and Simon Pegg are back. After tackling zombies in Shaun of the Dead and action movies in Hot Fuzz, they are turning their sights on aliens in Paul, directed by Greg Mottola (Superbad).

The latest comedy is about two comic-book geeks who travel across the U.S. to visit the famed Area 51, only to encounter a real alien (voiced by Seth Rogen). Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Jane Lynch and Sigourney Weaver also star in the movie that hits theaters March 18, 2011 in the U.S.

Check out the trailer below that hints at the plot (but not the comedy that is sure to ensue), and let me know what you think in the comments section!
