Thanks to rickygervais.com, Facebook and sky movies, a ton of new images from Cemetery Junction have hit the net.  If you aren’t excited for this film…you should be.  The reason is it’s the first film to be written and directed by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant (The Office, Extras).  If you’ve seen either show, you know what I’m talking about.

When I spoke to Gervais when he was out promoting The Invention of Lying, he said Cemetery Junction is “set in the early 70’s and it’s about a group of twenty something’s that try to escape that stifling small town sort of mentality.”   He also called the movie his Saturday Night Fever.

While the main characters in the film are played by unknowns, they’ve cast Ralph Fiennes, Emily Watson, Matthew Goode, and Felicity Jones in supporting roles.  Hit the jump to see the first teaser trailer, a set visit by Sky News, and all the images that have hit the net so far.

And here are all the images I’ve found from the film so far.  No word on when we’ll get a proper trailer or when it’s getting released in America, but it’s hitting theaters in the U.K. April 7, so I’d imagine a trailer is imminent.
