Neighborhood Watch will be your brocentric comedy to watch for in 2012. Supporting evidence: It stars Jonah Hill, Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller; it’s written by Superbad’s Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg; it’s directed by The Lonely Island’s Akiva Schaffer. What more do you need? This first trailer, which comes to us via the A.V. Club, is kind of sparse, but it does the trick. Because what explains a movie’s ethos more than a bunch of suburbanites riding around to “Still D.R.E.”?
If it wasn’t clear enough, it seems to be about some kind of neighborhood watch, but here’s a wrinkle: They’re apparently teaming up to fight aliens, not just snot-nosed teenagers. (What a world.) British comedian Richard Ayoade is the fourth man of the SUV-based posse, so get ready for his U.S. star push soon after the film drops on July 27. Sounds like kind of a gentrified Attack The Block.
