FIRST LOOK: Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in 'Paul'

This is a movie I've been excited about since I heard of it.  Paul stars geek favorites Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) and is about two comic book fans from the UK that make a vacation of coming to Comic-Con.  They also decide to rent an RV and head out to some famous UFO sites...including Area 51.  *SPOILER ALERT* It's there that they encounter an alien named Paul (voiced by Seth Rogen) who has decided that he no longer wants to stay at Area 51.  So he joins up with them and they are persued by the government, and an angry dad of the girl (SNL's Kristin Wiig) they accidentally kidnap. *END SPOILER*

They did indeed film some scenes at Comic-Con last year, but they also re-created much of it in a convention center in New Mexico.  From the looks of it, they did an amazing job.  Take the jump to see the first images from Paul...
