Written and Directed by Ricky Gervais.
The Office was one of the most successful British comedies of the last twenty years. Its influence can be seen in cringe-coms like Curb Your Enthusiam and documentary-style shows such as Modern Family and, of course, the incredibly popular American remake. It was also one of those very rare shows that didn’t outstay its welcome and went out with a perfect finale. The prospect of that ending being tarnished by a big-screen spin-off set 13 years later made this particular fan quite nervous, but two minutes into the film I was laughing »

Ahead of its release in the UK this Friday, we’ve got an exclusive clip from the horror-comedy Bachelor Games, which has been described as The Hills Have Eyes meets The Hangover. Check it out here courtesy of Gravitas Ventures and Strike Films…
When five friends embark on a bachelor weekend in Argentina, everyone expects the usual hedonistic business. They do not expect to find themselves stranded, wounded, and hunted through the Andes. But that’s just what happens when an elaborate scheme for revenge goes horribly awry.
The Hangover meets The Hills Have Eyes with a Shyamalan-esque twist, Bachelor Games stars a bright young cast led by Charlie Bewley (Twilight, The Vampire Diaries, Nashville, forthcoming The Lake with J.K. Simmons), Jack Gordon (Fishtank, Northern Soul with Steve Coogan) and Jack Doolan (Ricky Gervais’ Cemetery Junction, Cockney’s Vs. Zombies).
Bachelor Games comes to VOD in the UK on July 8th. »

The Office is considered one of the best American sitcoms of the 2000s. Though, it was based on a UK comedy that came a few years before it from the creative and hilarious mind of Ricky Gervais. Gervais is reprising his iconic role of ex-boss David Brent in the all-new feature film Life on the Road. It was announced that this upcoming comedy will debut exclusively on Netflix in the U.S. and select international territories sometime in 2017. But it is getting a proper theatrical release in London and surrounding territories this summer. To help celebrate, BBC Films and EntertainmentOne have released a new video, which finds Gervais sliding into the sleeveless white T of his most popular character to date.
Hard to believe that July is already upon us, but before we all take off for some summer shenanigans over this long holiday weekend, here’s a look at all the great VOD titles coming our way this month, including one of my favorite films I’ve seen in 2016, Mickey Keating’s brilliant Carnage Park, which is being released by IFC Midnight.
Marauders, the latest from Steven C. Miller (The Aggression Scale, Silent Night) is also making its VOD premiere on July 1st, along with Magnet Releasing's Satanic, and Gravitas Ventures wants us to indulge in some Bachelor Games on July 8th. The haunting and beautiful Japanese animated film, Belladonna of Sadness—something all genre fans should experience at least once in their lifetimes (it’s amazing)—arrives on VOD on July 12th, and the revenge thriller Angels and Outlaws will be released on July 15th.
