David Brent: Life on the Road Trailer Starring Ricky Gervais


In addition to his upcoming Netflix feature, Special Correspondents, which arrives later this month, Ricky Gervais has another movie coming later this year that will find him revisiting the character that made him an international star back in the early 2000s. David Brent: Life on the Road is the long-awaited follow-up to The Office that puts everyone’s favourite socially awkward boss in a brand new setting: embarking on a live U.K. tour with his band Foregone Conclusion. Of course, the first teaser trailer doesn’t show any of that, preferring to bring him back in his old stomping grounds as he pays a visit to Wernham Hogg years later. If you were hoping to see some other familiar faces, however, you may be a bit disappointed. David Brent: Life on the Road hits theatres in the U.K. on Aug. 19th and arrives stateside shortly thereafter; check out the first teaser trailer after the jump and see what you think.

    Gervais has kind of gone off the boil over the past few years but this trailer was considerably better than expected.

    This was funny. Don’t know how the character will work outside this kind of environment though.
