[Trailer] – The Watch

4 May

Fox has changed the title for its upcoming summer comedy/sci-fi match-up. To distance itself from the Trayvon Martin case, the film formerly known as Neighborhood Watch will now be simply named The Watch. And to get people to know that’s the new name they’ve released a pretty hilarious red-band trailer for it which you can watch after the cut.

The film focusses on four friends who run a neighborhood watch only so that they can escape their routine lives one night a week. But then suddenly they find out that their neighborhood has been invaded by aliens posing as regular humans, and they must save it.

Simple enough premise, but it’s the cast that’s really making this trailer work for me. The chemistry between this foursome looks to be truly awesome, and they’re just going all-in on the raunchy jokes and hopefully once the sci-fi element kicks in they can really balance it all out. But yeah, this one wasn’t really one I was eager to watch, and now I honestly can’t wait.

Directed by Akiva Schaffer; written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, based on a story by Jared Stern; starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, Richard Ayoade, Rosemarie DeWitt, Will Forte, Billy Crudup and Doug Jones. The Watch opens July 27.
