Coming Soon has posted the British trailer for the Simon Pegg/Andy Serkis comedy, Burke & Hare, directed by John Landis. The film is “based on a true story” about two Irish grave-robbers, William Burke (Pegg) and William Hare (Serkis), who learn they can make a pretty penny on providing cadavers to two medical professors (Tom Wilkinson and Tim Curry). Aussie Isla Fisher, Pegg’s Spaced co-star Jessica Hynes, comedians Ronnie Corbett and Bill Bailey, and a whole Harry Potter-load of other fine British actors star.

As you may recall, Doctor Who‘s David Tennant was originally cast in Serkis’ role but had to drop out. But Serkis appears to amply bring the manic factor that is Tennant’s specialty.

Watch the trailer below:

Does this trailer make you jazzed about seeing Burke & Hare, or does it leave you corpse-cold?
