STARRING Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and Seth Rogen
DIRECTED BY Greg Mottola

Turns out that the truth really is out there. In this sci-fi comedy directed by Greg Mottola (Superbad, Adventureland), two geeks (Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, who also co-wrote the flick) travel to Area 51 on a lark only to find a real alien — the titular Paul. To make matters weirder, that extraterrestrial speaks with the jovial stoner intonation of Seth Rogen. A rogues gallery of funny people — Bill Hader, Kristen Wiig, Jane Lynch, Jeffrey Tambor — also make appearances.
