Our friends across the pond and down under will get to see Ricky Gervais back as the former Wernham Hogg Paper Company boss David Brent on the big screen in August. In a new mockumentary feature film, David Brent follows his dreams of being a rock star while working a new job as a cleaning products sales rep. David Brent: Life on the Road not only brings back flares of The Office, but also sees Brent hitting the road for a tour in his home country, complete with original music written by the inappropriate and awkward character himself.
Now you can get a taste of one of his tunes with a David Brent music video for a song called “Gyspy Lady.” It’s a love song as only David Brent can deliver about how he fell in love with some kind of gypsy, though he can’t remember her name. Watch below. Read More »
For any fans of the original iteration of The Office, it appears this is as close as we’ll get to seeing a film adaptation of the comedy mockumentary series. Comedian Ricky Gervais is back as former Wernham Hogg Paper Company boss David Brent, only this time he’s a traveling salesman who is still desperate to follow his dream to become a rock star.
David Brent: Life on the Road is a mockumentary feature that follows the clueless title character as he self-finances a tour across the United Kingdom with his band Foregone Conclusion. As you might expect, audiences aren’t so keen to receive the band, and Brent continues to make every situation awkward with his inappropriate sense of humor and complete lack of self-awareness.

It’s been 24 years since Absolutely Fabulous debuted on television in the United Kingdom. The series ended up lasting six seasons, but sporadically over the span of nearly 20 years. The second and third seasons arrived in 1994 and 1995, but the fourth season didn’t debut until 2001 with a fifth season in 2003 and the last sixth season arriving in 2011. Now the series is coming to the big screen.
The full length Absolutely Fabulous movie trailer has just arrived, showing off what Edina (Jennifer Saunders) and Patsy (Joanna Lumley) are up to after all these years. Sadly, it looks like things aren’t going very well for the duo, and they don’t seem to be getting better after they accidentally kill beloved model Kate Moss at a posh party.

Benedict Cumberbatch may have just wrapped production on Marvel’s Doctor Strange a few days ago, but he’s already started shooting Sherlock season 4. Call it keeping your nose to the grindstone. Call it having a supernatural ability to work with the bare minimum amount of sleep. In either case, Mr. Cumberbatch must have the same mutant gene as Dwayne Johnson. You know, the one that allows him to work tirelessly without crashing his car into a ditch or walking into closed doors.
Anyway, the real news here is not that Cumberbatch is secretly one of those kids from Beggars in Spain, but that production has officially begun on more episodes of Sherlock, which is good news for people who like nice things.
