We’ve seen a teaser trailer and a couple photos from Paul, directed by Greg Mottola from a script by Nick Frost and Simon Pegg. Turns out there’s been a poster floating around as well. A shot of the one-sheet (in banner form) was taken at an expo in London, and you can see the full image below.
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost star as best friends who encounter an alien, Paul (Seth Rogen) during a post-Comic Con road trip. The film also co-stars Jane Lynch, Jason Bateman, Sigourney Weaver, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Blythe Danner, and Jeffrey Tambor. Paul hits theaters on March 18th 2011.
The official plot synopsis:
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reunite for the comedy adventure Paul as two sci-fi geeks whose pilgrimage takes them to America’s UFO heartland. While there, they accidentally meet an alien who brings them on an insane road trip that alters their universe forever. For the past 60 years, an alien named Paul (voiced by Seth Rogen) has been hanging out at a top-secret military base. For reasons unknown, the space-travelling smart ass decides to escape the compound and hop on the first vehicle out of town—a rented RV containing Earthlings Graeme Willy (Pegg) and Clive Collings (Frost). Chased by federal agents and the fanatical father of a young woman that they accidentally kidnap, Graeme and Clive hatch a fumbling escape plan to return Paul to his mother ship. And as two nerds struggle to help, one little green man might just take his fellow outcasts from misfits to intergalactic heroes.
