We have five clips from Greg Mottola’s upcoming sci-fi comedy Paul. The film centers on two geeks (played by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost) who must help an alien (voiced by Seth Rogen) return to his mothership. I haven’t watched the clips since I’m seeing the film later this week and don’t want to be spoiled. However, if you can’t wait to get a glimpse of the film (I don’t blame you), then you can check out the clips after the jump.
Paul also stars Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Sigourney Weaver, Jane Lynch, Joe Lo Truglio, and Bill Hader. The film opens March 18th.

Here’s the official synopsis:
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) reunite for the comedy adventure Paul as two sci-fi geeks whose pilgrimage takes them to America’s UFO heartland. While there, they accidentally meet an alien who brings them on an insane road trip that alters their universe forever.
For the past 60 years, an alien named Paul (voiced by Seth Rogen) has been hanging out at a top-secret military base. For reasons unknown, the space-traveling smart ass decides to escape the compound and hop on the first vehicle out of town—a rented RV containing Earthlings Graeme Willy (Pegg) and Clive Collings (Frost).
Chased by federal agents and the fanatical father of a young woman that they accidentally kidnap, Graeme and Clive hatch a fumbling escape plan to return Paul to his mother ship. And as two nerds struggle to help, one little green man might just take his fellow outcasts from misfits to intergalactic heroes.
