A new clip from the upcoming road trip film Paul starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost hit the web today, courtesy of Empire. Directed by Superbad’s Greg Mottola and written by Pegg and Frost, Paul follows two British comic book geeks who pack up and head cross country to Comic-Con International. However, along the way, the duo becomes a trio when they discover an escaped alien named Paul (voiced by Seth Rogen).
Here’s the official synopsis:
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) reunite for the comedy adventure Paul as two sci-fi geeks whose pilgrimage takes them to America’s UFO heartland. While there, they accidentally meet an alien who brings them on an insane road trip that alters their universe forever.
For the past 60 years, an alien named Paul (voiced by Seth Rogen) has been hanging out at a top-secret military base. For reasons unknown, the space-traveling smart ass decides to escape the compound and hop on the first vehicle out of town—a rented RV containing Earthlings Graeme Willy (Pegg) and Clive Collings (Frost).
Chased by federal agents and the fanatical father of a young woman that they accidentally kidnap, Graeme and Clive hatch a fumbling escape plan to return Paul to his mother ship. And as two nerds struggle to help, one little green man might just take his fellow outcasts from misfits to intergalactic heroes.
The clip below features a scene with Pegg, Frost, Paul and Saturday Night Live cast member Kristin Wiig. Hitting theaters in the U.K. on Feb. 14 and in the U.S. on March 18, the film also features Jason Bateman, Bill Hader, Jane Lynch, Sigourney Weaver and Blythe Danner.
