Starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, and Richard Ayoade in the leads, The Watch looks set to be one of the funniest comedies of the summer.
Akiva Schaffer (SNL regular, Hot Rod) is behind the camera, directing from a script co-written by the ever-brilliant team of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg – essentially, there’s no way this won’t be excellent.
We’ve seen a few great things from the film already, most recently with a new red-band trailer earlier this month announcing the change in title, and now a new green band trailer has made its way online ahead of its summer bow.
“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.”
Joining the great quartet in the leads will be a fine supporting cast, including Rosemarie DeWitt, Billy Crudup, Will Forte, and Doug Jones, because there wasn’t already enough to look forward to in this film.
The Watch – previously titled Neighborhood Watch – will be released in the US on 27th July, before coming to us a little later with a UK release set for 29th August (with a screening at the Film4 Summer Screen before that). Here’s the great new trailer for your viewing pleasure. This is going to be fun.
