Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant’s latest project in the form of Cemetery Junction is now in cinemas so, as a special treat, I thought I’d post these three new behind the scenes featurettes for you. One in an introduction to the movie itself, the second is an interview with the cast and the third looks at the 70s era, clothes, hair etc to make the film as authentic as possible.

Jon has reviewed Cemetery Junction which you can see here.

Gervais and Merchant both star in the film (although not for too long) but both have their directing hats on for it. Cemetery Junction also stars Ralph Fiennes (The Reader, Schindler’s List), Emily Watson (Synecdoche, New York, Breaking the Waves) and MATTHEW GOODE (Watchmen, Brideshead Revisited) feature alongside stars-of-the-future Christian Cooke, Felicity Jones, Tom Hughes and Jack Doolan.

Synopsis: In 1970s England, three blue-collar friends spend their days joking, drinking, fighting and chasing girls.

Freddie (Christian Cooke) wants to leave their working-class world but cool, charismatic Bruce (Tom Hughes) and lovable loser Snork (Jack Doolan) are happy with life the way it is.

When Freddie gets a new job as a door-to-door salesman and bumps into his old school sweetheart Julie (Felicity Jones), the gang are forced to make choices that will change their lives forever.
