Paul is an alien from outer space who likes to moon people, use his invisibility powers to show up randomly naked, and laugh just like Seth Rogen.
There’s a new trailer for the film out today, and even though it says nothing about the exact quest the alien and his new spaced-out friends (played by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost) are going on, it’s still a shiny example of some solid comedy.
Plus, there’s at least three major science fiction film references just in the trailer alone.
They’re all pretty obvious:
The Star Trek phasers reference at 0:34
The E.T./Reece’s Pieces reference at 0:48
The Predator invisibility reference at 1:14
Doing the math here, if the trailer is 1% of the movie, that means the film will have right around 300 science fiction film references. I’d expect nothing less from director Greg Mottola and the team of Pegg/Frost.
