Really dig the PAUL poster... feels fun!

Hey folks, Harry here with the poster to PAUL which debuted in the UK over at EMPIRE, but which we have for you below. I don't know about you, but me... I'm 100% aboard watching any film starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. That's just a given. Throw in Seth Rogen as an alien named PAUL and a roadtrip to Comic Con... well, that's an actual dream I've had. Of course in my dream I was in the vehicle too - and me and Nick were cuddle buddies... he's just so warm, you have to understand, it was a dream, not reality. But, um, yeah... So I know I'm down for PAUL - Here ya go...

    I won't be wathing it for him. However, I will watch ANYTHING from Simon Pegg!

    Nick Frost's face has been all thinned out and handsomed up. Big fat body. Lou Diamond Phillips face.<p> Damn U photoshop. I miss reality.

    Peggsy and Frosty meet an alien... a real alien from outer space... and they decide to name him...(wait for it)... Paul!<p> Hahahaaha, it's so funny!<p> I'd have named him CUNT!

    Crappy marketing on this film so far.

    by Harry Weinstein

    The teaser was awful, and now we get a poster where CGI Simon Pegg looks faker than the CGI alien.

    Rogen? Take him or leave him....

    by whiskey_dick

    Frost and Pegg? Their previous work is more than enough for me to give this the benefit of the doubt. Just doesn't look that great to me. I really hope it's Rogen playing an alien character and not Rogen playing himself through a puppet.

    The alien is real and Frost & Pegg are CGI, right? I'm confused. Why do they do this?

    And with Galaxy Quest and Futurama and even, gulp,

    Superhero Movie, hasn't Comic Con been fodder for enough of the same jokes and parody?

    Seth Rogan is the weak link of this flick.

    by V'Shael

    He's just fucking terrible as a voice actor. As a comedic actor, he runs the gamut from A to A. His card should have been punched with Zack and Miri. Maybe it will be, when the Green Hornet, an expensive movie, falls down dead at the box office before it even grosses 25 million.

  • Nov. 16, 2010, 5:08 p.m. CST

    Observe and Report. Holy fuckin' shit that movie is hilarious! <P> Besides, look at the dude. Does he look like the typical Hollywood star? Fuck no. I say godspeed to him and his career. Maybe give the voice acting a rest for awhile though.<P>

    On board

    by donkey_lasher

    I doubt VERY much that this will be anything like the Blood and Ice Cream trilogy, but just to see how the team of Pegg and Frost do without Wright..............welll, I'm intrigued.<p> It will probable flop.

    The blob thing from Monsters vs. Aliens. That actually would have been hilarious. This will be funny too no doubt. Hot Fuzz is just one of the best all time.

    by Mr Lucas

    You are correct. Pegg is in Steve Coogan territory. He should watch "The Trip" to find out how bitter he's going to be in a few years when his career hits the wall.

    by frank cotton

    but 'hot fuzz' wasn't that funny. i'd watch it again, sure, but it's not CADDYSHACK. this looks decent

  • Nov. 16, 2010, 9:57 p.m. CST

    I don't know how to feel about this...

    by BurnHollywood

    The fact that I liked SHAUN OF THE DEAD and HOT FUZZ is instantly undercut by a big, goofy CGI's like the two factors cancel each other out and I can't help but feel "meh" about this...

  • Nov. 16, 2010, 11:39 p.m. CST

    I'm sorry... why Paul?

    by Anything But Tangerines

    Is this supposed to be funny? An alien named Paul? Does it stand for something? in which case I'm taking a longshot guess that the A stands for alien. fuck it anyhow, looks like shit

    If Simon Pegg raped a six-year-old homeless girl then wiped his arse with a cuddly little kitten, all you cunts would think it's a work of genius. (sigh) So sad.

    I mean really.. look at the fucking abomination of a poster

    by bongo123

    does that really scream "COME WATCH ME"!!!?? if i was a 5y.o. maybe... from the absolute classics of Spaced, Shaun & hotfuzz.. to this and Scott Pilgrim... these boys all need to get there act together and get back together, cause when all 3 are firing, they're fucking brilliant, cant wait to read the unbiased "review"

    Looks like the studios think ..

    by thefakefatshady

    Fat or ginger people dont put bums on seats, hence the thinning of Frosts face and the browning of Peggs hair. Oh while were at it, lets advertise McDonalds in the poster as well.

    Edgar Wright

  • Nov. 17, 2010, 6:52 a.m. CST

    Love those dudes

    by ianlegend

    But the trailer looked terrible and the poster looks shite - both because of the alien. He looks as bad as that stupid fucking animated thing on the Lost In Space film and he's voiced by Seth Rogen. What the FUCK were they thinking. Prove me wrong, chaps, prove me wrong.

  • Nov. 17, 2010, 7:09 a.m. CST

    Maybe Frost's photoshop job is for a reason...

    by onezeroone

    and reason being... notice how similar his chin is to the alien. Won't be surprised if they copy-pasted alien's chin while photoshopping.
