Who's up for a close encounter?

For the past 60 years, a space-traveling smart-ass named Paul has been locked up in a top-secret military base, advising world leaders about his kind. But when he worries he’s outlived his usefulness and the dissection table is drawing uncomfortably close, Paul escapes on the first RV that passes by his compound in Area 51. Fortunately, it contains the two earthlings who are most likely to rescue and harbor an alien on the run.

Paul - Ein Alien auf der Flucht

Paul ist ein Alien und hat die letzten 60 Jahre auf einer streng geheimen Militärbasis der Amerikaner abgehangen. Doch dann bricht er aus dem Lager aus und besteigt das erstbeste Gefährt, das er findet – ein Wohnmobil, in dem die Erdlinge Willy und Clive unterwegs sind. Die beide sind Science-Fiction-Fans auf Pilgerfahrt zur Area 51. Nun haben sie ein Alien am Hals und Bundesagenten im Nacken. Ausserdem ist da noch der fanatische Vater eines jungen Mädchens, das sie versehentlich entführt haben.

France French (Français)

Depuis 60 ans, Paul, un extraterrestre, vit sur terre et collabore avec le gouvernement américain. Il se cache à l'abri des regards dans une base militaire ultra secrète... Paul est à l'origine de tout ce qu’on a pu imaginer sur les extraterrestres, du merchandising aux scénarios de Rencontres du troisième type , E.T. ou encore X Files. Hélas pour lui, maintenant que le gouvernement américain lui a soutiré toutes les informations intéressantes sur la vie extraterrestre, il décide de se débarrasser de lui. Paul réussit alors à s'échapper et tombe nez à nez avec deux adolescents attardés fans de science-fiction qui sillonnent les États-Unis en camping car. Paul les convainc de l'emmener avec eux et de l'aider à quitter la terre. La tâche s’avère d'autant plus difficile pour nos deux "héros du dimanche" qu'ils sont poursuivis par un flic implacable assisté de deux pieds nickelés du FBI...

Italy Italian (Italiano)

Graham Willy e Clive Collings, due nerd inglesi appassionati di fantascienza, partono per gli Stati Uniti alla volta di una convention di fumetti. Attraversando il deserto del New Mexico s'imbattono in Paul, un alieno che per 60 anni è stato tenuto prigioniero di una base militare top secret dalla quale è appena evaso. Paul condurrà i due terrestri in un'avventura on the road nel tentativo di raggiungere l'astronave che lo potrebbe riportare a casa prima di essere bloccato dagli agenti del governo o dal padre infuriato di una giovane che hanno accidentalmente rapito.
