Watch This: First Trailer For The Invention Of Lying


Yahoo has delivered our first peek at the trailer for Ricky Gervais and Matt Robinson’s The Invention of Lying. Gervais will star alongside a smörgåsbord of talent including Tina Fey, Jonah Hill, Jeffrey Tambor, Jason Bateman and many more. To match a fantastic cast we have a truly original concept, as Mark (Gervais) inhabits a world where no one has ever lied, so when he discovers the ability, everyone believes everything he says.

The trailer delivers on this promise and, quite honestly, it looks hilarious. We see hints at nearly everyone in the huge cast, but it’s merely a tease and, by golly, it worked because I want to see this now. We don’t get much plot, which I think is for the better, as the idea is great enough to get people in the door. I just hope it’s successful since Gervais still isn’t a huge name in America. Hopefully this will change that, though. It also seems to have some heart, much like the best parts of ‘The Office’ and ‘Extras’. Maybe with the expanded Oscars we may see some love for comedy, and I’d put my money on this.

The Invention of Lying debuts the 25th of September.
