New Title and Red Band Trailer for THE WATCH Starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hill

     May 4, 2012


The comedy previously known as Neighborhood Watch now has a new red band trailer and a new title.  To distance itself from the Trayvon Martin case in Florida, director Akiva Schaffer’s (Hot Rod) sci-fi comedy is now simply titled The Watch.  Nevertheless, this trailer exactly what I was hoping would come out of a Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, and Ben Stiller team-up.  Thankfully, it appears they’re going full-R on this one based on the a high number of f-bombs and dick jokes thrown into this red band clip.  The film stars Vaughn, Hill, Stiller and Richard Ayoade as a group of neighbors who form a local watch group and end up stumbling onto an alien plot to destroy the world.

I’m a huge fan of Hot Rod, and it looks like Schaffer is bringing some of the same oddball humor to this film. The sci-fi aspect is played way up in this trailer, and I especially love how the characters react after stumbling upon an unknown alien weapon.  Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Billy Crudup, Will Forte, Rosemarie DeWitt, and Nicholas Braun. The Watch opens July 27th.

Here’s the 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.

    That is something and a half !!!

  • keir

    That has got to be one of the best comedy trailers I’ve seen in a while. I am excited for this.

  • CL

    Looks pretty terrible. Seems like the film just thinks putting a bunch of cuss words equals a comedy.

    • Voc007

      I agree. This is the lowest form of comedy. The premise for the film is really good, but instead of wit, I sense we’re just going to get a lot of dick jokes…

        I bet you do sense a lot of dick. You’ll probably pull a Paul Reubens in the back of the theater because of all the dick and cum jokes.

    Is this a documentary about Treyvon Martin?

    • Trent_N

      America knew and loved Treyvon Martin, then he was tragically shot down. RIP our American treasure..

      • brandon

        Adam “MCA” Yauch was an American Treasure. I wish America hated cancer as much as they love pulling the race card.

    • Jay McKells
