O'Dowd, Kelly Reilly, Aidan Gillen, Dylan Moran, Marie-Josee Croze, Isaach De Bankole, Domhnall Gleeson and David Wilmot. Today the first trailer for the film has arrived courtesy of The Guardian as it will hit UK theaters on April 11, 2014, though it does not yet have a Us distributor. Sony Classics picked up The Guard so I wouldn't be surprised to see the same happen with this one following its Sundance premiere. Check out the trailer below. »

"Gossip Girl" star Leighton Meester is headed to Broadway for the first time, alongside James Franco and Chris O'Dowd. The actress will appear in "Of Mice and Men," a revival of the play based on John Steinback's novella.

"Of Mice and Men" was first staged on Broadway in 1937, the same year the novella was published, running 207 performances before closing. The show was later revived in 1974 with Kevin Conway as George and James Earl Jones as Lennie.
