First Official Images from PAUL Starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost

Universal has released the first official images from the Greg Mottola-helmed movie Paul. The film was penned by and stars one of my favorite comedy duos Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz). Pegg and Frost's characters go on a roadtrip and meet an alien (voiced by Seth Rogen) who decides to come-with. Checkout the trailer here.

No photos of the Seth Rogen-voiced alien yet, but it looks like one of their stops is SD Comic Con!


 Here's the movie's synopsis:

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) 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-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 is directed by Superbad’s Greg Mottola, from a story by Pegg & Frost.  Joining the comedy’s cast are Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Blythe Danner, Joe Lo Truglio, John Carroll Lynch, David Koechner and Sigourney Weaver.
