Here’s 20th Century Fox‘s red-band trailer for the retitled alien invasion comedy The Watch. Fox abandoned its original marketing scheme for the formerly titled Neighborhood Watch to avoid any unintended association with the George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin tragedy in Florida. The R-rated comedy concerns a group of suburban men who form a neighborhood watch group and discover an alien plot to destroy the earth. It stars Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade. It was directed by Akiva Schaffer and written by Jared Stern and Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg. Shawn Levy produced. It opens July 27.
