Gervais co-wrote and directed "Cemetery Junction" with Stephen Merchant ("The Office"). It stars Ralph Fiennes, Emily Watson, Matthew Goode and a slew of young unknowns in a story about three young men trapped in a small town in 1970s England. Gervais called this new movie his "Saturday Night Fever."
The trailer isn't as funny as you might hope -- though to be fair, it isn't really trying -- and those accents are thick. But it's Gervais, so we remain enthusiastic.
The film comes out in the UK in April, but there's no U.S. release date yet.
