Alan Partride: The Movie

Alpha Papa Trailer

If you don’t know of Steve Coogan from anywhere else, chances are you’ll at least know him as one of the stars of Michael Winterbottom’s BBC miniseries-turned-U.S. film release, The Trip. The scene from that one where he and Rob Brydon battle with dueling impressions of Michael Caine kind of went viral. Coogan has been a big name in the UK for quite a while, though, and largely because of his portrayal of Alan Partridge, a faux media personality who Coogan has portrayed in several different BBC series. Think of Partridge as being sort of like Garry Shandling performing as Larry Sanders but with quite a bit of the smugness of Ricky Gervais thrown in. He is British, after all. Well, it turns out the Partridge character has become so long-lived and beloved that the inevitable has happened: they’ve made an Alan Partridge movie. As a matter of fact, they’ve made an Alan Partridge movie called Alan Partridge is in Alpha Papa. How did they come up with such a ridiculous title? You’re in luck! The film’s new teaser trailer is about that very thing.
