'Paul' trailer beams down

Popping up all over the net today is the first trailer for the new Simon Pegg/Nick Frost movie Paul. Yes, Pegg & Frost have also headed stateside, independently of their once & future director Edgar Wright (whose Scott Pilgrim Vs The World ranks high on my films of the year); and whilst Shaun of the Dead brought zombies and Hot Fuzz brought gun-toting cops, this one brings a little sci-fi to the mix, as two British fanboys on their way to a US comic convention cross paths with a bona fide extra-terrestrial... called Paul.

The trailer doesn't give too much away, but given the pedigree of talent behind it (at the helm is Greg Mottola, director of Superbad) I don't think it's too unreasonable to anticipate comedy of the highest standard. And on the strength of what we see here, we might also expect a fair amount of shit going boom.

Roll on Spring 2011...
