The teaser trailer for the upcoming comedy Neighborhood Watch was pulled from theatres last month in the wake of the death of Trayvon Martin, a Florida teenager who was shot dead without provocation by a member of the local neighborhood watch. It was the right move, but it also left many people to wonder how Fox could continue to market a movie with that title at all. Just last week they responded by announcing that the movie has been retitled to simply The Watch, and a new red band trailer has been released to support it.
The story revolves around a group of suburban dads who believe that their town has been invaded by aliens, and this time around, we finally get to see some alien goo (although not the aliens themselves). We also get to see a lot of R-rated riffing between Jonah Hill, Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Richard Ayoade. I am pretty much sold based on the cast alone, I just hope this isn’t another summer comedy that’s going to try too hard to be offensive and shocking. As it stands right now, I’m very much looking forward to it. The Watch hits theatres on July 27th; check out the new trailer after the jump and see what you think.
