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.

2 of the funniest guys in the business who have perfect chemistry together. And Seth Rogen as the voice of the alien is perfect. Monsters vs. Aliens would have been a disappointment if it weren't for Rogen's hilarious voice

Nick Frost and Simon Pegg are overrated. And Seth Rogan is just fucking terrible.

i wonder what flavour of cornetto Nick Frost will be eating this time in the movie!! Cos he ate cornettos in shawn of the dead and hot fuzz.

13, there will be no cornetto, that is reserved for the "Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy," which are directed by Edgar Wright and star Simon and Nick. The last film in the trilogy is called The Worlds End.

14, Ah, nice one never new that, i thought Paul was part o the three movies they were making. The worlds end! Sound more like a dodgy Pub in Glasgow than a movie :o)
