What's Up? First Official Teaser Poster for Greg Mottola's 'Paul'

Simon Pegg & Nick Frost in Paul

Who's up for a close encounter? Yea, that's the tagline they're using for this. Empire debuted the first teaser poster for Greg Mottola's Paul, starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as two comic geeks who befriend an alien named Paul voiced by Seth Rogen. We've seen a teaser trailer that I thought was hilarious, but others weren't too impressed. I'm expecting this to get some backlash for looking like everyone on it was made with 3D graphics. Plus, this just looks like Shaun of the Dead with an alien, which may or may not be a good way to sell it. I prefer this other banner much more. And sorry, but that Valentine's Day date is for the UK only!

Paul Poster

Two British comic book geeks (Frost & Pegg) traveling across the U.S. encounter an alien outside Area 51.

Paul is directed by filmmaker Greg Mottola, of The Daytrippers, episodes of "Undeclared", Superbad and Adventureland previously. The screenplay was written by the two co-stars, Nick Frost and Simon Pegg, of "Spaced" and Shaun of the Dead fame. Apparently they rebuilt most of the Comic-Con showfloor out in New Mexico to shoot some of the big convention scenes in this. Universal is bringing Paul to theaters everywhere on March 18th early next year. Stay tuned for more updates and visit the official website: whatispaul.com.

    The poster says Valentine's Day, you say March 18... which is it?
  • ^ Read the last sentence of the first paragraph! That February date is for the UK only.

    I really hope this movie rules, with a trio like that and written by what I think is the best comedic duo of all time...I would think its hard for it to fail.
  • A5J4DX
    cant wait for this trailer is gud too
  • Liking most of what I've seen, and I'm so happy to see Sigorney in another goofy sci-fi flick! Just not sure Rogen is the right choice for the alien, and is anyone else tired of Kristen Wiig?

    I saw this movie at a preview screening last month. Honestly this is the first comedy in a while that actually made me laugh. It's probably one of the few if not only movie where the alien isn't trying to wipe out the entire human race. Paul is actually quite loveable and Seth Rogen is pretty funny in the role. I loved how they have so many Sci-fi nods and references in this movie. I would recommend it to all my friends and if you loved Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead, then you will enjoy this movie. As with Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead though this movie is definitely not for kids. I think that's all i can say otherwise the suits at Universal will trace this, find me, and possibly have me killed. I find it odd that this and Battle Los Angeles are coming out at pretty much the same time. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost did a freaking outstanding job with this one.

    @ #5 yeah Weaver still looks pretty hot today. Seth Rogen was probably the best choice because Paul isn't the cliche'd type of alien everyone expects in today's world. You will see what I mean. What else has Kristen Wiig been in? Haven't really heard about her until Paul
  • max
    love these guys, but christ, I hope the CG is better than what is on the poster. Did they render that in lightwave 3?
  • dex
    @5I agree with you Initially i found her talented but now she's just so annoying!
  • Xerxex
