Simon Pegg’s “Paul” premieres, earns raves


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Simon Pegg and Nick Frost premiered their sci-fi/comic-book/alien comedy “Paul” last night in London with a purple-carpet affair at famed Leicester Square. But it was thousands of miles around the globe, in the heart of the American southwest, where the “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz” duo found inspiration for their latest effort.

“We did the road trip (through the U.S.) initially as a way of getting a free holiday out of Universal but it was an incredibly inspiring time and a lot of what happened on that trip, we fed into the script. It was a great adventure,” Simon Pegg told the Press Association.

Frost chimed in, saying, “It is work, but you’re also with your best mate, Sigourney Weaver’s there, and you’re driving an RV in the desert, and it’s beautiful, and the food’s great, too.”

Even better, THR film critic Ray Bennett says the film is great, as well. “There are so many references to science-fiction films and comic book characters in Universal’s affectionate, funny and action-packed sci-fi spoof Paul that there should be a prize for anyone who gets them all,” he writes in THR.

“Paul” stars Pegg and Frost as Comic-Con attendees who discover an alien (voiced by Seth Rogen), and must protect him from various human forces who no doubt mean the extraterrestrial harm. The film will have its North American premiere next month at the South By Southwest film festival in Austin, Texas.
