Studio Canal and BBC Films have released the first teaser trailer for writer/director Armando Iannucci’s (In the Loop) upcoming comedy Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa. The film is a feature adaptation of the popular BBC TV series and radio character Alan Partridge, portrayed by Steve Coogan. Patridge is a bit of a parody of sports commentators and talk show hosts, as the character is himself a radio host and television presenter on I’m Alan Partridge. I’m quite unfamiliar with Partridge, but this teaser trailer is funny enough and I assume fans of the character will be pleased to see that the movie is finally coming to fruition. As a fan of Iannuci’s In the Loop and his HBO series Veep, I look forward to seeing more of Alpha Papa
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa opens in the UK on August 7th.
