This bit of art, on display in the backlot at Universal Studios, first showed up on Twitter a few weeks back. I'm not sure why Universal has decided to put this up on display as part of the backlot studio tour, and not online for everyone to see, but that's Universal for you. Anyway, Collider now has a bigger, cleaner, high res shot of the first promo art for Nick Frost and Simon Pegg's new movie Paul directed by Greg Mottola, that's being shot as we speak. It doesn't show us what the alien looks like but it's a pretty good promo photo and it sets the mood for what's to come. If you don't know what Paul is yet, well, then you're not a rightful geek.This bit of art, on display in the backlot at Universal Studios, first showed up on... more

"Add "Escape From Planet Earth" to Weinstein Co.'s growing list of headaches.
The computer-animated 3-D stereoscopic movie, which was announced in 2006, has been beset with script problems and won't be ready for release until January 2011 at the earliest. A story about aliens plotting to escape from Area 51, the secret Nevada location famous for non-Earthling tourists, "Escape" was previously targeted for a 2010 release.
Though the studio has had some recent critical success with "The Reader," for which Kate Winslet took home an Oscar for best actress, the company's annual output has been minimal. "Escape From Planet Earth" is the latest Weinstein film to be delayed for various reasons.
Other Weinstein Co. films that have had their release dates put off over the last 18 months include "All Good Things," "Youth in Revolt," "The Road," "Shanghai" and "Piranha 3-D."
Last month the studio, headed by brothers Harvey and Bob Weinstein, retained financial consulting firm Miller Buckfire & Co. to restructure its debt and raise funds.
In the case of "Escape From Planet Earth," the problems are creative. Production, which is not expected to resume until August or early fall, was halted because of script issues, several people involved in the production said. The film is being written by Tony Leech and Cory Edwards, the team behind "Hoodwinked!," Weinstein Co.'s '06 hit release that took in $110 million worldwide. Leech is also directing the movie....""Add "Escape From Planet Earth" to Weinstein Co.'s growing list of... more
Scripted by Pegg and Frost (the duo from Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz), the story follows two British nerds, fresh off a trip to Comic Con, who decide to go on a road trip to Area 51. They meet an alien named Paul, voiced by Rogen, who asks them to help him escape from the U.S. Government. On the run from a government agent named Lorenzo Zoil (Jason Bateman), the trio accidentally kidnap a young Christian girl (Kristen Wiig) and pay a visit to an old “crackpot” woman (possibly Weaver?) who not only claims to have witnessed Paul’s crash landing, but even pulled him out of the ship.Scripted by Pegg and Frost (the duo from Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz), the story... more
Seth Rogen has being announced as the latest addition to Simon Pegg and Nick Frost’s sci-fi comedy untitled Paul. Rogen has being to the cast along with Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader and Jane Lynch, which has increased Frost and Pegg fan anticipation levels yet further.
At the moment the movie, in which Pegg and Frost play two British geeks who accompany an alien on a road trip across the States, is like a comedy face-off, pitting our finest against the best that North America has to offer.
Seth Rogen will lend his voice to Paul the alien titular character discovered by Pegg and Frost’s characters Graham and Clive after he escapes from Area 51.

Joe the Plumber, meet Ed the Dairyman.
Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin spoke to a crowd of about 10,000 supporters Sunday in a Roswell airplane hangar, not only making a reference to Joe the Plumber, but alluding several times to "Ed the Dairyman" after seeing someone in the crowd holding a sign identifying himself that way.
She warned voters about Democratic plans to raise taxes "on America's hard-working families and our small businesses and a lot of folks just like Joe the Plumber and Ed the Dairyman out there."
Joe Wurzelbacher, a plumber from Holland, Ohio, became a media sensation last week when Republican presidential candidate John McCain referred to "Joe the Plumber" several times during a debate with Democrat Barack Obama.
Palin challenged the tax plan advocated by Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama, which she warned would expand government and "destroy jobs" by redistributing wealth.
"Barack Obama calls it spreading the wealth. Joe Biden calls higher taxes patriotic," Palin said. "But Joe the Plumber and Ed the Dairyman, I believe they think it sounds more like socialism.
"Friends, now is no time to experiment with socialism," she told the cheering crowd.
Palin, appearing near a big American flag and a large sign that read "Victory in New Mexico," hammered on energy policy, saying New Mexico shares a lot with Alaska when it comes to energy.
She called for drilling in the United States to reduce dependence on foreign oil and said all energy possibilities should be considered, including solar, wind, clean coal and offshore oil and gas drilling.
"Our opponents keep saying, 'No, no, no,' to sound and responsible energy solutions," she said. "Drilling in New Mexico and elsewhere can be an economic engine to provide jobs."
She drew cheers from the crowd when she said, "We'll drill here, we'll drill now."
McCain, she said, would cut business taxes, double child tax deductions for families and cut capital gains taxes.
Palin said McCain wants her to take the lead on helping families with special needs children. She was carrying her son Trig, who has Down syndrome, when she landed in Roswell to cheers from the crowd.
She began her remarks with a reference to her appearance on "Saturday Night Live" hours earlier, saying there was no place she would rather be than live from Roswell on Sunday afternoon.
Palin's visit to Roswell came two days after Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden appeared at a rally at the Mesilla plaza near Las Cruces, also in southern New Mexico. Joe the Plumber, meet Ed the Dairyman. Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah... more
Some of you humans may recall various stories and snippets that ran recently about former astronaut Edgar Mitchell, the sixth man to walk on the Moon, who has been saying for years that aliens in fact do exist. The Discovery Channel had a good chat with him on their blogs recently. Or perhaps you’ve seen the interview with rocket scientist David Adair, who built a fusion containment engine at the age of seventeen and solved math equations with Stephen Hawking.
Basically, a growing number of reputable scientists, pilots and astronauts are saying that the US government has been hiding knowledge of extraterrestrial life for decades. To many, this alleged cover up will come as no surprise. However, the real tragedy is that if indeed there has been a cover up to hide knowledge of beings from other planets, it means that we’ve been missing out on the opportunity to chat over a cup of coffee or knock back a bevy with our interstellar brethren, and to ultimately engage our unearthly visitors in a healthy, earthy debate about society, politics, or perhaps even universal health care.
[the latter of which may coincidentally need to be renamed as pre-existing intergalactic copyrights on the phrase universal health care may prevent its use here on planet earth. We’ll need to check with the intergalactic copyright office and make sure we aren’t infringing on any already-registered, interstellar rights which subsequently may have already levied upon us some hefty planetary penalties]
But back to my point and query: why should the government get to hog all the face time with our so-not-new-by-about-fifty-years intergalactic friends?
I don’t know about you, but I for one would welcome the chance to get together for a friendly visit with beings from distant solar systems we don’t even know about yet; not to bombard them with all the esoteric questions they must get tired of hearing from all the other planets they meet for the first time mind you, but instead invite them over for a barbeque or dinner party, to share photos from our vacations or play a game of scrabble, and to inquisitively ask (politely probe if you will) for advice on how to help humanity, like how to help feed the hungry, improve living conditions, cope with weapons/war, and in general, advice on how we can relieve suffering and help our civilization evolve...

Trevor Paglen has been taking pictures of satellites that officially don't exist, and now his photos are part of his exhibition in which he compares government secrecy of today with the Catholic dogma and secrecy of Galileo's time.
"What would it mean to find these secret moons in orbit around the earth in the same way that Galileo found these moons that shouldn't exist in orbit around Jupiter?" Paglen says.
He also takes pictures of other secret type stuff, including what he calls "torture taxis". Check the link for the full article and tell us what you think!Trevor Paglen has been taking pictures of satellites that officially don't exist,... more
Area 51, the US Air Force's infamous and secretive test site, has been given a new official name: Homey Airport.
The base has been connected with mysterious alien sightings and blocked from unwanted visitors with maximum security, meaning curious conspiracy theorists haven't been allowed near the site or within it's airspace for years. It's even blanked out on Google Earth.
After its existence was denied for years, the US government has been conceding that the Air Force has an "operating location" in recent years. The new name "Homey Airport" appears as the site's official name on the website of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, as well as other respected flight sites.

CIA paparazzo Trevor Paglen is a thorn in Uncle Sam's side. Known for snapping telephoto candids of CIA planes and Area 51, the artist also gathers "patch intel," which he's collected in this provocative book (main title: "I Could Tell You But Then You Would Have To Be Destroyed By Me"). The fruit of several Freedom of Information Act requests, Paglen's book proves that classified black opps concoct esoteric team insignias just like other military divisions. The photo-driven work presents 75 de-classified patches with colorful eagles, skulls, swords, dragons, wizards and even aliens (!). Surveying iconography that was never intended for your eyes is both exhilarating and frustrating. Decoding them is often impossible, which only leads back to the obvious: How else are our tax dollars being secretly spent? I was lucky enough to get an advance copy, so this is a bit of a tease, but the book will be available next week. And unlike grainy, questionable YouTube clips of UFOs, Big Foot and Loch Ness, in this case, seeing guarantees believing.CIA paparazzo Trevor Paglen is a thorn in Uncle Sam's side.
