The minute-longer teaser shows Steve Coogan‘s hapless DJ giving an awkward interview to a pair of stony-faced police officers. “I’ve never fired [a rifle] in anger, or at a cat…” Partridge reveals at one point.

The world premiere of Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa will take place on July 24 in Partridge’s hometown of Norwich following a Facebook and Twitter campaign by fans and local residents. Partridge will attend the premiere at Norwich’s Hollywood Cinema at lunchtime on July 24 before taking a helicopter flight to Leicester Square for the London premiere that evening.

Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa will then open at cinemas across the UK on August 7. Director Declan Lowney has previously revealed that it places Steve Coogan’s hapless DJ in a hostage situation.

“The notion of Alan being caught up in a hostage situation is outlandish, but how it happens is perfectly believable,” Lowney explained. “Steve strives for stuff to be real, even with all the gags. That said, there’s quite a bit of action. We’ve got violence, guns and heavy kissing.”
