PAUL opens Australia wide on April 14th!

Fans of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Spaced, are in for a treat with the upcoming release of PAUL, the new comedy starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost! The story of two Sci-Fi loving fan-boys whose cross country trek lands them with a different kind of Hitch-hiker; the Area 51 escapee alien PAUL (voiced by Seth Rogen).

In conjunction with Universal Pictures and Filmink we are bringing you this opportunity to meet two of the biggest stars in genre entertainment today. Simon and Nick will be doing a SINGLE Q&A session at 11 am on the Saturday of the Melbourne Supanova, which will then be followed by a free signing session.

Brisbane fans have not been left out though, we're running a competition on The Supanova website to win free tickets to an exclusive screening of PAUL in Brisbane! Keep an eye out on the Supanova Twitter and Facebook for more information!

Universal Pictures is calling all Simon Pegg and Nick Frost fans to head to the red carpet on Thursday 7th April, 6pm at Hoyts Melbourne Central. Host Tim Ferguson will be on the red carpet in search of Simon and Nick's biggest fans!
