The Watch - Red Band Trailer!
When a circle of friends - Evan (Ben Stiller), Bob (Vince Vaughn), Franklin (Jonah Hill), and Jamarcus (Richard Ayoade - that bloke from The IT Crowd) form a neighbourhood watch group to investigate the suspicious activities that have been going on in their town, they get a lot more than they bargained for.
After forming the foursome to get away from their families and chores, the troop end up defending the Earth after suspecting an alien invasion is happening right under their noses.
Directed by Avika Schaffer, The Watch - previously titled Neighborhood Watch - follows the group from the start of their mission: spying on innocent shoppers.
Evan is forced into the watch by his wife and now wants to bond with the lads, although a lot more bonding time takes place than first expected.
Whilst inspecting the neighbourhood, they find themselves on an old man's land - where he approaches them with a gun, swearing at them and threatening them off his property.
The foursome respond by dressing Franklin up as a girl and sending him back to the land.
But it’s all right. As they say, “The worse case scenario is that he could get f**ked in the ass.”
Should we be feeling sorry for Franklin right now? Probably not, as it’s funny..
However, when they do head back to the land - without a dressed up Franklin, may we add - the group discover a device which can destroy objects like cows and sheds. But is it a threat to the world?
If the film is as half as funny and enjoyable as the trailer, then we can’t wait to see it! However, we do have to wait until 29 August, when the film hits cinemas nationwide!
