Yahoo! Movies UK has debuted the international trailer for Paul, the sci-fi comedy directed by Greg Mottola (Superbad), and written by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.
Pegg and Frost star as two geeks who, while on a road trip across the United States, cross paths with an alien (voiced by Seth Rogen) that's escaped from a top-secret military base. The ensemble cast also includes Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Jane Lynch, Sigourney Weaver, Blythe Danner, Jeffrey Tambor and Gilbert Gottfried. 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.
Paul opens on Feb. 18 in the U.K. and on March 18 in the U.S. Watch the HD trailer at Yahoo! Movies UK.
