We're just a couple of weeks away from the highly-anticipated Downton Abbey film, the spin-off from the ever popular TV series, which ended four years ago. And now fans have been treated with a new clip from the upcoming film.

The clip titled, 'We'll Have It Out', has been shared by Universal Pictures and sees Dame Maggie Smith, Imelda Staunton and Tuppence Middleton in action. In the clip, an awkward exchange takes place between Imelda's Lady Bagshaw and Maggie's Dowager Countess of Grantham.

As the Countess enters the room, she sees Lady Bagshaw sitting at her dressing table next to her maid Lucy Smith. The scenes starts with Lady Bagshaw saying, "How clever of you to find me...", to which, the Countess replies, "Well not really, I lived here 40 years."

Watch the new clip from Downton Abbey below:

This latest clip follows the official trailer for the film, which was released earlier this year. In the Downton Abbey trailer fans had the chance to see Hugh Bonneville's character, Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham, announce the news that King George V and Queen Mary would be visiting the family.

Announcing this news causes all of the house workers to fall into chaos - but everyone snaps back into shape when Carson returns to the Abbey.

The original run of Downton Abbey aired on ITV between 2010 and 2015, with the series finishing in 1926, this new film will pick up in 1927.
