Paul is the product of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost combining they’re geeky love of all things geek into a screen play. That screenplay was then directed by Greg Mottola, of Adventureland/Superbad fame. This has been one of the bigger films for, geek wise, for 2011. There was a preview shown at Comic Con this year, but other than that, not much. We know that it stars Pegg and Frost, with Kirstin Wiig, Jason Bateman, Bill Hader, Sigourney Weaver and Seth Rogen as the voice of Paul.
If you didn’t see the sneak peek at Comic Con, the first teaser is up.
It’s a.. teaser. I honestly can’t get a feel for this thing other than it’s a comedy. It’s the first thing of this scale that Pegg and Frost have worked on with out Edgar Wright. Can they pull the magic with out Wright in charge? Maybe. I’ll hold final judgment after viewing this.
