Third Installment Of The Cornetto Trilogy Not Even Started, C'mon Guys!If you don't speak geek-ese like we do, here's a translation: The "Three Flavours Cornetto" trilogy is the unofficial nickname of the films made by director Edgar Wright and actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (a nice knowing nod to Krzysztof Kieslowski which we appreciate) Presumably, you've heard of the first two installments, "Shaun Of The Dead" and "Hot Fuzz," and while they are not sequels of any kind, they all star Pegg and Frost, they're penned by Pegg and Wright and they're directed by the "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" filmmaker.

From The Playlist U.K.: The pubs of London are littered with the carcasses of British comedy stars who weren't able to convert their TV success to the big screen. Countless sitcom actors made awkward, unfunny film debuts, and even big names like Ricky Gervais and Steve Coogan have mostly tripped over in the cinema. The principle exceptions in recent years, however, have been the "Spaced" duo of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, who, in reuniting with the director of that show, Edgar Wright, produced two bona-fide comedy classics in "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz."

We've liked the early trailers and have been anticipating this one for a while, but unless you're in the U.K., there is still a bit of a wait until you get to see Greg Mottola's "Paul," so hopefully this clip will tide you over.

Trying to trailer an R-rated film without any cursing or even mildly suggestive material or dialogue is a tough task, but we'll be damned if the marketing team behind "Paul" haven't been trying. A couple of U.K. trailers have already arrived and worryingly focused more on nut shots and bodily function humor. However, a domestic trailer has now dropped for the film, and the tone and tenor feel more natural and the laughs are definitely louder.

As big fans of Greg Mottola's "Superbad" and "Adventureland," and even bigger fans of "Shaun of the Deadb" and "Hot Fuzz," we've been excited about "Paul," which gives Mottola a script written by and starring the stars of the latter two, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, for some time. So why is that the marketing materials are giving us pause?

We got introduced to Mark Zuckerberg in early teasers for "The Social Network" as a punk, genius, prophet, traitor and billionaire, and using that same approach, the new domestic poster for the upcoming geek comedy "Paul" gives a little insight into its titular alien.

The early months of the year are typically fairly barren, cinematically. For the most part, this looks to hold true in 2011, but there are a few big releases that will hopefully prove worthwhile: Kevin Macdonald's "The Eagle," Michel Gondry's "The Green Hornet" and Cary Fukunaga's "Jane Eyre" among them.
