Neighborhood Watch Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill, Vince Vaughn and Richard Ayoade

Partly due to the Trayvon Martin case and also because their hands are already full with "Prometheus," which comes out a month before, Fox has been kind of quiet on "Neighborhood Watch." Until now. They've dropped a foul-mouthed and pretty fucking hilarious red band trailer for the movie that suddenly has put this one on our radar. And oh, by the way, it's now called "The Watch."

The premise is pretty simple: Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade (Brit comic and director behind "Submarine") run a neighborhood watch and must fight off an alien invasion. But honestly? If this movie were just these four dudes sitting around talking, we'd watch it and probably piss our pants. The quartet show an easy, raunchy chemistry (the conversation about finding out what the old man is hiding is amazing) and frankly, the alien stuff is the least interesting aspect. We hope the funny stuff continues once the sci-fi plot kicks into play, but if there is anyone who can handle high concept and keep it absurd, it's Lonely Island member, 'SNL' vet, and "Hot Rod" director Akiva Schaffer.

With a script from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, "The Watch" goes on patrol on July 27th. [IGN]

    what is the name of the song at the end of this trailer?

    I didn't expect this film to be rated R. I think There's Something About Mary was Stillers last rated R comedy.

    ...not to mention The Royal Tenenbaums, Tenacious D, or Greenberg...

    Scratch that. I see he made Tropic Thunder and Heartbreak Kid.

    Is this just called "The Watch" now?

  • Doug | May 4, 2012 3:33 PM

    Yeah, I guess it has to do with studio heads who found it hard to market a movie in some areas seeing as how the term neighborhood watch has apparently become synonymous with the recent events in Florida involving Trayvon Martin
