British comedy icon and possible otherworldly visitor Mr Bean is back in a brand new movie, his first since 2006’s Mr Bean’s Holiday.

Unfortunately there’s a catch, the movie’s only available in China, yeah we really should have front loaded the story with that shouldn’t we?

Anyway rubber-faced funny man Rowan Atkinson slipped on the tweed jacket and red tie that made his name last night at the premiere of the film Top Funny Comedian, which sees the star plays his famous character opposite Chinese stars Guo Degang and Yue Yunpeng.

Top Funny Comedian is expected to be a major hit for star with Mr Bean’s Holiday bringing in £2.4 million in China.

Bean’s extremely popular around the world, as the character’s body language is what makes him so funny, and he’s known in Asia as Mr Foolish Bean.

Guo claims that during the film he and Atkinson communicated entirely through body language as he doesn’t speak English very well.

He said: 

Just with facial expressions and gestures we seemed to understand each other.

It was really an interesting experience, which proves that comedy can cross boundaries.

 

Bean’s last major appearance was during the 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony where the infamous klutz helped perform the iconic Chariots of Fire theme.

He’s also appeared in a Snicker’s advert presumably because Rowan Atkinson wanted to buy a car or something else nice.
