‘The Watch’ Trailer: New Footage, Bigger Laughs
‘The Watch‘ should be a movie that’s a slam dunk for summer audiences. It features comedy heavyweights Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hill caught up in a big alien invasion type movie. So why have the trailers all felt underwhelming? Well ‘The Watch’ is about to fix that with a hilarious new trailer. You’re gonna wanna watch this trailer. (Get it?…)
While the other ‘Watch’ trailers were mostly teases but this one finally gets into the real beats of the story (written by Seth Rogen, BTW). Ben Stiller is playing his uptight suburban guy who recruits some neighbors – Jonah Hill playing a kid who couldn’t make the police force, Richard Ayoade as a British import and Vince Vaughn playing, well…Vince Vaughn – to join a crime fighting program. When they stumble upon aliens, they get a little in over their heads.
And that’s all well and good, but this trailer actually sells it. There’s plenty of laughs including an extended sing-along to “You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet” that looks like Stiller and Hill could break out laughing at any second and some great lines from Jonah Hill. (Plus, for all you Will Forte fans, he’s back doing what he does best: wearing a cheesy moustache and screaming.)
‘The Watch’ hits theaters on July 27th and has plenty of time to use this goodwill to attract some more buss. Watch ‘The Watch’ trailer below:
