Full Red Band trailer for Neighborhood Watch online now

Now simply called The Watch

Neighborhood Watch, or The Watch, as it shall henceforth be known, has released a full trailer online (and it's a Red Band one).

We're not going to complain about that simplification of the title, as it saves us the hassle of worrying about the Neighborhood/Neighbourhood issue for the UK.

The trailer (which earns its Red Band for a slew of naughty words) induces some serious chuckles. If you're didn't originally dig the conceit (bored blokes in a neighbourhood watch scheme stumble upon an alien conspiracy), this footage is likely to win you over.

Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill, Vince Vaughn and Total Film's very own columnist Richard Ayoade star as the overzealous watchmen on E.T. alert.

The dynamics of the group aren't laid out in the trailer, but each of the men has a puerile propensity for potty-mouthed dialogue.

Check out The Watch trailer now:

If you needed any more reason to bump this up your most-anticipated-comedy-of-the-year list, it's directed by Saturday Night Live man Akiva Schaffer, who was behind the underrated gem Hot Rod.

The Watch opens on 29 August 2012.

      I've been waiting for a full trailer for this for quite a while and although it doesn't look like it'll be amazing, I have no doubts that it will at least be a lot of fun. The cast alone makes it worth it for me. I know Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn have been in some shocking films, but they can give a great performance when they want to. I'm also glad to see that Richard Ayoade has been given a role as big as he deserves.

      Hmm, viewing the trailer this good make a decent but nothing midweek dvd movie, i shall watch purely to see Ayoade, hopefully he will be allowed to add some british humour to proceedings, but for me Stiller & Vaughn can be very hit or miss(mostly miss these days).

      I saw Hot Rod last night. A comedy vaccum.

      I also thought this looked funny! I'm sure it will be a very fun film and I can't wait to see Richard Ayoade in it. Ben Stiller also looks like he is back on form, plus Jonah Hill is always very funny!

      im hoping the film is better than this trailer, hoping Richard Ayoade has a bigger role than whats been shown, and always great to see Jonah Hill

      How does this look like a laugh? There was nothing remotely funny in it :/ I just dont find comparing some sticky green stuff to come funny. Though tbh they may have suffered slightly in the joke setup from having to edit a lot of the neighbourhood watch stuff out of the trailer after the shooting in Florida.
