Win David Brent: Life on the Road goodies in our competition (WINNERS ANNOUNCED)

david brent life on the roadThe distributors Entertainment One have been good enough to offer our UK readers (sorry foreign visitors) some goodies to coincide with the release of The Office star David Brent’s feature film debut, Life on the Road.

More than a decade after leaving the Slough paper firm Wernham Hogg, Ricky Gervais’s alter ego is working as a sales rep for a cleaning products firm, to try to raise the cash to take his band on tour, in the hope of getting signed to a major record label.

Anyone familiar with The Office won’t be surprised to learn that David Brent’s Life on the Road is a cringe-inducing catalogue of well-meaning insults, social misunderstandings, misguided self-confidence and shattered dreams.

Ricky Gervais rose to fame as the star, co-writer and co-director of The Office, created with Stephen Merchant. He’s since gone on to direct three films for theatrical release, but only one has been co-directed with Stephen Merchant. Which was it?

  1. The Invention of Lying
  2. Cemetery Junction
  3. David Brent: Life on the Road

David Brent: Life on the Road is released in the UK on Friday 19th August 2016. We’ll announce the winners the following weekend.

They all knew that although David Brent was a character created by Ricky Gervais with Stephen Merchant, the only film the pair have directed together was Cemetery Junction. Well done them – and thanks to everyone else who entered.
