Paul Teaser Trailer

Is everyone finally ready to meet "Paul"? Universal has just debuted the first UK teaser trailer on MSN (via Pegg's Twitter) for Greg Mottola's Paul, the sci-fi comedy re-teaming of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. You may have heard about descriptions from Comic-Con, but now you get to actually see what Seth Rogen as a pot smoking little green alien looks like. This wacky sci-fi action(!) comedy is about these two British comic book geeks who, after a road trip to Comic-Con, come across this extraterrestrial who escaped from Area 51. This looks totally frickin' awesome, like maybe one of the best action-comedies of next year. Check this out!

Watch the first UK teaser trailer for Greg Mottola's Paul (via Vlicious):

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:

Oh hell yes, at least we can always rely on comedy to bring us fresh new non remade material.

LINKFX on Oct 18, 2010


This looks like a poorer version of Mac & Me. Awful. Just Awful.

Iknowall on Oct 18, 2010


@3 Not questioning your opinion which is your own but... how is this the "poorer" version? o_o

LW on Oct 18, 2010


Watchin' it.

#3 - what the heck are you talking about? like #4 says - everyone is entitled to an opinion, but i don't understand how you thought that was "just awful"??

beavis on Oct 18, 2010


Looks like Roger from American Dad. Can't wait to see this. Amazing!

Manuel on Oct 18, 2010


This looks fucking terrible... it's a trailer for a comedy but with more rapid fire edits than a Jet Li film and one lone, pathetic joke at the end. The plot seems non-existant. All we get are the cast names. What are they hiding? It looks like hokey kids shit.

Dave on Oct 18, 2010


It's a teaser trailer.

Chris on Oct 18, 2010


I think it looks stupid. But it's a teaser, so I'll wait till I see more.

peter T'Sas on Oct 18, 2010


Looks fantastic. Bring it on....

Nithin on Oct 18, 2010


~sigh~ Some people seem to enjoy leaving random negative posts on blogs. Whatever floats your boat, I guess... These are the same guys that, together, brought us "Shawn of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz. Based on that, this is worth a shot (at least).

The Credenza Kid on Oct 18, 2010


@12.....I agree. Comparing it to "Mac & Me"!? Give me a fucking break. It's more like "Men in Black". And it's going to be good at the very least.

Film Fan on Oct 18, 2010


Hey, why doesn't Jane Lynch get any credit in the trailer. She's HUGE now!

Film Fan on Oct 18, 2010


I don't really think this teaser shows a whole lot of the movie, so I would be wrong to judge it just by 1 min of material. My gut feeling tells me it'll be awesome though...

Nat on Oct 18, 2010


They teased seeing Sigourney Weaver's breasts. Hopefully they don't disappoint

Dylan on Oct 18, 2010


I saw the panel for this at Comic-Con and this doesn't do it justice. The movie is FOUL. I'm actually surprised they got away with showing what they showed at a "family" event. Rest assured that nothing short of a red band is going to give you a real idea of what this movie will be like. It looks like it will be hilarious.

Groov on Oct 18, 2010


@7 Yeah, that's the vibe I got. Live action Roger... hmmm. It'll probably be damn funny but I'd liked to have seen a more interesting (adventurous?) design.

Chris on Oct 18, 2010


This looks fucking awesome!!!

Sean on Oct 18, 2010


This teaser is dumb! I'll wait for a proper trailer

Ricardo on Oct 18, 2010


Haha looks funny.

ZzFDKzZ on Oct 18, 2010


haters its a teaser, nothing more. It looks awesome! Seth Rogen's voice is perfect for this role. Glad to see Frost and Pegg back together, and Bateman is always a plus, Wiig is looking great! and Weaver just makes it awesome.

Xerxex on Oct 18, 2010


his voice doesnt go with the alien -________- but looks refreshing not too bad

drcherd on Oct 18, 2010


You had me at pot smoking alien....and that last line in the trailer.

Cody w on Oct 18, 2010


Looks fun! We haven't had a comic pairing like these two in a long time! I'd pay to see this big time!

jah p on Oct 18, 2010


WOW... this is actually the first movie starring seth rogen that I'm ACTUALLY looking foward to.

asgfsfds on Oct 18, 2010


They showed about a 5 minute clip at the con back in july and i can tell you that it was hilarious and that this doesn't give away much at all because they don't even remotely reveal the plot.

floppytall on Oct 18, 2010


Lol. What? This is... What just happened? I am so seeing this.

Lar on Oct 18, 2010


Not sure if Seth Rogen is cut out for voice work. Simon and Frost look like they were shoe-horned into this. Not jelling with me at all. IMO. Eat it if my opionion offends anyone.

Scared S-less!!! on Oct 18, 2010


Have to get over Seth Rogen's voice. I can take him as that Spiderwick goblin thing and that Blob in Monsters vs. Aliens...cuz those designs look like he sounds like....a big fat monster. The use of his voice in Toy Story 3 was good, because it was ironic. A skinny alien? Eh, maybe just the pot-smoking part fits, but "Paul" looks more like he would sound like Steve Buscemi or Joey Pants.

Friend of Paul on Oct 18, 2010


Amen #27, not a Rogen fan myself. I love Pegg and Frost especially when they're together. Great chemistry. They always make me laugh.

arjones on Oct 18, 2010


Seth Rogan is doing too many voice overs. It's getting old

Dan W on Oct 18, 2010


I like Pegg, Frost and Rogen so ahm in, teaser was a little weird, but don't care.

Crapola on Oct 18, 2010


Loving the recent trend of Prodigy songs in trailers!

Tom on Oct 19, 2010


That looks pretty bad

gshauger on Oct 19, 2010


@3 Hey, I remember thoroughly enjoying Mac & Me. When I was 5.
