New international trailer for The Watch features some hilarious alien action

Jun. 20, 2012by: Paul Shirey

The comedic powerhouses of Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, and Jonah Hill, along with Richard Ayoade are patrolling the neighborhood this summer in THE WATCH and today we have a new international trailer to set us straight.  Directed by Akiva Schaffer (HOT ROD), the pic centers on a suburban neighborhood watch group led by Stiller who undertake the mission of stopping an alien invasion.

It's a high-concept idea and looks like a lot of fun, with this new trailer sealing the deal for me.  It looks like they are merging quite a bit of action into this comedy romp and I think that's pretty cool and should make for some great over-the-top goofs. 

You ain't seen nothin' yet:

Here's the official synopsis:

An outrageous comedy in which four everyday suburban guys (played by Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade) come together to form a neighborhood watch group, but only 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 the beat on July 27, 2012.

Extra Tidbit: I'm not familiar with Ayoade's work. Any Schmoe fans out there want to shout out what's worth checking out of his previous work?

That was uninspired and boring! Hey look! Ben Stiller is being Ben Stiller & Vince Vaughan is being Vince Vaughan. Why do we call them actors when they just play themselves over and over?

Thornton Reed!

Yeah you definitely need to check out "Garth Marenghi's Darkplace", it's hilarious and Ayoade is stellar in it.
I gotta say "The Watch" looks very entertaining, might give it a shot when it opens

Ayodade was awesome as an actor in "The IT Crowd" and "Garth Marenghi's Darkplace", but he truly shines as a director and screenwriter. Just go see "Submarine" and you'll know!

Also, this movie looks hilarious. Gotta love the "Avatar" joke :D

You think any major current events might be making all involved in this project a bit nervous?
