Ricky Gervais Returns in First 'David Brent: Life on the Road' Trailer
"That was then, this is now. I'm currently a singer-song writer, and a rep." EntertainmentOne from the UK has debuted the first trailer for the spin-off mockumentay David Brent: Life on the Road, which brings back Ricky Gervais' character David Brent from the original "The Office" (the UK version of the show). This is almost a continuation of TV series into a full feature similar to "Entourage" recently, with the same characters coming back and more happening. In this film, they catch up with Brent twelve years down the line and apparently he's "chasing his dream of rock stardom by self-financing a UK tour with his band". There isn't much to this first trailer besides Ricky Gervais returning to the usual "Office" set to tease fans.
Here's the first trailer for Ricky Gervais' David Brent: Life on the Road mockumentary, from YouTube:
A camera crew catches up with David Brent, the former star of the fictional British series, "The Office" as he now fancies himself a rockstar on the road. Directed, written by and starring Ricky Gervais, David Brent: Life on the Road is a feature length film which sees a documentary crew catching up with David Brent twelve years on from the mockumentary "The Office". Brent is now a travelling salesman, chasing his dream of rock stardom by self-financing a UK tour with his band, "Foregone Conclusion". The film is written & directed by Ricky Gervais, who has previously directed the films Cemetery Junction and The Invention of Lying, not to mention lots of TV directing work. Life on the Road opens in UK theaters this August, but doesn't have a US release date set yet. For more info, visit the film's official Facebook. Anyone interested?

Looks good, the ending is brilliant, so awkward and cringey...

I'll never say no to more cringe worthy antics by David Brent. Hope some of the other cast make appearances somehow.

Juice. feel really awkward watching The Office, it's too close to real life. It's possibly why everyone in Britain drinks so much.

I never watched the series. No good reason for that. It just didn't feel like something I would like to do. But who knows, maybe I missed something good. Or at least this trailer is saying so ...

You should. The character is so cringe worthy that it's funny. A lot is Brit humor that if you're not british you'll have to get used to but it's enjoyable

Thanks guys, But the burden of my future spare time consumed by this series is on you...

It's worth watching, just as a study of humanity and the strange setup that is working in a controlled office/factory environment. It is funny, but just makes your skin crawl with the awkwardness.

Gervais' films are some of the most-under rated comedies out there.
