Paul teaser trailer lands

Paul teaser trailer

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's latest comedy outing, Paul , has finally released a teaser trailer.

The British duo, who have previously appeared together in Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz for director/co-conspirator Edgar Wright, are now in the capable comedy hands of Greg Mottola, the man behind Superbad and Adventureland.

The film follows the pair as they road trip across the US, and find themselves on the run from Govenment officials when they pick up an unlikely hitchhiker - an alien named Paul.

You can see the teaser below;

Not many straws to clutch at here, such is the frantic pace of events, but the stand out feature is Paul himself, who doesn't quite convince in his public debut.

Hopefully the animators will have all the kinks worked out by the time this hits screens next year.

On the plus side, the cast is immense. With the ever dependable Jason Bateman hopefully getting to exercise the full extent of his nasty side as the Government agent chasing Paul.

Add to that Mottola regulars Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader, and comedy stalwart David Koechner, and Paul certainly has the ingredients to deliver a comedy classic.

Whatever your thoughts on this promo, there is no doubt that the return of Messers Pegg and Frost is a welcome event. More please, gents.

Paul arrives in cinemas Spring 2011.
