With the recent tragic events in Florida surrounding the Trayvon Martin case, 20th Century Fox have their work cut out for them when it comes to one of their upcoming comedies. Previously known as Neighborhood Watch, the film follows Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill, Richard Ayoade and Vince Vaughn as a group of suburban dads that create a patrol group for their area and they must protect Earth from an alien invasion.
Now titled The Watch, the studio wasn’t going to reveal these sci-fi aspects until late in the campaign. But now they’re forced to, as IGN has revealed a brand new red band trailer. I loved Akiva Schaffer‘s absurd Hot Rod and this one seems to be another in a line of crude, raunchy R-rated comedies. Some of the seemingly improvised dialogue works well and it’s great to see Ayoade grace the big screen, after his excellent work over in the UK, especially last year’s overlooked Submarine. Check out the trailer below.
The Watch hits theaters July 27th, 2012.
