PAUL Film Review

Sunday, March 20th, 2011





Here’s an idea; let’s take the most endearing and lovable alien in cinematic history, ET, and hand his story over to the people that made Superbad and see what happens. Well, the end result is Paul and it’s a blast, pun intended. The concept is great. Finally we have a cool alien who is hip, witty, in touch with humanity, and can speak normal English. Ironically, I would say that this is one of Seth Rogen’s best performances. Throw in some Simon Pegg and Nick Frost and you’ve got quite a combo. READ FULL MOVIE REVIEW

Saturday, January 8th, 2011

Here is the trailer from Universal Pictures upcoming film, PAUL. The movie is directed by Greg Mottola, starring Nick Frost, Simon Pegg, Seth Rogen, Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Jane Lynch, Sigourney Weaver, Joe Lo Truglio, David Koechner, Blythe Danner and John Carroll Lynch

PAUL opens in theaters March 18, 2011

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
