Heads up, Shaun of the Dead/Hot Fuzz/Spaced fans: There's a trailer out for Paul, the long-awaited comedy starring/written by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, and directed by Superbad and Adventureland's Greg Mottola. Also: Jason Bateman. Kristin Wigg. Seth Rogen. Sigourney Weaver. And yes, those are the names of a whole lot of people you like (or should like) quite a bit.
And also: AN ALIEN!
A bit underwhelming? Yeah. But apparently that might be 'cause they're having to save all the good stuff for the red band trailer.
Post-script: From here on out, I'm including the phrase "And also: AN ALIEN!" in everything I write for the Mercury.
