Trailer for Paul, with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost

The teaser trailer is now online for Paul, the latest film from comedy duo Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.

The pair co-wrote the script, which appeared on the 2008 film-industry-compiled Black List, which includes some of the best un-produced screenplays.

Despite the fact that both Pegg and Frost star in Paul, it will not be included as part of their ‘Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy’ – along with Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz – as it is not directed Edgar Wright. However, the pair will be joined by a fairly star-studded cast, including Jason Bateman, Jane Lynch, and Sigourney Weaver, as well as the voice of Seth Rogen.

Pegg and Frost play a pair of geeky sci-fi fans who go on a road trip through America. Whilst visiting Area 51, they unwittingly find themselves joined by Paul, a CGI extra terrestrial who insists on accompanying them on their journey. This, of course, prompts all manner of comedy capers – from avoiding pursuant federal agents to the accidental kidnap of a young woman and a misconstrued plan to return Paul back to his mother ship.

Sigourney Weaver has already described Paul as “a love letter to Comic-Con” – where some of the film is set and where the cast took part in an Q&A session. So, along with those who are already fans of the hilarious Pegg/Frost dynamic, this film is likely to have a large number of sci-fi and comic fans who will be just as excited about its release early next year.
