Teaser Trailer for Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's Sci-Fi Comedy PAUL!
Hey Gang! Here's the first official teaser trailer for the new Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's sci-fi comedy Paul, which also features the voice of Seth Rogan as the title alien character. The film also co-stars Jane Lynch, Jason Bateman, Sigourney Weaver, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Blythe Danner, and Jeffrey Tambor.
This is a film that most movie geeks are going to love, unfortunately this first teaser trailer isn't as good as I thought it would be. They really seem to hold back on a lot of the good comedic and standout moments. We saw a much longer red-band trailer for the movie at Comic-Con this last year, and it looked hilarious and vulgar! So even though this trailer may be a little tame, just know that the film looks like it's going to be awesome. I'm sure we'll end up seeing some better trailers soon.
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 teaser trailer below and share your thoughts!
