The film is based on hit stage musical The Band.

The show – which features music from Take That – tells the story of a group of friends who all loved the same band and were best friends as teenagers, who then reunite 25 years later to see the group perform.

Take That are all executive producers on the film, which stars Aisling Bea, Alice Lowe, Jayde Adams, Amaka Okafor and Marc Wootton.

The new trailer shows the group as schoolgirls, before they come together again years later.

Barlow and co previously said the movie would be “dedicated to all those who have supported us throughout the years”.

“It puts a mirror on our audience – it's a celebration of our music but it's literally all about the fans and their friendships,” they said in a statement.
