Watch This: Full Trailer for Ricky Gervais' Cemetery Junction
Anyone up for a British romantic comedy of sorts? Because this looks good! Yahoo has debuted the first full trailer for Cemetery Junction co-written and co-directed by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. You may remember seeing a teaser for this last year (with Ralph Fiennes) and some photos a few weeks ago, but now we get to finally see what it's all about. To be honest, this looks much more like a drama with some occasional comedic moments than it does a straightforward comedy, but that's not bad. I love the music, I love the characters, and overall it looks pretty damn good. I just hope it's a lot funnier than this trailer is.

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 last June and is due for release from Sony Pictures sometime in 2010.

I liked, nice to see Gervais doing something besides comedy, and I liked the use of "All The You Dudes" by Mott The Hopple...long story short I'm in.

Sorry... I love Ricky Gervais, but this looks pretty bad. The acting from all but Gervais looks terrible and the trailer is a little hard to get through without the nagging 'been there- done that' feeling going through your head.

unforunatly, I agree with Antioch. I hav'nt seen the invention of Lying yet, but that one Ghost Town was just really slow, and not funny. To think of all the hilarious things that could of happened in a situation whereyou can see the dead, and he barely got a laugh out of me the whole film.

I have to admit I like all of Ricky Gervais televisual output but haven't felt compelled to see any of of his films. I don't know why, maybe it's the trailers, maybe its the subject matter , maybe he's diluted his own brand of humour in order to attract a larger audience
