Universal Pictures releases this science-fiction comedy, about two British comic-book geeks (Simon Pegg and Nick Frost) who encounter a smart-ass alien who wants to escape from the top-secret military facility at Area 51. Taking their new friend for a ride, our hapless heroes are pursued by federal agents and by the father of a young woman whom they accidentally kidnap. Greg Mottola directed, from a script written by Frost and Pegg. Seth Rogan provides the voice of the epynomous alien. Jane Lynch, Sigourney Weaver, Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Blythe Danner, and Jeffrey Tambor fill out the cast.
