It almost seemed like Fox had forgotten about Akiva Schaffer‘s comedy The Watch (it received the blandest poster of the year thus far), but with about a month to go until the film’s release, it looks like the marketing is beginning to ramp up.  A new international trailer has gone online, and it’s got some good laughs throughout.  The plot centers on a group of neighborhood watch guys (played by Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, and Richard Ayoade) who stumble upon an alien invasion plot.  Stiller and Vaughn seem to have settled into their standard personas (uptight guy and fast-talking guy, respectively), but I like seeing Hill as a little bit psycho, and it looks like British actor Ayoade (The IT Crowd) has a chance to steal the show in his big American debut.

Hit the jump to check out the international trailer.  The film also stars Rosemarie DeWitt, Will Forte, and Billy CrudupThe Watch (formerly titled Neighborhood Watch) opens July 27th.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Watch:

An outrageous comedy in which four everyday suburban guys (played by Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade) come together to form a neighborhood watch group, but only as an excuse to escape their humdrum lives one night a week.  But when they accidentally discover that their town has become overrun with aliens posing as ordinary suburbanites, they have no choice but to save their neighborhood — and the world — from total extermination.

    You know I saw a trailer for this when I saw Prometheus and I was thinking “That looks fairly solid, I might see it” and my girlfriend leans over to me and says “That movie would be so much funnier if it didn’t have the alien stuff in it.” Instantly I knew she was right.

    Wouldn’t this movie just be funny showing a group of guys who took being on the neighborhood watch way too seriously? (maybe not after the whole George Zimmerman thing) But honestly, I feel like the alien aspect is going to ruin this movie. It’ll probably still be solid, but still.

      Your girlfriend has quite the original idea. Zombieland would have been funnier without zombies, Kickass would have been funnier without villains. All movies would be funnier if there was no point! Your girlfriend is a genius!
