Invention Of Lying trailer arrives

Ricky Gervais learns how to fib…

The first trailer for Ricky Gervais’ directing debut The Invention Of Lying has arrived online and you can truthfully watch it below.

Co-directed with Matthew Robinson (who also co-wrote) The Invention Of Lying finds Gervais as Mark a man in a world where no one lies, and speaks the bald-faced truth on every occasion.

But then one day at the bank, Mark suddenly hits upon the idea of fibbing, and his world changes radically.

He’s soon a massive celebrity and able to win the heart of the lovely Jennifer Garner. Yet his power has a downside…

With a comedy cast that includes the likes of Tina Fey, Jonah Hill, Rob Lowe and Christopher Guest, this looks like it’ll dig up a chuckle or two.

Take a look at the footage and decide for yourself…

      Good gracious! Another film in which Gervais plays an abnoxious little runt that everyone dislikes. I can't wait to avoid this at the cinema.

      Good, that means there's no chance I'll end up sitting next to you when I see this film. Can't wait! Looks hilarious!

      Ricky Gervias often seems to give this style of American comedy (a la Ghost Town) more credit than it's worth, while belittling British cinema. What's the difference between Ghost Town and Rock the Boat? Really excited for Cemetery Junction though, Gervais has always been better when dealing with Britain.
