Paul Synopsis

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 directed by Superbad's Greg Mottola, from a story by Pegg & Frost. Joining the comedy's cast are Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Blythe Danner, Joe Lo Truglio, John Carroll Lynch, David Koechner and Sigourney Weaver.

Paul casts Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as a pair of two geek friends road tripping across America with a runaway alien named Paul, voiced by Seth Rogen. It's like a perfect geek sandwich, all wrapped up in dueling British accents. It's also directed by the mega-talented Greg Mottola (he's helmed Superbad, several eps of Arrested Development, and the vastly underrated Adventureland)....

Weekend Box Office - Limitless Tops Weekend of Limited Excitement Weekend Box Office - Limitless Tops Weekend of Limited Excitement
Despite the arrival of the first day of spring, things weren't exactly coming up roses for the box office this weekend. Three new arrivals made mediocre entrances as overall sales continue to slip. Limitless snagged the number one spot with $19 million. That's not terrible news for the movie itself since it's on track to turn a quick profit against a $27 million budget. It is, however, bad news for the box office in general. ...

Paul Gets A Red Band Trailer So Kristen Wiig Can Smoke Pot Paul Gets A Red Band Trailer So Kristen Wiig Can Smoke Pot
Paul has a new, red band trailer. Why is it a red band trailer? At some point in the trailer Simon Pegg grabs Kristen Wiig’s boob, but she’s wearing a shirt so I’m pretty sure that’s not it. There’s not a lot of red band activity going on in this trailer, except for a scene where Kristen Wiig smokes pot. Is that red band material? The red band warning in front of this trailer would seem to suggest it is....
