First Glance: “The Banshees of Inisherin”

Primed and ready for its festival circuit run, “The Banshees of Inisherin” has released its first trailer. This is a film from Martin McDonagh, his first since 2017’s shaky but beloved “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”. His latest sees him reteaming with his “In Bruges” partners Brendan Gleeson and Colin Farrell. This first look at the film gives us lots to look forward for.

The story centers around two friends and the consequences that follow after one (Gleeson) suddenly and without explanation ends their friendship. As with the best trailers, this one is cryptic. It gives us a basic intro to the story while leaving the details under wraps. I love that. To no one’s surprise, both Gleeson and Ferrell look great in this. And while I’m a little mixed on McDonagh’s films, I’m pretty excited for this one.

“The Banshees of Inisherin” opens in theaters October 21st. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.

  1. I just watched part of the trailer last night but quit before it gave away spoilers. My only beef with this is why oh why oh why did he have to put Barry Keoghan in this? Ever since I saw “Killing a Sacred Deer” I cannot stomach that guy. Nice to see Farrell and Gleeson team up again. I adored “In Bruges” and “Three Billboards…”
