The full-length trailer that launched last month has been received with mixed reactions amongst people I’ve been talking to, and I have a feeling that the long-awaited film will have the same response in a few weeks’ time.
Following that recent new trailer, the first clip from the film has launched, via Yahoo Movies UK, giving us a look at Steve Coogan reprising his iconic role.
Alan Partridge has had many ups and downs in his life. National television broadcaster. Responsible for killing a guest on live TV. Local radio broadcaster. A nervous breakdown in Dundee. His self-published book,’Bouncing Back’, subsequently remaindered and pulped.
ALAN PARTRIDGE: ALPHA PAPA portrays the events of the greatest low-to-high-ebb spectrum in his life to date – specifically how he tries to salvage his public career while negotiating a potentially violent turn of events at North Norfolk Digital Radio.
Coogan returns alongside Felicity Montagu, Tim Key, Simon Greenall, Phil Cornwell, Nigel Lindsay, and Darren Boyd. And joining them them will be Colm Meaney, Anna Maxwell Martin, Monica Dolan, Sean Pertwee, and Dustin Demri-Burns.
Declan Lowney (Alan Partridge on Open Books with Martin Bryce) directs from a script co-written by Coogan, Armando Iannucci, Peter Baynham, and Neil and Rob Gibbons.
Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa will be released in the UK and Ireland on 7th August. Here’s the first clip to get you back in the mood.
