The Watch (redband trailer)


And they said it couldn’t be done. Behold the genetically engineered monster that combines the homophobic, sex-terrified, eternal-adolescent grossout “comedy” with the alien-invasion movie. Mad science fiction has done it again!


US/Canada release date: Jul 27 2012 | UK release date: Aug 29 2012

    … But Richard Ayoade >>

    So, a bunch of slacker morons are convinced there’s an alien invasion and everyone who’s even slightly different from them is an alien.  Sounds like a clever send-up of our own egocentric tendency toward Othering…

    And then it turns out they were right all along?  Now you’ve lost me.

  • Meh, I’m not sure I’d call it homophobic or sex-terrified, but it doesn’t look particularly funny either so who cares.

  • Tonio Kruger

    The Joe Dante film The Burbs tried to pull off a similar hat trick several decades ago–professing to satirize suburban xenophobia at the same time it was exploiting it.

    And I must admit that I was surprised to see Richard Ayoade of The IT Team show up here too. Was this really the best script he was offered or just another sign that Hollywood has absolutely no clue what to do with funny foreigners?

    Sounds like a clever send-up of our own egocentric tendency toward Othering…

    …Which was much better done in the old Twilight Zone episode “The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street.”

    * Sigh!*

    The more I see this trailer, the more I want to The Hulk to take these idiots out!  All I can think when it comes on is “Hulk smash!”

    Please let this movie come out soon, and go away even more quickly.
