"The Watch" Movie Trailer, Cast, and Information

When it comes to comedy with social or political themes, there are a few Hollywood male celebrities that I look forward to watch on the big screen. These are Rob Schneider, Will Ferrell, Adam Sandler, and Ben Stiller. Each celebrity makes memorable comedy movies with characters that really made a mark in the history of Hollywood comedy movies. Of the names that I have mentioned, Ben Stiller has an upcoming movie, "The Watch", that will be shown in Philippine movie theaters on September 5th. In this new film, Ben Stiller plays Evan, a neighborhood alien-fighting watcher at night who is set to save the whole neighborhood and the world.

"The Watch" summary/synopsis/plot

In a seemingly serene suburban enclave and safe haven, Evan (Ben Stiller), Bob (Vince Vaughn), Franklin (Jonah Hill), and Jamarcus (Richard Ayoade) have decided to join forces to safeguard their community. In addition to watch the community, they also enjoy some of the perks that come with being a "Watcher" — drinking beer and just being guys.  

But when the guys’ patrol vehicle hits something that leaves behind a trail of green goo and a tentacle of some sort, and they find a strange, bowling ball-like device that emits a concentrated beam of energy, they realize that their little group has stumbled onto something bigger than a prowler on the loose. 

What started out as a simple advocacy by four suburban dads to protect their neighborhood becomes a global concern when they discover that aliens from another planet have started to inhabit the earth right at their own backyard.

"The Watch" Cast and Information

Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn reunite in “The Watch” along with Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade. Ben Stiller plays Evan, a civic-minded man who moves from the big city to the suburbs, and worries that his life will be boring now he’s away from the excitement of the metropolis. Along with him is a fun-loving family guy, Bob played by Vince Vaughn, a tough-talking "wild card" man, Franklin played by Jonah Hill, and the looking-for-love divorcé, Jamarcus played by Richard Ayoade

When they formed this ‘band of brothers’, the guys thought, sure, they might encounter some weird neighborhood stuff – maybe a burglar here, or peeping tom there – but suddenly they realize they’ve facing something extraordinary,” says producer Shawn Levy, the director of such hits as “Night at the Museum” and “Real Steel.” “And 'The Watch' is not just unprepared or unqualified, it’s not remotely equipped to deal with this problem; yet it’s all on them to stop it.

To play the four members of “The Watch,” Levy and director Akiva Schaffer (a creative force on several famed “Saturday Night Live” short films) tapped three comedy icons and a fast-rising talent. “We wanted the best,” says Levy, "and so we went out and got the best – three titans together in the same movie! And then we threw in the ‘grenade’ of ‘what the hell are you going to get with Richard Ayoade?’

Beyond the hilarity lies a story about four guys who were not complete, or their best selves, until they joined forces. As Bob admits to Evan: “You took a ragtag group of misfits and taught us there was something bigger than a few beers and some bro-time. You taught us about community and how important it is.

At its core, “The Watch” is a story with universal appeal, “It’s about four regular guys who might remind you of your brother, dad or husband,” Levy sums up. “Suddenly, they come together to battle something they have absolutely no clue how to deal with.

And when it comes to friendship, marriage, career, family – or protecting the world – it’s always best to watch out for one another.

The Watchopens September 5 in cinemas from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros. Below is the full movie trailer of "The Watch". Enjoy!
