Just in time to combine forces with the trailer released yesterday, there is a minor new featurette on Paul, the Greg Mottola film that was written by and stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as a couple of road-trippin’ geeks who encounter a real-live alien, voiced by Seth Rogen. Read More »
Universal Pictures has released the an extended movie trailer for Superbad/Adventureland director Greg Mottola‘s sci-fi adventure comedy Paul which stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (and an alien voiced by Seth Rogen). The teaser trailer, released on October (watch it here), was met with mixed response. That said, I’m a huge fan of Mottola’s previous films, the cast is pretty stacked, and the geek-focused plot seems up my alley. I’ve heard nothing but good buzz coming out of test screenings of the film.

Here’s a new poster for Greg Mottola‘s new film Paul, which was written by and stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. The two play geeks on a post Comic Con road trip who encounter an actual alien, voiced by Seth Rogen, and then have to deal with a variety of oddball characters including a couple of Feds played by Jason Bateman and Bill Hader.

With a cast to die for including Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Jason Bateman, Bill Hader, Joe Lo Truglio, Jane Lynch, Jeffrey Tambor, and Sigourney Weaver, it’s hard not to be excited for director Greg Mottola’s Paul. From a script by Pegg and Frost, the film follows two friends who pick up a real life alien on their road trip visiting famous alien landmarks across America.
The full trailer will premiere Friday and now, thanks to Collider, we’ve got the first official teaser poster which prominently features the title character, voiced by Seth Rogen. Check out the full image after the jump. Read More »

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, best known for their on-screen team-ups in Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, co-wrote and co-star in the upcoming comedy Paul, which is scheduled for release on March 18. The pair play two British geeks who travel to America to take a road trip of famous UFO landmarks, which begins with a pain-staking re-creation of San Diego Comic-Con, and end up meeting a real life alien named Paul, voiced by Seth Rogen. Directed by Greg Mottola, Paul also stars Kristen Wiig, Jason Bateman, Bill Hader, Sigourney Weaver and Jane Lynch and is one of our most highly anticipated films of early 2011. A trailer was released last month and several photos from the film have made their way online but two brand new ones were just released. Check them out, as well as some early buzz on the film, after the jump. Read More »

Universal Pictures has released the first teaser trailer for Superbad/Adventureland director Greg Mottola‘s sci-fi adventure comedy Paul which stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (and an alien voiced by Seth Rogen). We got a chance to see some early footage from the film at Comic-Con, and most everyone agreed that it wasn’t what they were expecting (which isn’t entirely a bad thing). We’re so use to seeing Pegg/Frost in these smart clever British comedies, and this film seems a bit more wacky/broad. And I’m still not sure I like the alien design — It looks like a cartoony computer animated creation inserted into the scene and not a real life alien creature on earth. That said, I’m a huge fan of Mottola’s previous films, the cast is pretty stacked, and the geek-focused plot seems up my alley. I’m still excited to see more.
