Woah! Ricky Gervais Has Emotional Depth?

Perhaps you’ve heard of Cemetery Junction, or were at least aware that Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant (“The Office,” “Extras”) were co-writing and co-directing a film. Well, I daresay nothing that you know about either Gervais or Merchant, or any of their previous work, will prepare you for the Cemetery Junction trailer.

It’s a 1970s-set British romantic drama.

Did you catch that? A British romantic drama.

Don’t believe me? Check out the trailer, which looks great, though I’ll admit that almost anything looks great with “All the Young Dudes” playing over it. Seriously: If they’d played “All the Young Dudes” over the Paul Blart trailer I might have inadvertently gotten excited. It’s a weakness.
