Neighborhood Watch becomes The Watch and gets a Red Band Trailer


Apparently the Akiva Schaffer directed comedy has had a name change twhich may be to move away from the Trayvon Martin case over in the US. Then again it may just not have been testing well with the public.

Personally I think The Watch is a slightly better title although it does make me think of Terry Pratchett.

There is no Vimes in this one, but it does feature Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, Ben Stiller, Richard Ayoade, Billy Crudup, Will Forte, Rosemarie DeWitt, Nicholas Braun, Will Forte and the mighty Doug Jones.

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.

The Watch is due out on July 27th and you can watch the rather funny red band trailer below.

Nice to see R. Lee Ermey in the film (I am sure it was him) and I love how Jorma Taccone is listed as Casual Wanker #2 over on IMDB.
