Time, I think, for an exclusive clip and we’re big fans of Brendan Gleeson and Don Cheadle here at HeyUGuys so it’s more than a pleasure to bring you this short burst of their new film, The Guard.

We saw the film when it played at the Edinburgh Film Festival earlier this year and there’s been a healthy buzz around the film since it premiered at Sundance and on the 19th of August we get to see it in UK cinemas.

The film was written and directed by John Michael McDonagh and stars Messrs. Gleeson and Cheadle as well as a supporting cast of Liam Cunningham, Rory Keenan, Mark Strong, David Wilmot, Fionnula Flanagan and Dominique McElligott.

Synopsis, you say?

Sergeant Gerry Boyle (Gleeson) is a small-town Irish cop with a confrontational personality, a subversive sense of humor, a dying mother, a fondness for prostitutes, and absolutely no interest whatsoever in the international cocaine-smuggling ring that has brought straight-laced FBI agent Wendell Everett (Cheadle) to his door.

Here’s the clip, and if you want to know more keep up with all happenings at the film’s Facebook page,

And a trailer in case you’ve missed it,
