It’s been a 10-year wait for fans of the cult classic The Boondock Saints, but the saints are coming! The Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day hits the theaters October 25. Judging from the trailer, this sequel has all the right ingredients to please fans, and make new ones. With original writer and director Troy Duffy at the helm, and repeat performances from Troy Duffy, Sean Patrick Flannery, and Billy Connolly, purists will be satisfied. Rounding out the cast of colorful characters are Clifton Collins Jr., Juliet Benz (who looks to be filling the role of Willlem Dafoe’s detective character), and Peter Fonda. There is plenty of Irish accents, Catholicism, and ultra violence, too.
