This mission just got a lot more impossibler.

The trailer would indicate a little of the ‘Bourne’ DNA in this one. And an Eminem song.

Paul is like all those comedies I used to like, the kind where they were just plain good.

‘Paul’ Looks Like A Kids Film With Lots Of F-Bombs
Wednesday, February 23 by

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost might be afflicted with the opposite of whatever Samson had. Their long hair totally kills their comedic strength.

New ‘Paul’ Trailer: Now With Comedy!
Thursday, January 6 by

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.

New ‘Paul’ Trailer Crash-Lands on the Internet
Friday, December 17 by

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.

For Reals First Look at Spielberg and Jackson’s ‘The Adventures of Tintin’
Monday, November 1 by

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.

Finally Get A Look At ‘Paul’ In New Teaser
Monday, October 18 by

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…

‘Burke And Hare’ Trailer Could Use Some Life
Tuesday, October 5 by

When did Maxim shoots get so old timey?
I know that I work for the Internet and am supposed to automatically love everything Simon Pegg does by default, but this trailer for Burke and Hare really doesn't portray the film in a favorable light. Andy Serkis's motion capture looks really convincing. It's almost looks like he's real.
The story is based on the true story of Irish serial killers in Edinburgh, Scotland who murder their victims to then sell them as medical cadavers. The trailer cites the desire to save enough money to bang Isla Fisher as the motive behind the slayings. I can't imagine a court where that defense wouldn't hold up.
Check out the trailer after the jump…

Simon Pegg at Robert Kennedy’s Funeral?

In 1968, Pegg would have been two years old, so either he's got a doppelganger out there, or he's REALLY into "Quantum Leap."
