Seth Rogen and Simon Pegg bringing Paul to Blu-ray
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced that the extra terrestrial comedy PAUL, starring Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Jane Lynch, Jason Bateman and featuring the voice of Seth Rogen, will be released in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack on August 9, 2011. The film follows two British comic geeks who are traveling across the United States and along the way encounter an alien outside the infamous Area 51. For a comedy that opened up in March, PAUL didn’t do too bad bringing in over $37 million at the box office. There were a lot of good reviews about the film, but it is definitely not one of those movies for those that get offended easily.
I really like the team of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost and I’m optimistic about this movie. Although I’m not sure it will be one of those that will lend itself to multiple viewings, but you never know. Special features include:
