The New Paul Movie Trailer Looks Irritatingly Good

I don’t mean that it looks so amazingly good that it’s irritating. I mean that the fact that this movie buddy-road-trip-with-an-alien movie — a concept that was clearly first dreamed up between 1987 and 1994 by the same group of Hollywood executives/drug fiends that gave us shit like Harry and the Hendersons and Free Willy — looks so good anyways that it’s a little obnoxious to me. Yes, I know it’s got Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in it, and they’re as reliable a source of movie comedy as exists nowadays, but seriously — if some told you a couple of years ago about a movie where two nerds take a cross-country trip with an alien voiced by Seth Rogen, would you have guessed that it would be genuinely funny looking? Yeah, me too. (Via First Showing)
