Geek Shirts In Paul Film

The latest issue of the Australian version of film mag Empire has just been released (look for the Tintin cover, which was used by the UK edition previously ) and inside is a 4 page article on the next film from the great British comedy duo of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. They’ve appeared in Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz and as the Thompson twins in December 2011’s Tintin film. Before that however (April, 2011 in fact) is Paul, a film starring the pair as geeks who discover an alien who’s been on earth for decades. That alien is voiced by Seth Rogen and the film is directed by Superbad’s Greg Mottola.

Well, the thing that stood out for me in the article was that the pair, obvious fanboys, are sporting the kinds of shirts you’d see at Comic Con. On the left is Frost with a Project Superpowers shirt from the Dynamite series, while Pegg wears a Daniel Clowes design, which is very good timing as his The Death-Ray tale is being published by Drawn and Quarterly next year.
