Paul is the newest movie from Greg Mottola who directed Superbad and Adventureland. It is, of course, a comedy about a couple of sci-fi geek buddies (Nick Frost and Simon Pegg) who go on a roadtrip to Area 51 and run into an alien who has escaped a military compound. The alien is Paul, and he is a CGI creation voiced by Seth Rogen. Frost and Pegg actually wrote the screenplay, so I see plenty of British humor coming into play here. Hearing any British person say “schedule” makes my day. The movie also stars Kristen Wiig, Jane Lynch, Sigourney Weaver, Jason Bateman, Bill Hader, Blythe Danner, Jeffrey Tambor, and David Koechner.
Paul is in theatres March 18, 2011.
