When I did my previews of the Summer block buster movies from the science-fiction and fantasy genres the movie The Watch had slipped under my radar. This movie was originally titled The Neighborhood Watch but the titles was changed after March 27, 2012, when it was reported that 20th Century Fox had the poster and trailer removed from Florida theaters due to the increasing controversy and tension over the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida.
The movie stars Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, Richard Ayoade and Rosemarie DeWitt It was directed by Akiva Schaffer. The Watch is a science fiction comedy about a Neighborhood Watch that happens upon an alien who is threatening the existence of the world. The movie comes out this Friday, July 27, 2012. From the previews I have seen it looks like it will be fun!
