An international trailer has hit for Akiva Schaffer’s (Hot Rod) new comedy The Watch, which stars Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade. Formerly titled Neighborhood Watch, the film about a rogue neighbourhood watch crew ran into some publicity difficulty following the tragic killing of Trayvon Martin, hence the name change. This new trailer smartly focusses on the alien invasion aspect of the storyline, and I must say it looks a whole lot funnier than the previous trailers suggested. I’m a fan of everyone involved, including co-star Will Forte, but I’m especially happy to see the brilliant Ayoade (The IT Crowd) get some decent exposure here.
The Watch is due July 27, State-side. Watch the international trailer below (via The Playlist).
