David Brent is back and he's still making life hell for office dwellers.

The first trailer for the film version of Ricky Gervais' award-winning series The Office shows Brent making things incredibly awkward in an office setting.

Due out in August, the trailer for Life on the Road shows Brent working as a travelling sales rep while forging ahead with a career in music.

He showcases a song to some office workers, but makes things increasingly awkward as the conversation turns to sex - including a debate over how to spelling the word "coming".

Life on the Road is the follow-up to The Office which ran for two seasons from 2001-2003, and resulted in a successful US adaptation starring Steve Carell.

The film is due for release in New Zealand on August 25.
