‘Paul’ Teaser Dusts Off The Alien From ‘Meatballs 2’

Like a shooting star sent from the heavens above the first teaser for Greg Mottola’s latest film, Paul has finally arrived. The film reunites Simon Pegg and Nick Frost for the first time outside of their work with Edgar Wright in a story about two buddies on a Winnebago road trip across the United States. Their travels through Area 51 bring them in close contact with an alien named Paul, and soon the adventure is on as they’re forced to evade the feds, entertain the ladies, and have a good time at Comic-Con!

The film co-stars Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Jane Lynch, Sigourney Weaver, Bill Hader, Blythe Danner, Jeffrey Tambor, Joe Lo Truglio, and the smooth vocal-stylings of Seth Rogen as the title alien.

Check out the teaser below.

Well, it’s no Hot Fuzz.

But to be fair no one really expected it to be. Hopefully this is a rare case of the marketing department not wanting to unload all the funniest bits into the trailers saving nothing for the film itself. It looks like a road trip film made of equal parts Fanboys and Mac and Me, but I have faith that the script by Pegg and Frost is noticeably better than both of those. Find out when Paul opens nationwide on March 18th of next year.
