The first teaser poster has been released for Greg Mottola’s upcoming comedy Paul. The film features Seth Rogen as the title character (in voice only) and frequent collaborators Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as his unsuspecting allies. Over on Collider, they posted the new Paul one sheet that seems to be inspired from another movie’s marketing campaign. Can you guess which one? Take a look…

Does this remind you of a lighter, brighter version of The Social Network posters? Remember the one that featured Jesse Eisenberg with all the adjectives written across his face like genius, nerd, billionaire? Here we have fugitive, celebrity, slacker, joker, and alien, all words that none of us would want to be associated with.

Official 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 scheduled to hit theaters on March 18.
