Johnny English Reborn gets a trailer

We're still not quite sure who demanded the sequel to Rowan Atkinson's 2003 hit Johnny English , but regardless of who's to blame, there's now a trailer online.

Since the events of the first movie, Johnny's been living in a mountain retreat, apparently undertaking ninja training of some description.

The trailer promises more of the slapstick-heavy physical comedy of English's first outing, but there aren't any standout gags here.

We also get brief glimpses of the surprisingly talented cast that includes Rosamund Pike, Gillian Anderson and Dominic West.

Johnny English Reborn is set to hit multiplexes on 7 October 2011.
