Check Out the First Trailer for Steve Coogan’s Alan Patridge Movie

Between What Maisie Knew, The Look of Love, and now his new Alan Partridge movie, there’s certainly no shortage of Steve Coogan—and I couldn’t be happier. The beloved "narcissistic wally" of a talk show host is finally getting a feature film of his own and to everyone’s delight, a first trailer has arrived.

Directed by Declan Lowney, the Alan Partridge movie—Alpha Papa? Alan Partridge in Alpha Papa? Colossal Velocity? Chap of Steel?—has been penned by Coogan, of course, as well as Peter Baynham and the biting comedic genius Armando Iannucci. And from this first trailer we basically just get a meta look at Partidge and his cohorts thinking up a proper title for the film. The Playlist tells us that last summer, Iannucci teased that, " "Alan is in Norwich. It’s not ‘Alan goes to Hollywood’; it’s not ‘Alan invaded by aliens’ or anything like that. He’s on North Norfolk Digital, which is taken over by a bigger media conglomerate and has its name changed to Shape. And that kicks everything off."

The feature-length look at Patridge is slated to be released in the UK this summer, but unfortunately a US release date is not on the immediate horizon. Here’s to hoping that changes soon. Check out the trailer below.

Watch the Trailer for ‘Veep,’ Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s New HBO Show

Much like his work on the BBC’s The Thick of It, Armando Iannucci is bringing a less charitable view of national politics to HBO’s Veep. In the show, Julis Louis-Dreyfus plays the hapless vice president of the United States, one who’s forced to attend meaningless fundraisers and make up platitudes on the spot (less Cheney, more Biden). She’d rather have more power, of course, which is why there’s a little smile on her face when she’s informed that the president is experiencing chest pains. So yes, it’s going to be that type of farce, one that will probably make you feel a little worse about the state of American politics like most things do these days.

Louis-Dreyfus is backed by a Murderer’s Row of comedic bit players: Arrested Development‘s Tony Hale, Upright Citizens Brigade founding member Matt Walsh, and everyone’s favorite "that girl," Anna Chlumsky. The curses are bleeped out in the trailer, but knowing the inspired language that filled up The Thick of It and its film spinoff In The Loop I’m guessing the show will be quoted around the Internet after it premieres on April 22, assuming it can deliver on the silliness we’ve seen so far.
