'The Guard': Brendan Gleeson's Got Guns In This Exclusive Clip

by Stefan Doyno

We know that Wednesday can sometimes be a slow crawl to the weekend, so we here at MTV Movies Blog are here to help you get through your hump-day with an exclusive clip from the upcoming dark comedy "The Guard."

"The Guard" tells the story of an unorthodox Irish policeman (played by Brendan Gleeson), who is teamed up with a straight-laced FBI agent (Don Cheadle, "Crash" and "Iron Man 2") to investigate an international cocaine-smuggling gang. If you're a Potter-Head, you'll recognize Gleeson from the "Harry Potter" series as Alastor 'Mad-Eye' Moody in "Goblet of Fire," "Order of the Phoenix" and the more recent "Deathly Hallows: Part 1."

So what exactly happens when you mix a confrontational cop, a quirky young boy, a dog, and a large bag of guns? A history lesson, apparently. Take a look at the exclusive clip below!


"The Guard" is written and directed by John Michael McDonagh and hits theaters on July 29. Tell us what you think of the clip in the comments section and on Twitter!
