If you’ve been having withdrawals from the genius that is Simon Pegg and Nick Frost‘s comedic duo, then put down the Xanax! You can spend a whole 2 minutes with the guys thanks to this little behind the scenes peek at their new film, Paul. The movie is about two dudes (Pegg and Frost) who are on a road trip when they come across Paul, an alien. Then funny shit happens (apparently, anyway).
We’ve got to admit, when we first read about this film we thought it seemed a little silly, despite the excellent cast and promising credentials. Starring alongside our British friends are Seth Rogen (as the voice of Paul), Kristen Wiig as Pegg’s love interest, Jane Lynch, Jason Bateman, Sigourney Weaver, Jeffrey Tambor and Bill Hader (just to name a few), so surely that means we will at least LOL a little bit. The trailer was a bit ho-hum too. But somehow, despite logic and reason, this little video has won us over.
Maybe it’s the sight of Kristen Wiig with an eye-patch that clinches it. Or thinking about what went down when Simon Pegg and Nick Frost went on a road trip. Or the image of them with an incredibly small cowboy walking down the street. Either way, we’re sold and the film looks freaking hilarious.
Paul is due out in March this year.
