David Brent Full Trailer Reveals Ricky Gervais' Alter Ego Is As Cringeworthy As Ever

Ricky Gervais is bringing his alter ego to the big screen.

The first full trailer for 'David Brent: Life on the Road' has been released, revealing the former boss of Wernham Hogg pursuing his dream of a musical career, supported by the odd spot of repping. 

The trailer shows that none of Ricky Gervais's alter ego's enthusiasm has been lost since he last appeared on our screens, in the finale of the second series of 'The Office' in 2003. 

David Brent is following his musical dream

The film catches up with David 12 years on from the documentary that followed his day job - he's now a travelling salesman, working for Lavichem cleaning and ladies' hygiene products company, but tirelessly determined to take his band, Foregone Conclusion, on the road to musical glory.  

'David Brent: Life on the Road' will be in UK cinemas from 19 August 2016. Tap the first picture to open the slideshow below:
