Simon Pegg’s Paul open today in UK
Simon Pegg’s newest sci-fi comedy Paul opened today, on his birthday, in the UK. Pegg stars and co-wrote the film about a road trip with a couple of Brit-geeks who encounter a real alien in the Southwest American desert. Reviews are mostly positive so far, with a 65% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Empire deems Paul "clever, cheeky and very, very funny". And the Hollywood Reporter says Paul is a "sci-fi spoof for everyone with funny encounters that will require close attention.". And regarding Pegg, THR notes: "With secure spots in the Star Trek and Mission: Impossible franchises, and The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn coming up, Pegg is now an established star with a patented mix of good-guy innocence and street smarts".
Paul will open in the US March 18th. More info at www.whatispaul.com.
