Directed by Academy Award winner Morgan Neville, the documentary tells Martin’s story from "two distinct points of view", with never-before-seen footage and personal insights from the man himself.

The first part, ‘Then’, documents the road bumps in his early career and his rise to fame, before he walked away from it all at the age of 35.

The second part, ‘Now’ focuses on the present and his more recent accomplishments, including making decisions on when he might retire.

"My whole life is backwards," Martin said in the new trailer. "How did I go from riddled with anxiety in my 30s, to 75 and really happy?"

The clip previews insights from stars of the comedy world ,including Tina Fey and Jerry Seinfeld, and there will also be contributions from the likes of Eric Idle and Diane Keaton.

A highlight of the trailer shows the actor on a bike ride with close friend and Only Murders in the Building co-star Martin Short.

"Why don’t I interview you as we’re driving?" Short said, to which Martin replied, "It’s called biking, but sure."

Their other co-star on the series Selena Gomez also appears in the documentary to speak about her friend.
