O'Dowd in yellow beanie at Sundance

Chris O'Dowd decided to keep his head warm in a chilly Park City, Utah on Sunday night as he pulled on a yellow beanie at the premiere of Calvary.

The 34-year-old combined the yellow woolly hat with a black jacket and a navy blue shirt at the Sundance Film Festival event.

Cavalry comes from the pen of John Michael McDonagh and features Brendan Gleeson, who also starred in McDonagh's acclaimed 2011 comedy The Guard.

Gleeson and O'Dowd lead an all star cast that also includes Kelly Reilly ( Sherlock Homes), Aiden Gillan ( The Wire), Dylan Moran ( Black Books), Marie-Josée Croze ( Tell No One) and Domhnall Gleeson ( About Time).

Centred around the story of a priest (Gleeson), whose life is threatened by an angry parishioner hell-bent on taking his revenge against the church, Cavalry has the same small town backdrop as The Guard.

Just like McDonagh's previous work the film's gripping storyline is backed up by a playful, yet subtle use of language an inference that help to make The Guard such a cult hit.

Interesting the concept of an assassinated priest stems from the back story of In Bruges, which also starred Brendan Gleeson and was written by McDonagh's brother Martin.
