A new trailer for The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel has been released.

Richard Gere will star in the follow-up to 2012's hit comedy as new arrival Guy, who fights for his right to a room with fellow newcomer Lavinia, played by Tamsin Greig.

Dame Judi Dench, Dame Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy and Dev Patel will also star in the movie.

Speaking about the new film, filmmaker John Madden said: ''This film presented us with an irresistible opportunity: to continue a story we realised we had only just begun.

"Not to tell the same story again, but to pursue where the lives of these very different characters lead, with an audience which already holds them in great affection."

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel hits cinemas on February 27.
