In New Trailer for The Watch, the Guys Battle (and Photograph) an Alien
05.24.12 by Ryan
In March, the teaser trailer for the upcoming comedy The Watch (back when it was called Neighborhood Watch) was a simple affair, showing Jonah Hill, Ben Stiller, Richard Ayoade, and Vince Vaughn driving around their neighborhood in a minivan trying to look like badasses in their matching jackets. The teaser did little to promote the fact that the group would eventually stumble across a possible alien invasion, something that the work-unfriendly red band trailer released earlier this month addressed almost entirely.
Clearly, the alien subplot is a selling point of the movie. The latest, work-friendly trailer for The Watch further explores the alien invasion, even revealing what the aliens look like when Stiller, Hill, and Vaughn fight one in a CostCo and later take pictures with it.
Written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (Superbad, Pineapple Express), The Watch was directed by Akiva Schaffer (Hot Rod). Rosemarie DeWitt (Mad Men) and Will Forte (MacGruber) co-star.
