Gervais' "Cemetery Junction" Trailer Hits the Internets




    A cruise ship battered by rough seas and powerful winds in the Atlantic Ocean cut short its voyage and docked at its New Jersey port Wednesday night, as thousands of weary passengers streamed out of the ship what one woman called "a cruise from hell."

    A couple of weeks ago we brought you some shots from "Cemetery Junction," the new movie from Ricky Gervais. Today we bring you the trailer.

    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.
