Gervais and Merchant’s Cemetery Junction feature trailer debut!

The trailer for Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant‘s latest film Cemetery Junction has leaked online. Check it out now before it’s gone!

Cemetery Junction follows a couple of twenty-something’s working as building society clerks in 1970’s Reading. The film was written and directed by Gervais and Merchant (creators, writers and co-directors of The Office and Extras). Gervais made his directorial debut with last year’s The Invention of Lying (a collaboration with American Matt Robinson). Although the film was mostly funny, it devolved into derivative sludge and was visually unappealing.

Well, I guess Merchant has the real directorial eye out of the two of them, because this trailer looks spectacular. We can only hope that lightning strikes a third time for the duo, and that Cemetery Junction becomes a worthy companion piece to their classic TV shows.

I just hope none of that Tooth Fairy awfulness has rubbed off on Merchant.

The film stars Gervais, Jack Doolan, Christian Cooke, Tom Hughes, Matthew Goode, Ralph Fiennes and Emily Watson. It hits U.K. cinemas on the 4th of April. An Australian release should follow soon after.

Discuss: We called Cemetery Junction the 4th most exciting upcoming release of 2010. Agree?
