In the next minute or so, Collider is going to be flooded with Paul coverage.  That’s because last August, right after Comic-Con, I got to visit the set while the production was filming in New Mexico.  With the embargo lifting this morning on all our coverage, Universal has graciously provided us with the first official images from the production.  While all the images are sprinkled in with my coverage, I wanted to do a separate post so they’d be easy to find.  So hit the jump to check out the first images of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in Greg Mottola’s Paul!  You might even see me in one of the shots.  Read my set visit for how I’m in the picture.

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.

Paul is directed by Superbad’s Greg Mottola, from a story by Pegg & Frost.  Joining the comedy’s cast are Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Blythe Danner, Joe Lo Truglio, John Carroll Lynch, David Koechner and Sigourney Weaver.
