Was anyone else just a little bit disappointed that Simon Pegg and Nick Frost didn't at least have cameos in 'Scott Pilgrim vs. the World'? Well, they'll be back together with director Edgar Wright in the future, but in the meantime the two stars of 'Shaun of the Dead' and 'Hot Fuzz' and the cult TV series 'Spaced' are reunited for the sci-fi comedy 'Paul,' which they also wrote together. Directed by Gregg Mottola ('Superbad'), the movie is about two comic book geeks whose Comic-Con-centered road trip changes course when they meet the titular escaped alien -- voiced by Seth Rogen -- in the desert outside Area 51.
So get excited about the first look at this highly anticipated comedy, which also features Jason Bateman, Sigourney Weaver, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Jane Lynch and Jeffrey Tambor, as MSN Movies has debuted an exclusive teaser trailer that's filled with Pegg and Frost acting both dorky and frightened, just the way we like them. It may slightly resemble parts of 'Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back' with the orangutan replaced with a dancing, smoking alien, and Rogen's voice may seem very, very ill-fitting and distracting, but that lead duo plus that supporting ensemble plus another road movie from the guy who made the criminally under-seen 'Daytrippers' equals enough faith that this is still the must-see release of March 18, 2011.
Watch the teaser after the jump.
