New Poster and Trailer for Paul Starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost
12.18.10 by Ryan
Publicity materials for the upcoming comedy Paul are slowly trickling out. The official synopsis was finally released in July, and the international teaser trailer only just released in October. The movie — about two British, sci-fi geeks traveling across America who cross paths with an actual extraterrestrial — was written by and stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, who have teamed up previously in Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.
With a March 18, 2011, release date looming, new promotional materials are making their way online, including a new domestic teaser poster, as well as a full-length international trailer, which gives a more detailed look into the character of Paul (voiced by Seth Rogen).
Online reaction to the trailer was been swift, and Pegg was quick to thank fans via his Twitter page.
Thanks for all the trailer love. It definitely highlights the broader comedic aspects but then marketing IS all about bums ... on seats.
FYI Paul will be available to view in glorious 1D in select cinemas, although if I'm totally honest we didn't film it with 1D cameras.
Paul was directed by Greg Mottola and co-stars Bill Hader, Jason Bateman, Sigourney Weaver, Kristen Wiig, and Blythe Danner.
