The Watch PosterThe Watch
Directed by Akiva Schaffer
Written by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg
Starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, Richard Ayoade, Rosemarie DeWitt
20th Century Fox
Rated R | 98 Minutes
Release Date: July 27, 2012

Written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg and directed by Akiva Schaffer (Hot Rod), The Watch is a quasi-comedic, exceedingly raunchy remix of Ghostbusters, Men in Black, and Joe Cornish’s Attack the Block.

In the small town of Glenview, Ohio, CostCo Manager Evan Trautwig (Ben Stiller) forms a neighborhood watch after a co-worker is violently murdered. Wearing a “No More Murders” t-shirt, Trautwig recruits Bob Finnerty (Vince Vaughn), an over-protective father who uses the watch as an excuse to spy on his teenage daughter’s dating life.

Joining them are Franklin (Jonah Hill), a high school dropout with emotional issues who signs up after being rejected by the police department, and Jamarcus (Richard Ayoade), an awkward, sex-crazed young man looking to live out an Asian housewife fantasy.

The neighborhood watch patrols the suburbs of Ohio and keeps the streets safe from rambunctious skateboarding teenagers while attempting to crack the case of the CostCo killer. As you’ve no doubt seen (ad nauseam) from the trailers, the culprit is a nasty extraterrestrial with a knack for skinning its victims (yes, like the Predator). Now, with their powers combined, the watch must stop this otherworldly foe before it tears the suburbs limb-from-limb.

The Watch

Fox has released a toned-down trailer for The Watch. Akiva Schaffer’s new sci-fi comedy, formerly known as Neighborhood Watch, stars Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, Ben Stiller, and Richard Ayoade as a group of local neighborhood watchmen who stumble across an alien plot to destroy the world. Although the trailer tones it down, it is definitely better than the red-band trailer that was released earlier this year.

You can check out the new trailer below.

We also get a better look at the aliens the neighborhood watch group will be facing in the movie. Vaughn debuted the new trailer on Conan last week.

The Watch

20th Century Fox’s upcoming sci-fi comedy Neighborhood Watch hit a huge marketing roadblock following the killing of Florida youth Trayvon Martin at the hands of George Zimmerman, a member of a neighborhood watch whose motives for shooting Martin remain under close scrutiny. The Martin killing took place not long after the first trailer for Neighborhood Watch had been released, depicting the movie’s heroes driving around cocking their fingers like guns at local kids wearing hooded sweatshirts.

Not wanting to have their harmless yet profane genre-bending summer offering associated with the Martin killing, the studio decided to change the name of the movie and this weekend has released the first full trailer for the newly-titled The Watch. You can watch it here below.
