Universal Pictures

English is called out of retirement after a cyber-attack reveals the identity of all undercover British operatives.

AceShowbiz - Rowan Atkinson is back as the much loved accidental secret agent in the first trailer for "Johnny English Strikes Again". The video reveals that the titular spy has become a school teacher since he was last seen saving the world in 2011's "Johnny English Reborn".

But when a cyber-attack reveals the identity of all active undercover agents in Britain, he is called out of retirement and becomes the secret service's last beacon of hope to get things under control. Joined by the ever helpful Angus Bough, who is still portrayed by Ben Miller, English dives head first into action with the mission to find the mastermind hacker.

As a man with few skills and analogue methods, Johnny English must overcome the challenges of modern technology to make this mission a success. With his quirkiness and unpredictable spy methods, the duo are soon caught in dangerous situations with silly and funny twists.

Emma Thompson stars as the new Prime Minister, and Olga Kurylenko portrays the seductive and charming villain. Directed by David Kerr, the third installment of the "Johnny English" film series is due out September 20 in the U.S. and October 12 in the U.K. William Davies wrote the script.

The upcoming film is expected to repeat the success of the first two movies, which both crossed $150 million worldwide. The first movie, which was released in 2003, was made on a production budget of just $40 million and went on to gross over $160 million at the global box office. It starred Natalie Imbruglia and John Malkovich.

The sequel followed in 2011 and starred Gillian Anderson, Dominic West, Rosamund Pike, Daniel Kaluuya and Richard Schiff. It also brought in a total of $160 million worldwide.
