Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones' Netflix mockumentary Death to 2020 has unleashed its first full trailer, while also confirming a release date.

Set to arrive this Sunday (December 27), the star-filled comedy event looks just as sharp and biting as anything Black Mirror and Weekly Wipe creator Brooker has conjured up before.

Spliced together with genuine news footage, the trailer offers a glimpse at Samuel L Jackson, Hugh Grant (in heavy 'professor' make-up), Leslie Jones, Kumail Nanjiani, Joe Keery and Lisa Kudrow in action.

"With unprecedented access to experts, politicos, monarchs and average citizens, this is the definitive story of the most historic year in history," the narrator informs us.

Sharing a slightly deeper preview of what's to come, Brooker shared: "Death to 2020 features fictional characters discussing real events in a bombastic mockumentary, but quite a bit sillier than that makes it sound.

"It felt like an apt format for Netflix, which is known for high-end documentaries, but also like a good opportunity to create a different kind of comedy special that deals with the year head-on while also showcasing some brilliant performers."

Death to 2020 streams on Netflix from December 27.
