*smiles politely, looks around to see if anyone else seems to know what ‘Phineas and Ferb’ is*
Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright, and Nick Frost tie one on one last time.
The British know how to make great television, as illustrated in these five shows like “Misfits” that Anglophiles will adore. Free your xenophobic television from reruns of American shows by…
The funnyman will be required to lose height for the role.
Too much madness to explain in one excerpt.
If you want an indie, Shaun of the Dead-ie take on aliens… it’s coming… soon.
It looks, feels, and tastes so good.
Let’s hope it’s subtitled.
Paul is like all those comedies I used to like, the kind where they were just plain good.
DIRECTOR: Greg Mottola
CAST: Simon Pegg; Nick Frost; Seth Rogen; Jason Bateman; Kristen Wiig; Sigourney Weaver
SYNOPSIS: Two British comic-book geeks traveling across the U.S. encounter an alien outside Area 51.
Ever since Shaun Of The Dead, people have wondered, “Hey, when will we get something else like Shaun Of The Dead?” The answer is, right now.
Comic-Con, secret government alien (?) weed, girl-on-robot sex: these are the topics that all movies should be discuss.
A handful of rather high profile films have been added to the lineup of March’s South by Southwest film festival, including Greg Mottola’s Paul, Jodie Foster’s The Beaver, and a new documentary entitled Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop.
I was a little let down when I saw the original UK trailer for Greg Mottola’s Paul. With all the poop jokes and nut shots, it felt a little too Kangaroo Jack for my tastes. But after viewing this domestic trailer, I’m looking forward.
Normally, a character that is completely CGI comes off as kind of corny, with a few obvious exceptions (LOTR, Avatar, etc.). But for Paul, it might actually add to the laughs.
Over the weekend we got c*ck-teased with snippets of images from a first look at Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson's The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn: Longest Title Ever. Now Empire has officially unbuttoned its blouse and unleashed the goods. We have three honest-to-goodness official images.
Jamie Bell plays Tintin and Snowy his dog is played by…not Andy Serkis! Haha! Gotchu! You totally thought that since it was a mo-cap animal it HAD to be Andy Serkis. He's not in every mo-cap movie, ya know? But he is in this one, as Captain Haddock. You couldn't keep that guy away from a unitard with diodes on it if you tried.
The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn: Longest Title Ever doesn't come out until next Christmas, so check out the pics after the jump to get a taste.
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have teamed up in the past to take on horror and the action genre, now they've set their sights on sci-fi. As this teaser for Paul will show you, the pair play nuuurrrdddssss who encounter an alien outside of Area 51.
Not much comedy is shown in this teaser and I need to applaud Greg Mottola's restraint in not having the alien play air guitar or perform a Black Eyed Peas song. Because that's the constant temptation and danger with working with CGI characters. Before you even realize it, you've veered into Alvin and the Chipmunks territory.
Check out the teaser after the jump…
