Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant's 'Cemetery Juction': Definitely not 'The Office'

Posted on

The first trailer for Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant‘s coming-of-age movie Cemetery Junction is out, and it indeed looks British and coming-of-age-y! Bonus points for the Bowie:

Over the summer, Merchant explained the plot thusly: “The film itself centers around three young guys growing up in a small town. One of them is dreaming big, he wants to escape the blue-collar life which his dad, played by Ricky, has, working in a factory and window-cleaning on the side. He aspires to something else. And he meets Ralph Fiennes, who works for a big white-collar company, and he decides that’s his way out. But it starts to sort of distance him from his other working-class mates.” Gervais told us that Cemetery Junction is the duo’s “Saturday Night Fever meets Diner meets Rebel Without a Cause,” and that seems to be the vibe they’ve nailed.

Are you looking forward to Cemetery Junction, PopWatchers?
