UK “Paul” Trailer Touches Down on Earth

Relax, fanboys, the trailer for your dearly beloved "Paul," starring Geek Gods Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, is here. And you know what? It ain't half bad.

"Paul" stars Pegg and Frost as a pair of British nerds driving across America who crash into an alien (voiced by Seth Rogen) while cruising through Area 51. With a team of feds--led by Jason Bateman--hot on their heels, they try to help Paul escape having his brain carved up by government doctors.

Despite being fans of pretty much everyone involved--Frost, Pegg, director Gregg Mottola, Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader... we've been a bit suspicious of this one, but the trailer is promising, if not lifechanging. Though, as The Playlist astutely notes, trailers tend to "aim for the cheap seats."

The rest of the film arrives March 18.
