Both Cemetery Junction and Four Lions are released on DVD in the UK today.
The two films are the big screen debuts of two of Britain’s best screenwriters, Gervais & Merchant and Chris Morris.
Cemetery Junction written by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant is a coming of age story set in Reading, whilst the controversial Four Lions by Chris Morris follows a group of wannabe terrorists in London.
Cemetery Junction made £1,421,688 at the UK box Office during its run in cinemas, whilst Four Lions grossed £2,928,884
Both are absolutely brilliant films, and are definitely in Blue Nun’s Top 2 films of 2010, hopefully they will raise the profile of British comedy around the world even higher than it already is, but with Cemetery Junction being released as a DVD only release in America and the chances of Americans seeing the funny side to a comedy about terrorists (except in the south, where they might just think it is actually slagging off Muslims), you get the feeling America might miss out this year.
