Empire's Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa Trailer Breakdown
What happens when the chat hits the fan?

submit to reddit

Years ago, Alan Partridge pitched a show called Alan Attack to the BBC. Now, in 2013, Alan is under attack, in the feverishly awaited Partridge movie, Alpha Papa. The trailer finally hit the internet today, giving us our first glimpse of the chat-based carnage that ensues when one of Alan’s North Norfolk Digital colleagues goes postal and takes over the station.

Having spent days on set in both London and Norwich, we’re able to provide a few insights into what to expect. So buckle up tight and prepare for Alan’s toughest challenge yet. Let’s hope he brought his big plate.

Another day, another instalment of Mid-Morning Matters, the digital radio show that boasts such features as Alan Describes Art, Word Scramble and Gender Thrash. It also has some killer music, as selected by Partridge. In this trailer, you hear what appears to be a muzak version of Daft Punk’s Around The World, plus Queen’s One Vision. Our spies tell us that the film itself might well feature Roachford’s Cuddly Toy and John Farnham’s You’re The Voice.

5 FILM OF THE YEAR!!
I'm utterly gasping to see this movie, the trailer looks hilarious. So chuffed to see Lynne & Michael in there also. I just hope they can sustain it for a full 1h 30mins. The way I look at it, God created Adam & Eve, he didn't create Adam & Steve! More

Is Kia the Korean Mercedes? Does a Kia come with driving gloves? Will there be sex people in the movie? Will Alan sing and/or play the air guitar? Kiss my face, I'm excited! More
