This week has already brought a new international trailer for the upcoming comedy The Watch (formerly Neighborhood Watch), and now the first preview clip is also online via Yahoo!. The Watch follows four guys (Jonah Hill, Ben Stiller, Richard Ayoade, Vince Vaughn) who start a Neighborhood Watch group to help protect their suburban community and end up discovering an aline plot to take over the world.
In this first preview clip, the guys are on a nighttime stakeout in front of a CostCo and quickly learn that one of the biggest issues of a stakeout is having to use the bathroom. No surprise that it's Vaughn's character with the urge and, luckily, a soda can. watch the clip >> Posted 06.22.12 by Ryan
With each consecutive trailer, more is being revealed about what kind of movie the upcoming The Watch (formerly Neighborhood Watch) is hoping to be. The teaser trailer released in March seemed to set up a comedy about suburban dads playing tough in their Neighborhood watch group, while the subsequent red band and green band trailers revealed that the four guys (Jonah Hill, Ben Stiller, Richard Ayoade, Vince Vaughn) would also encounter a potential alien invasion.
The latest trailer is easily the funniest trailer yet, showing Evan (Stiller) bringing the group together. It also offers more looks at the other members of the group (surprise, Vaughn's character, Bob, is the obnoxiously enthusiastic one). Once the group runs over an alien with Stiller's minivan, the unlikely saviors of the planet have to find a way to stop the invasion. That's when the laughs really begin. watch the trailer and check out the new poster >> Posted 06.21.12 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. watch the trailer >> Posted 05.24.12 by Ryan
20th Century Fox dropped a new red-band trailer for the Ben Stiller comedy Neighborhood Watch but also announced it's renaming the movie to simply The Watch (the change is undoubtedly related to the controversial Trayvon Martin case).
Here's the official synopsis for The Watch:
Four everyday suburban guys 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. watch the red-band trailer >> Posted 05.04.12 by Chris
