Trailer Debut: The Watch

The first feature trailer for Akiva Schaffer‘s alien-invasion comedy The Watch has landed online. The pic stars Ben StillerVince VaughnJonah Hill and Richard Ayoade as wannabe vigilantes who patrol their local streets, and unwittingly happen upon an intergalactic plot for world domination.

The picture was originally titled Neighbourhood Watch, but 20th Century Fox changed the title to distance it from the George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin shooting in Florida. The studio similarly pulled the first teaser trailer soon after the controversy began to dominate the media landscape.

Check out the new trailer, but be warned: it’s for adults only. This Red Band clip features the kind of coarse language and sexual references you would expect from a Seth Rogen-Evan Goldberg script.


The Watch hits Australian cinemas September 13, 2012.

Discuss: Will you keep an eye out for this one?
