Hunted by federal agents and the fanatical father of Ruth Buggs (Kristen Wiig of Date Night, Knocked Up), a young woman whom they have accidentally kidnapped, Graeme and Clive hatch a fumbling plan to return Paul to his mother ship in one piece. And as two nerds fight to help save an awesome little green man, Paul might just take his fellow outcasts from misfits to intergalactic heroes.
Directed by Gregg Mottola (Superbad, Adventureland) and from a screenplay written by frequent collaborators Pegg & Frost, Paul co-stars an impressive comedic supporting lineup that includes Jason Bateman (Hancock), Bill Hader (Pineapple Express), Blythe Danner (Little Fockers), Joe Lo Truglio (Role Models), John Carroll Lynch (Get Smart), Jane Lynch (Glee), Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development) and Sigourney Weaver (Avatar).
Of course no road movie is complete without a batch of great songs designed to keep the heart pumping, and Paul certainly delivers. In keeping with the well documented love of sci-fi that both Pegg and Frost share, each track has some link to science fiction. It is a more than diverse collection of classics from a range of genres such as punk (Another Girl Another Planet – The Only Ones), soul (Just The Two Of Us – Bill Withers and Grover Washington Jr., Got To Give It Up - Marvin Gaye), rock 'n' roll (Flying Saucers Rock N Roll - Bill Lee Riley), 70s pop/rock (Hello It’s Me - Todd Rundgren, Dancing In The Moonlight - King Harvest, All Over The World - ELO), reggae (I Chase The Devil – Max Romeo) and the 50s sci-fi inspired Planet Clare by B52’s. The film also features Cantina Band’s Syd Masters & The Swing Riders, a rock-a-billy cover of the music playing in the bar on Tatooine in Star Wars: A New Hope – Simon Pegg’s favourite film.
The collection also features exerts from David Arnold’s original score. The complete track listing is as follows:
1. PAUL OPENING TITLE - David Arnold
