Paul

(2011)

For the past 60 years, an alien named Paul has been hanging out at a top-secret military base. For reasons unknown, the space-traveling smart ass decides to escape the compound and hop on the first vehicle out of town -- a rented RV containing Earthlings Graeme Willy and Clive Gollings. Chased by federal agents and the fanatical father of a young woman that they accidentally kidnap, Graeme and Clive hatch a fumbling escape plan to return Paul to his mother ship. And, as two nerds struggle to help, one little green man might just take his fellow outcasts from misfits to intergalactic heroes.

Simon Pegg and Greg Mottolla Talk ‘Paul’ Blu-ray

Simon Pegg along with co-star Nick Frost on the set of Paul Back in June, Universal Studios Home Entertainment invited a group of journalists to sit down and have dinner with actor/screenwriter Simon Pegg and director Greg Mottola to discuss their wonderful comedy Paul, which hits shelves on Blu-ray and DVD this Tuesday, August 9.

For those unfamiliar with Paul, the movie stars Simon Pegg and his longtime co-star/co-writer Nick Frost as Graeme Willy and Clive Gollings, a pair of British geeks who travel to America to visit San Diego Comic-Con along with a slew of extra-terrestrial hot spots across the country. Ironically enough, they come across an actual alien named Paul (voiced by Seth Rogen) as they set off on a hilarious journey to get Paul back home.
