See how Gervais lies

Jun. 26, 2009by: Omar Aviles

Update: US version of the trailer added for comparison.

Yahoo UK recently posted the first trailer for Ricky Gervais' upcoming THE INVENTION OF LYING (formerly known as THIS SIDE OF THE TRUTH) and whoa mama, this one's gonna be good. Aside from Gervais himself, the film stars a who's who of established and upcoming talent. Just in the trailer alone we see Jennifer Garner, Stephen Merchant, Tina Fey, Jonah Hill, Louis CK, Rob Lowe and Stephanie March and yet to be seen are Jason Bateman, Patrick Stewart, Christopher Guest, and Jeffrey Tambor. The story is just as the title implies - in an alternate reality where everyone tells the truth, a man discovers how to lie and uses it to become rich and famous. An immense amount of hilarity ensues. Click through to check out the trailer. See Gervais exploit the poor truth-telling populace on September 25th.

Extra Tidbit: Gervais recently mentioned on his official blog that J.J. Abrams loved it.

This looks great. I'd see anything with Ricky Gervais. I'm also glad to see more Martin Starr.

Looks great and it seems like Louis C.K. has a big part, which is awesome.

Looks to be a good film but I'm tired of hearing Mr. Blue Sky with every trailer. It must be one of the cheapest songs to get rights to.

Haverchuck!

And more Martin Starr! Awesome. I love seeing him pop up more and more lately after Adventureland.

Not to mention the rest of the unbelievable cast...just hilarious.

Ricky Gervais has been the best thing going in comedy for the past ten years, and I can't wait to see this.

Aaah I see what you just did there! In the film they can't lie, but you just did! Good job.

Don't forget...

.....Stephen Merchant. As Ricky's partner in crime he tends to produce a lot more laughs than the man himself. Check out Extras to see what I mean. :)
