Published Apr 07, 2016Ricky Gervais' smug sense of humour has become grating in recent years, but fortunately his grating smugness means he's more equipped than ever to bring back his Office character David Brent. His Life on the Road mockumentary has been in the works for a while, and today we get our first taste with a new trailer.
Fans of The Office will find plenty to love here, from the din of phones and shuffling papers to David Brent's ill-placed cum jokes. The trailer also prominently features Jo Hartley (This Is England), who is a perfect foil to David Brent's insufferable sense of humour.
Honestly, Life on the Road looks like it very well might redeem Ricky Gervais for all the people who have grown tired of his schtick.
The film will open on August 19 in the UK with an international rollout soon after. Until then, watch the trailer below.
