Seth Rogen, Simon Pegg in red band “Paul” trailer


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Yesterday we ran the red band trailer for Cameron Diaz’s summer comedy “Bad Teacher.” This morning, we posted the second trailer for Jake Gyllenhaal’s SXSW thriller “Source Code.” And now we’ve encountered a red band trailer for a SXSW comedy.

It’s like blending the best of both worlds.

Or, considering that this red band is for “Paul,” perhaps we should say it’s out of this world. The comedy, which stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as comic enthusiasts who have a close encounter with an extraterrestrial (voiced by Seth Rogen), will play SXSW in Austin ahead of its March 18 wide opening.

Kristen Wiig, Jason Bateman, Jane Lynch, Bill Hader and Sigourney Weaver contribute to the ensemble. And “Paul,” from the looks of this trailer, could be vulgarly entertaining, in a “Superbad” kind of way. (Greg Mottola, who helmed “SB,” directs “Paul,” as well.) Pegg and Frost also have more than enough chemistry to carry the premise.

IGN has the red band premiere, so pop over there and check it out.

We’ll be on the ground in Austin when “Paul” premieres, so prepare for plenty of “Paul” coverage, partners. Ah, sweet alliteration.
