I have not really been paying all that much attention to The Watch. I had heard that it was a neighborhood watch comedy starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hill, and I thought it could be funny, but it didn’t really excite me.
Anyways, I just watched the new trailer that debuted on Conan last night and it is actually a sci fi comedy about the neighborhood watch guys fighting off an alien invasion. It’s like The Burbs, but with aliens instead of NAZIS. That could be fun.
The films stars Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, Richard Ayoade, Rosemarie DeWitt, Will Forte and Billy Crudup, and will hit theaters on July 27.
The Watch is about a suburban “neighborhood watch” group that serves as a front for dads to get some male-bonding time away from their families. The group finds itself in over its head when it uncovers a plot to destroy the world.
