Hitch a ride with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in the Paul trailer!

Oct. 18, 2010by: Mike Sampson

The teaser trailer for Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's upcoming comedy PAUL debuted in UK theaters this weekend attached to prints of THE SOCIAL NETWORK. Sadly it did not premiere in theaters here in the US. Lucky for you, we've got the clip online so you can watch for yourself.

While the footage at Comic-Con had more in the way of laughs, this teaser seems to play up the adventure/action parts of the film (though they do save a pretty funny bit for the end). It's just a quick taste of the film, which hits theaters next March, but what do you think? Check out the PAUL trailer below!

Looks better than expected

I wasn't sure about this movie, but this trailer was pretty awesome.
I'm glad the alien didn't turn out as cartoony as I was expecting, but Seth Rogen's voice absolutely does not fit at all. I forgot Jason Bateman was in this aswell, awesome.

Can't WAIT to see this. Haha, anyone else laugh at the beginning when the announcer says "they're best buds", and Simon looks at Nick, and Nick raises his eyebrows? That had me cracking up. It's little things like that that make these two guys work together so well. The last line of the trailer had me in stitches too. I might avoid a full trailer just so I can have all the laughs unspoiled for me.

Alien's strangely distracting. I keep thinking Roger from American Dad as well and Rogen's voice is not working for me. Kinda want it to shut up and let Pegg and Frost do their thing.

loved everything but...

...the alien.

which is what this movie is kinda riding on.. i'll hold judgment for when I actually see it though. Can't Rogen alter his voice just a tiny bit for a voice-over character? just once?

HUGE Simon Pegg fan and even if the movie isn't great, I'm sure him and Frost will get enough laughs out of me to see it.

This has been on my most-anticipated list for a while. And I'm still reallllly looking forward to it. But Rogen to the voice... ehhhh. I dunno. I feel like they could've gotten someone a little more perfect and it would've fit just right.

Even though we only see him for about a split second, Bateman looks badass as an FBI (I presume) agent.

Heard about this awhile back and looks pretty good. From the director of Superbad and Adventureland with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, but Rogen as the alien? COME ON :(

Yeah Idk about Rogen's voice, but I dont think theres any real reason to not think this is going to be a good movie. Pegg & Frost have yet to fail us as has Mottola. Looking forward to March!

I love these guys but does anyone else think the alien looks a lot like Roger from American Dad?

Not much in the trailer dialogue wise but the cowboy bit was pretty funny!
