If you were wondering, Yes, “The Watch” (formerly “Neighborhood Watch”) is a sci-fi action/comedy. With, you know, aliens and such. Or at least, I’m assuming the film really is about an alien invasion since there are giant alien ray-shooting silver balls and lizard looking alien creatures flying around tackling humans in the latest trailer for “The Watch”. It actually looks pretty funny, which is very surprising. Usually Ben Stiller movies barely make me crack a smile, especially the trailers.
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.
Starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Rosemarie DeWitt, Jonah Hill, Nicholas Braun, Richard Ayoade, Will Forte, Doug Jones, Billy Crudup, and directed by Akiva Schaffer.
The watch is on duty July 27, 2012.
