PAUL Starring: Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Seth Rogen, Jason Bateman, Sigourney Weaver, and Kristen Wiig. Written by:Frost and Pegg Directed by: Greg Mottola
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. When he discovers he’s been taken prisoner, 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 Gollings (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

MAJOR SPOILERS POLL OF THE WEEK
Wonder Woman is getting the Tee-Vee treatment, with Adrianne Palicki cast as the Amazon Princess, and Elizabeth Hurley as the villain Veronica Cale. Surprisingly, or not surprisingly, depending on how far down the road you can see, David E. Kelley’s version of the DC Comics hero got a costume change.
The book tells of the adventures of Dr. Michael Ong, a paranormal scientist and former seminarian, who is given a head researcher’s position at an Area 51-esque laboratory in Turlock, California called Research Technical Institute. In exchange for granting the government the lease to build the facility, the City of Turlock demanded that it be staffed primarily by locals. Ong’s task is to open, catalog, and classify each of the hundreds of crates in the facility’s warehouse. Many of the artifacts found inside are proven to be highly dangerous and thoroughly insane…Russian teleporter technology, aliens, mutants, even a were-pig.
