In Case You Were Worried, Like Me...

... by the trailers for Paul, out this weekend, director Greg Mottola 'splains:

“That high-low comedy [Simon pegg and Nick Frost] have works on a couple of levels,” Mr. Mottola said. “It’s silly but also smart.”

Ordering another tall glass of beer, however, Mr. Mottola wondered whether audiences would see it that way. He worried about the latest trailer, which portrayed Paul as an extraterrestrial frat boy.

“Probably every puerile joke is in there,” he said. “They’re obviously in a different context in the movie because the character is irreverent. He doesn’t respect authority.”

He added, “I’d like to believe it’s a slightly more soulful movie than people expect from the trailer.”

Yes, I would like to believe that too! Not that anything will keep me from seeing a movie that has Sigourney Weaver, Kristen Wiig, and Jane Lynch in it.
