2012 was not, it has to be said, the best year for big-screen comedy. But 2013 is looking a little brighter - and not just because 'Alan Partridge: The Movie' is coming out.

Sadly, there's no trailer yet for Partridge - nor The Hangover 3, Austin Powers 4 or Nick Frost's rather delightful-looking new comedy 'Cuban Fury', all of which are due for release this year.

What we do have, however, are 13 trailers for some of the other comedy films coming to a theater theatre cinema near you soon. From 'This Is 40' to 'Anchorman 2' - via British romcom, Danish romcom and Frank Langella playing against a robot - sit back with your popcorn and enjoy!

    Steve Carell and Steve Buschemi are camp, ageing magicians up against the new and exciting, ponytailed Jim Carrey. What's not to love?!

  • A Liar's Autobiography

    It's not a documentary. It's not a Monty Python film. It's... The untrue story of the very, very wonderful Graham Chapman.

  • This Is 40

    Judd Apatow's hotly-anticipated new comedy about life as a 40-something couple, starring Leslie Mann, Paul Rudd and Jason Segel.

    Seth Rogen is Barbra Streisand's son. Together, they have to travel 3,000 miles across America. What could possibly go wrong?

  • The Big Wedding

    Yes, it's a wedding romcom with Katherine Heigel. But it stars Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton, Susan Sarandon and Robin Williams - which surely mitigates it.

  • Robot And Frank

    'Frank' is an aging jewel thief played by Frank Langella. 'Robot' is the caretaker robot who looks after him. Together, they could plan the perfect crime...

    Police officer Melissa McCarthy is teamed with FBI agent Sandra Bullock... with hilarious consequences.
