Paul – Movie Trailer

Paul – Movie Trailer

Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz were two high water marks in the history of Cool Shite, Shaun of the dead was an early film that we all loved equally, while Hot fuzz was one of the first big opportunities we got to help promote a film, and consequently to do an interview with the director; Edgar Wright.  We loved Nick Frost in “Hyperdrive” … sort of. And Simon Pegg hasn’t put too many feet wrong, apart from “How to Lose Friends and Influence Public Opinion of Your Movie Career”. Now they’re back together and we’re excited. Sadly though, it’s not a Cornetto trilogy film, as Edgar Wright isn’t involved, can they weave the same magic sans their buddy director? Check it out and decide for yourself!

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 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…

Does it look like a winner? Or is the lack of Edgar Wright too much to bear?  Feedback alien lovers!  Oh and for the record, is it just me or is the cowboy costume joke a rehash of “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back”? And half the episodes of “American Dad” for that matter…
