Movie Poster Design #12: Teaser for Paul
“A leaked version of this appeared online last week, but now here’s a better look at the Paul one-sheet “spotlight” poster. Here’s your chance to glory in Nick Frost and Simon Pegg’s haircuts for the film, and get to know Seth Rogen’s little grey man.
The plot, as many of you will know by now, sees Pegg and Frost star as Graeme and Clive, two British geeks on a road trip across the US. No great stretch, you might think - until they meet an alien and their troubles really begin.
It has an all-star comedy cast, with Jason Bateman, Jane Lynch, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Jeffrey Tambor, David Koechner, Joe Lo Truglio and more onboard. The finished film is due out here on February 14 (presumably Frost and Pegg’s way of celebrating their long bromance) and in the US on March 18.”
“Paul is directed by filmmaker Greg Mottola, of The Daytrippers, episodes of “Undeclared”, Superbad and Adventureland previously. The screenplay was written by the two co-stars, Nick Frost and Simon Pegg, of “Spaced” and Shaun of the Dead fame. Apparently they rebuilt most of the Comic-Con showfloor out in New Mexico to shoot some of the big convention scenes in this. Universal is bringing Paul to theaters everywhere on March 18th early next year. Stay tuned for more updates and visit the official website: whatispaul.com.”
