Have you ever wondered what E.T. would have been like had he come to Earth as a bug-eyed, three foot tall, pot-smoking, horny, foul-mouthed little alien? No? Me, neither, but fortunately for us Greg Mottola, the director of Superbad and Adventureland, and Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, the acting duo from Shawn of The Dead and Hot Fuzz, have wondered and the result is this (crosses fingers) seemingly hilarious tale of an alien on the lam with two British sci-fi/comic book nerds.
Check out the redband trailer for Paul after the jump and let me know if you think this is going to be lame or not. Honestly, I was intrigued by the first trailers, but not estatic. Maybe it’s the scent of spring in the air, but this redband trailer has me embracing the cast (Jason Bateman and Kristen Wiig) and hoping for some good laughs. One thing is for certain: We’d all love to embrace Seth Rogen again after some serious cinematic floppage on his part lately.
