Yesterday we posted the first teaser poster for Greg Mottola’s upcoming comedy Paul. Today we’ve got our hands on the international trailer for the film that centers on aliens, government conspiracies, and Comic-Con. Because when stuff hits the fan Comic-Con is usually at the center of it all. Check out the new trailer…
This trailer features more of Jason Bateman’s character, which we’re all for. He plays a tough as nails FBI Agent named Lorenzo Zoil. Get it? Lorenzo Zoil? Think about it for a minute. We’ll wait.
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 domestic theaters on March 18.
