Its a romantic comedy movie with the love interests being thirty year previous aliens.
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost bring their lifelong love of science fiction to the large screen within the alien new road trip comedy "Paul," making a fusion genre as they craft a resourceful story with many homages to the past thirty years of alien movies. Shouting out "ET" and "Star Wars" and "Close Encounters of the Third Kind," the writing/starring try, along side director Greg Motolla and co-stars Kristen Wiig, Jason Bateman, Sigourney Weaver, Paul Heder, Joe Lo Truglio and Seth Rogen, produce their own journey that is half buddy movie and half rewritten alien folklore.
The Huffington Post participated in a very personal press conference with variety of reporters, Pegg, Frost and Motolla, where all alien speak — as well as the recent button issue of eating live birds — was on the table. Here’s the transcript, where it applies to the science fiction heart of the film.
Q: Since you bought to understand the forged, who was the foremost like their character, and who was the smallest amount like their character.
Motolla: Bill Hader plays a form of straight laced, FBI, federal agent who, he is reasonably like Gollum, he sees Paul because the ring as his thanks to glory, and he gets a lot of unhinged and crazy as he goes along and type of becomes a full on villain and to a small degree psychotic. and that is very who he’s – he is very a psychotic guy. No, Bill isn’t like that in any respect.
But, you know, they were all enjoying variations of themselves to some extent. i might say Simon and Nick – clearly they don’t seem to be nearly as naïve as these guys, however they play terribly sweet characters during this film, and that is terribly near who they’re. And Paul is incredibly very similar to Seth Rogen. he is foul mouthed and sarcastic and smokes pot. this is often really a biopic regarding Seth Rogen.
