New Star Trek Celeb Trailers: Simon Pegg’s ‘Paul’ (w/ Trek gag) + Karl Urban’s ‘Priest’

We have to wait until 2012 to see the new Star Trek stars back on the bridge of the Enterprise, but you will be able to catch most of them on the big screen this year. A couple of new trailers have been released for Star Trek celeb films: the US trailer for Simon Pegg’s comedy Paul (featuring a Star Trek gag), and a new trailer for Karl Urban’s vampire film Priest. Check them both out below

Paul, the next movie for Star Trek’s new Scotty brings Simon Pegg back to his comedy roots. Here is the new US trailer for this sci-fi road comedy, featuring a Star Trek from the film:

Oh, Karl, you’ve been making excellent choices so far — your character on Red being one of the best, and considering the cast, that’s saying something — I’m afraid Priest may be off the mark….

It’s about time for another Riddick movie, with Urban reprising his roles from Chronicles….

Paul actually looks like fun! Not interested in the other. (Sorry, Karl.)

I don’t really like vampire stuff, so I doubt I will be see the Priest. Not sure about Paul though. That seemed a lighthearted and fun film.

There were actually two Star Trek references…

“Stoke the fire.” – Deep Space Nine

No mention of Christopher Plummer (The Undiscovered Country’s ‘General Chang’) being in Priest too?

Both look good! Pegg seems to have put on a bit of weight, I wonder was that a conscious decision to “grow” with the role of Scotty?

Forgot to mention, some of those audio voice-overs in the Paul trailer were horribly mangled by the editor. Must do better.

I am kind of embarrassed to say that I think Paul looks pretty funny.

Priest looks like it could be either very good or very bad…hopefully better than the overrated Hellboy dumb movies.

Paul looks absolutely hilarious, a must see I think. Not so sure about Priest,

“It’s not like I set my phaser to faint….” lol

I always look forward to seeing a new Simon Pegg/Nick Frost movie, but after watching that trailer, I feel like I’ve seen the whole movie. I hate it when trailers do that…

McCoy and Chang take on cgi monsters.


I am afraid I just saw all the best bits in the trailer. Still can’t wait for this movie to open in the U.S.

I loved the trailer for Paul. I laughed out loud. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are my favorite comedy duo. I will watch anything they are in. Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz are two of my favorite films. I plan to see Paul when it is released in . I don’t really care for vampire films so I will probably skip Priest.

movie looks pretty good
