Fans of 'The Office', you're in for a treat, as the trailer for spin-off film 'David Brent: Life On The Road' has landed. 

Ricky Gervais has previewed his latest outing as the hapless office manager, ahead of the film's release later this year. 

The hotly-anticipated big screen adventure catches up with David 12 years after the conclusion of 'The Office', and finds him now working as a travelling salesman with Lavichem, a cleaning and ladies’ personal hygiene products company.

However, he hasn’t given up on his dream of rock stardom and is about to embark on a self-financed UK tour with his band, ‘Foregone Conclusion’.

Assembling a group of session musicians who are just in it for the money, along with talented rapper Dom (Ben Bailey Smith), in an attempt to gain street cred, David cashes in his pensions and takes unpaid leave in a bid to turn his dream into reality. 

Those hoping to see Martin Freeman reprise the role of Tim Canterbury in the film will be disappointed to hear that the actor will not appear alongside his former co-star.

He previously revealed that he hadn't been asked to be part of the film, telling The Sun: "I think it’s right that I’ve not been asked. I’m not a big fan of reunions. I don’t think they’re ever as good as the first one."

'The Office' originally ran for 14 episodes between 2001 and 2003 on the BBC, and made stars of Ricky, Martin and Stephen Merchant.

'David Brent: Life On The Road' will be in cinemas from 19 August 2016.
