Get ready for close encounters of the freakin' awesome kind.

When a couple of sci-fi fans decide to take a road trip to Area 51, they never expect who, or rather, what they’ll meet there. Written by and starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, and directed by SUPERBAD's Greg Mottola, PAUL boasts an incredible cast of acting and comedic talents, including Kristen Wigg, Jason Bateman, Bill Hader, Joe Lo Truglio, Jane Lynch, Sigourney Weaver and Seth Rogen as Paul!

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (HOT FUZZ, SHAUN OF THE DEAD) reunite for the comedy adventure PAUL as two sci-fi geeks whose pilgrimage takes them to America’s UFO heartland. While there, they accidentally meet an alien who brings them on an insane road trip that alters their universe forever.

For the past 60 years, an alien named Paul (Seth Rogen) has been hanging out at a top-secret military base. For reasons unknown, the space-travelling smart ass decides to escape the compound and hop on the first vehicle out of town - a rented RV containing Earthlings Graeme Willy (Pegg) and Clive Gollings (Frost).

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. While two nerds struggle to help, one little green man might just take his fellow outcasts from misfits to intergalactic heroes.
