A second trailer for director Akiva Schaffer’s new comedy, The Watch, has made its way online thanks to TeamCoco. We have the trailer right here for you, and it would appear the new version is a much more family friendly affair to the sweary red band trailer which can be viewed here.
I am still a little on the fence with this one: the first red band trailer seemed to rely on lots and lots of swearing for its laughs, and to be fair I thought the talky bits were the funniest. The new trailer doesn’t have the shock factor of the language to fall back on, and instead the comedy simply has to work. Some of it does, and some of it really doesn’t, however the final scene showing Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller shooting a dead alien is rather amusing. Did I mention you get a glimpse of the alien invaders here? Well, you do, and I don’t really know what to make of them, a bit rubbish really? See what you think, the trailer is at the bottom of this post.
The Watch is directed by Akiva Schaffer (Hot Rod) and has been written by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Jared Stern. Starring in the film are Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade.
Suburban dads who form a neighborhood watch group as a way to get out of their day-to-day family routines find themselves defending the Earth from an alien invasion.
