Searchlight Pictures has revealed the first-look trailer for Martin McDonagh’s Irish comedy-drama The Banshees of Inisherin, which is set to release in Irish cinemas this October.

The film sees the Oscar-winning writer/director reunite with Irish actors Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, the stars of his 2008 comedy In Bruges.The comedy-tragedy, which also stars Kerry Condon and Barry Keoghan, was recently selected for the 79th Venice International Film Festival.

Set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland, The Banshees of Inisherin follows lifelong friends Padraic (Colin Farrell) and Colm (Brendan Gleeson), who find themselves at an impasse when Colm unexpectedly puts an end to their friendship. A stunned Padraic, aided by his sister Siobhan (Kerry Condon) and troubled young islander Dominic (Barry Keoghan), endeavours to repair the relationship, refusing to take no for an answer. But Padraic's repeated efforts only strengthen his former friend’s resolve and when Colm delivers a desperate ultimatum, events swiftly escalate, with shocking consequences.

The key crew include cinematographer and regular McDonagh collaborator Ben Davis, costume designer Eimer Ni Mhaoldomhnaigh, production designer Mark Tildesley, and editor Mikkel E.G. Nielsen. Carter Burwell is composing the score. McDonagh and his frequent collaborators Graham Broadbent and Peter Czernin of Blueprint Pictures are producing for Searchlight Pictures and Film4.

The Banshees of Inisherin opens in Irish cinemas October 21.
