Watch This: Ricky Gervais' Cemetery Junction Teaser Trailer
There's no actual footage from the movie in this teaser trailer, but it does feature Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant, and Ralph Fiennes (seen above) talking about, well, the movie itself. Cemetery Junction, formerly known as The Men at the Pru, tells the funny, touching and universal story of being trapped in a small town and dreaming of escape. More specifically, it's a 1970s-set comedy centered on three upstart professional men working at an insurance company. Gervais debuted this announcement teaser well in advance of its release, as this is still shooting as we speak. But it's funny and worth watching, so enjoy!

Cemetery Junction, set in 1970s England, follows three blue-collar friends who spend their days joking, drinking and chasing girls. Freddie (Christian Cooke) wants to leave their working-class world but cool, charismatic Bruce (Tom Hughes) and lovable loser Snork (Jack Doolan) are happy with life the way it is.
Cemetery Junction is co-written and co-directed by British comedians Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, the two geniuses behind the original "Office" and "Extras" on HBO. This is their first feature film together. Cemetery Junction started shooting in June and is due for release from Sony Pictures sometime in 2010.
