Universal Pictures brings the long-awaited comic adaptation Cowboys & Aliens, along with a preview of the sci-fi comedy-adventure Paul to Comic-Con 2010.

First on the docket is Universal Pictures’ sci-fi comedy-adventure Paul, with a panel that will include director Greg Mottola (Superbad), who will be joined by cast members Simon Pegg (Hot Fuzz), Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead), Kristen Wiig (Date Night), Bill Hader (Forgetting Sarah Marshall), Jeffrey Tambor (The Hangover), Joe Lo Truglio (Role Models), Seth Rogen (The Green Hornet), and Sigourney Weaver (Baby Mama), who will discuss the movie about two sci-fi geeks whose pilgrimage to Comic-Con ultimately takes them to America’s UFO heartland. While there, they accidentally meet an alien who takes them on an insane road trip that alters their universe forever.

After the Paul preview, Cowboys & Aliens director Jon Favreau (Iron Man series) discusses what’s happening behind the scenes of Universal Pictures and DreamWorks’ long-awaited action-thriller Cowboys & Aliens, which is based on Platinum Studios’ graphic novel. Cowboys & Aliens is currently shooting in New Mexico, and stars Daniel Craig & Harrison Ford, who will take audiences into the Old West, where a lone cowboy leads an uprising against a terror from beyond our world.

The Universal Pictures Cowboys & Aliens and Paul presentation takes place on Saturday, July 24th, from 4:45-5:45 p.m., in Hall H.
