Empire, being the lovely magazine that it is, has a couple new images from Paul, the upcoming sci-fi road trip movie from Greg Mottola starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as comic geeks on the road who end up hanging out with an alien (voiced by Seth Rogen). One pic features Simon Pegg and the looming threat of FBI agent Bill Hader while the other shows off a few cast members (including the hilarious Kristen Wiig) and the CG alien Paul… looking up at something. Yeah, I’m excited, too.
After the regrettable box office (but not critical) failure of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, I’m not going to make any predictions about the success of Paul. Superbad was a huge hit and everybody loves Shaun of the Dead, but nobody goes to good movies anymore so this movie will surely tank and those same people will wonder why nobody makes good movies anymore. I am, however, positive the film will be hilarious, considering the people involved — I love both Superbad and Adventureland, so I look forward to anything Greg Mottola does. If that weren’t enough, Pegg and Frost even wrote the thing!
