Expect to see a lot of him in the next ‘Mission: Impossible’ sequel.
Maybe this means a few more people will go see ‘The Hangover 2′.
Brush up on their projects.
The stars walked about Austin like normal human beings.
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.
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost might be afflicted with the opposite of whatever Samson had. Their long hair totally kills their comedic strength.
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.
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.
