First Look: Promo Art for Nick Frost & Simon Pegg's Paul
This bit of art, on display in the backlot at Universal Studios, first showed up on Twitter a few weeks back. I'm not sure why Universal has decided to put this up on display as part of the backlot studio tour, and not online for everyone to see, but that's Universal for you. Anyway, Collider now has a bigger, cleaner, high res shot of the first promo art for Nick Frost and Simon Pegg's new movie Paul directed by Greg Mottola, that's being shot as we speak. It doesn't show us what the alien looks like but it's a pretty good promo photo and it sets the mood for what's to come. If you don't know what Paul is yet, well, then you're not a rightful geek.
As a reminder, Paul is about two British sci-fi enthusiasts who embark on a roadtrip across the US starting at the San Diego Comic-Con. Having enjoyed the delights of the convention, the boys head towards Area 51 to search for UFOs. However, their trip takes a sudden and dramatic turn when they happen upon a crashed government vehicle containing an Alien named Paul (voiced by Seth Rogen). I really love the idea of this, it's like a geek sci-fi comedy dream, and I can't wait to see more from it. Hopefully we'll see a trailer soon? Or else we'll just have to snap more spy shots like this. Stay tuned for updates and visit: whatispaul.com.
