Four grown men stare you down in this new poster for Neighborhood Watch

Apr. 20, 2012by: Alejandro Stepenberg

The first poster to show up for NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH demonstrated how no man in this hood likes extraterrestrials, and now a second has appeared which demonstrates to us that four very serious men + a retro wash = something that is still pretty cool even if there isn't actually a whole lot going on.

Seems like they've settled for trying to sell this movie on the names alone, which is fine and all but unfortunately also a bit expected as marketing is always the trickiest part a high-concept comedy.  Or a high-concept anything really lest in the advertising you spoil the surprise, though admittedly THE CABIN IN THE WOODS took up the challenge well.

It's a tricky line that often strays out of engaging imagery and into a place where the advertising tells you almost nothing except for who is in the movie - think this poster succesfully walks that line?

Wether this is gonna rock or suck cock, I don't know.

What I do know is that somebody should give Richard Ayoade a shit-load of cash to write and direct another film. If you haven't seen his sublime Submarine, you should right away.

Jonah Hill looks gaunt in this poster.

They might have wanted to ease off on squishing the actors left to right in photoshop. Pretty obvious and it looks completely fucking amateur.

Where do they hire these terrible designers? I'll send my resume.

What a lazy piece of sh%# poster. How hard is it to put the right names above the right actors? Oh, don't tell me Stiller and Vaughn are more widely known so their names get first placement. If that was the case, they should either take another photo or digitally move the actors around. The movie looks funny but this poster is horrible.

It really annoys me when they don't just put the name above the actor.

Moss is my #1 guy

When I first heard Moss would be in this, it rose to one of my most anticipated movies of the year. Like VideoJunkie said, Richard Ayoade has some of the best comedic timing ever. IT Crowd was amazing and hopefully this launches his career in the US sky high.

Moss!

Very excited to see Richard Ayoade in an American picture. The guy has great comedic timing, and should riff well off the rest of the cast. For those unfamiliar with his work go watch The IT Crowd. It's fantastic.
