As we’ve hit the middle of the summer, the best studio comedy of the year still remains one released quite a few months ago, 21 Jump Street. Looking on the horizon, there doesn’t seem to be many other strong contenders in sight aside from WB’s The Campaign and Akiva Schaffer‘s follow-up to the hilarious Hot Rod, The Watch.
Starring Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill, Richard Ayoade and Vince Vaughn, we’ve got a new international trailer for film which follows a group of four guys from the suburbs who team together to fight an alien invasion. After a few other peeks, this one packs a ton of new footage and is easily the best yet. Aside from some of the other gags – including a Will Forte death scene (don’t worry, he’s not the one dying) similar to something in Tim and Eric’s Billions Dollar Movie, I died at Stiller’s Avatar jab. Take a look below for the film arriving next month.
Four everyday suburban guys come together 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.
The Watch hits theaters on July 27th, 2012.
