Keep Your Eye On These 5 'The Watch' Clips

The Watch
20th Century Fox

Director Akiva Schaffer of Lonely Island has assembled a dream team of comic actors and assembled them for a supergroup under the name of "The Watch."

In the quiet suburb of Glenview, Ohio, four buddies — Evan (Ben Stiller), Bob (Vince Vaughn), Franklin (Jonah Hill) and Jamarcus (Richard Ayoade) — form a local neighborhood watch group with the idea of using it as an outlet to score hot chicks and exert their authority. What they didn't bargain for was an all-out alien invasion.

'The Watch' Red Band Outtakes Put the Comedy in Sci-Fi

The Watch
20th Century Fox

"Serenity. Optimism. Attack!"

"The Watch" has had something of a troubled past. Originally titled "Neighborhood Watch," it promptly changed its name upon the aftermath of Sanford, Florida Neighborhood Watch captain George Zimmerman killing Trayvon Martin. The real-life tragedy also made Fox executives re-think the film's marketing approach, which resulted in the film's fantasy element — the alien invasion, an aspect the studio had originally held close to the vest — suddenly emerging front and center.

GALLERY: Famous Earthlings at 'The Watch' Premiere

We sleep soundly with the knowledge that these brave souls are watching over our 'hoods.

Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill, Vince Vaughn and other celebs kept the red carpet safe from alien invasion at the premiere of "The Watch," the movie that happens when Hollywood wants its own "Attack the Block." Luckily, no extraterrestrials caused a ruckus (though that doesn't mean they weren't in attendance, you know).

Ill-Timed Ben Stiller Comedy Renamed 'The Watch'

Fox

As the tragic saga of the Trayvon Martin shooting escalates in the media, the summer event comedy "Neighborhood Watch" continues to feel the cultural ripple effect that has cast the title organization into a super negative light.

After pulling ads and an ill-timed teaser trailer featuring Jonah Hill making a gun hand signal to children, Variety reports that the Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn-led satire has undergone a name change to simply "The Watch." Meanwhile, IGN has dropped a new NSFW red band trailer that makes it as clear as crystal that there's absolutely nothing realistic about the premise. Get More »

Jesse Eisenberg and writer/director Richard Ayoade are teaming up for what is sure to be the most adorable, hyperliterate and neurotic adaptation of a Dostoyevsky work ever, Vulture reports.

Eisenberg, whose next film "30 Minutes or Less" is holding up theaters on August 12, will star in "The Double," one of the few Dostoyevsky works not assigned to English students everywhere ever.

In "The Double," government worker Yakov Petrovich Golyadkin is going a tad batty as he's convinced that his doppelganger is stealing his life, from his job to his name. Plus, he's doing it way better than Golyadkin! His doppelganger is everything Golyadkin isn't, and, frankly, it's making our hero a little loco. Is he imagining it? Or does he really have a Double making him feel like even more like a loser? Get More »

The Strange, Sweet Teen Romance of 'Submarine'

Submarine
Weinstein Co.

The story of a guy or gal trying to get the old v-card punched is nothing we haven't seen before, but "Submarine" is smarter, cooler, and funnier than what 99 percent of teen comedies have to offer.

You won't find any ravaged baked goods or hard-up goobers peeking at girls in the locker room in this delicious import from Wales, just a moody teen who stares out at the sea in Swansea.

Instead, our hero and narrator Oliver Tate (Craig Roberts) is a serious young man who has important questions about life: Who is he? Where does he fit in? Should he smoke a pipe? How can he get Jordana (Yasmin Paige) to be his girlfriend and sleep with him? Is his mom going to leave his dad for a terribly batty ex-boyfriend who has a mullet and runs self-help workshops?
