The genius behind Superbad, director Greg Mottola has teamed up with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost for another comedic adventure, this time featuring an alien named Paul, voiced by none other than Seth Rogen. Yeah, it’s basically the pick of the comedian crop in Paul, with the supporting characters being played by none other than Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Blythe Danner, Joe Lo Truglio, John Carroll Lynch, David Koechner and Sigourney Weaver. It will be a travesty if this bad boy isn’t funny.
Though the trailers have been rather mild until now, IGN has just posted a new trailer for the film with a bit more bit…
I’m game! Who doesn’t love a serious Bateman, some good ball humor and a naked/offensive alien??
For the past 60 years, an alien named Paul (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 Gollings (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 hits theaters March 18, 2011.
