Dreamworks has released the first trailer for Ghost Town, a film in which Ricky Gervais plays a dentist who dies for seven minutes and subsequently acquires the ability to see dead people. One dead person he sees is a man played by Greg Kinnear who wants help in stopping his wife (Tea Leoni) from marrying another man. Watch the trailer here.

Written and directed by David Koepp, Ghost Town is released in the US on September 19 and in the UK on October 24.

C'mon people! this guy has already created two televisual joys. He's chosen his first hollwood piece carefully. The guy is actually loved for his rejection of the celebrity system, he's done this because he wanted to. This could well be joyous!! More

Talent Vacuum
Once again Gervais is showing his complete lacking of acting talent. Now all we have to do is wait until the arrogance kicks in again and he starts rabbiting on about how great he is and wonderful he is which if it was a joke (and believe me it is a joke to think he is) has only gone on for a couple of years too long.

L: Scabby I found Gervais a bit of a prick in that to be honest. Plus I think that Koepp is a very overpayed writer for someone who kes enjoyable films based on fantastic source materialquote] Whats wrong with making enjoyable films? More

Well I think it looks funny!
Although there were two Curb-esq moments in the trailer (holding the lift, question about his colonoscopy) Listen, Ricky will be typecast like that at first, but he has great comical timing so this film should be pretty entertaining. Good one to take your girlfriend to, that is, if any of you have a girlfriend... More

Come on Gervais, do something funny again.  The Office was great but since then you seem to do only rubbish.  Get Merchant out to america and come up with something fucking genius that has something to do with that round headed prick Karl Pilkington. More

Woosh! Wow, what was that? Oh, just another (formerly funny) British talent selling himself cheap and chasing the American Dollar . . . . Mr. Gervais please get in line behind Mr Coogan, Mr. Pegg, Mr. Cohen . . . . More

Dear oh dear.
Not exactly a riot based on that trailer, is it? More

I'm going to love this. One of my favorite films as a kid was Topper, and this reminds he of it (rather than Ghost or the sixth Sense). More

Wasn't this film made already?
It was called Ghost... or was it The Sixth Sense? More

looks like a bit of an Old school comedy, some great comedy faces popping up, Gervais has the right tone of character and at least he dosen't have to put on a fake American accent. More

Dull...
This looks really dull and unoriginal, in my opinion... And it looks like a bit of a waste of Gervais' talent! More
