Updated: Gervais' Cemetery Junction trailer online
I'm not entirely sure if I should be posting the trailer for Ricky Gervais' Cemetery Junction, but it's been shown on British television by the looks of the so there can't be a problem showing it to people when they've just seen it on the free to air British television channels surely?
Cemetery Junction is the story of a group of young men who are working at a British insurance company in the seventies, and from the look of the trailer, it's got equal amounts of drama as it has comedy, and the comedy seems to be borne out of the moments and the characters, more out of the real life situations than we've seen with Gervais films to date and hinting at much more character focus than before. It's already looking like a very strong film.
The film is written and directed by the successful partnership of Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, both of whom also star, although it seems that Gervais has a larger role than Merchant, but then who's measuring?
Quiet Earth first highlighted the trailer for me, but then the copy they had was taken down, strange since it's obviously been shown on Channel 4 to the public as can be seen by the watermarks. Here's the trailer for you.
Update: Now the trailer for Cemetery Junction has been officially released online and it's in a bit higher resolution. Not only that but there's also a new blurb for the film telling us a little bit more about it:
”Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant's brand new film is a comedy set in 1970s England which follows the lives of three working-class friends trapped in a small town. When one of them – Freddie – gets a new job and bumps into his childhood sweetheart, the clan must make decisions that will change their lives forever”
You can see the new trailer from Yahoo Trailers exclusive area. Unfortunately they won't allow it to be embedded or place it on it's own page, so expect it to be ripped off shortly!
