Who's ready for a funny-ass sci-fi geek adventure film starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost? Paul looks like it's going to be a great film, and there's a new international UK movie trailer that's been released to give you a taste of what this movie has to offer. This is definitely a movie that speaks to the geek in all of us, and I can't wait to see it! I have a couple friends that saw the movie not too long ago and they loved it!
The film also features the voice of Seth Rogan as the title alien character, as well as Jane Lynch, Jason Bateman, Sigourney Weaver, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Blythe Danner, and Jeffrey Tambor.
The official plot synopsis:
In the film, Pegg and Frost (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) play 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 Rogen) has been hanging out at a top-secret military base. For reasons unknown, the space-traveling 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.
Paul hits theaters on March 18th 2011. Check out the new trailer below and tell us what you think!
