Time to meet your local Neighborhood Watch fathers. Another first look reveal in the recent Entertainment Weekly via Collider included a photo from Akiva Schaffer's summer 2012 comedy Neighborhood Watch. Thanks to an update on IMDb, we can now see two first look photos in high res and they're a great intro to the four man team of suburban dads starring in this (from L to R): Richard Ayoade (of "The IT Crowd", Submarine), Ben Stiller (Little Fockers, Tower Heist), Vince Vaughn (Couples Retreat, The Dilemma) and Jonah Hill (The Sitter, 21 Jump Street, Moneyball). See them and the rad embroidered jackets below.
Neighborhood Watch, directed by SNL's Akiva Schaffer (Hot Rod), is about a group of suburban dads who form a neighborhood watch group to get time away from their families, only to discover a plot to destroy Earth. The screenplay was written by Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg (Superbad, The Green Hornet) but is actually a sci-fi comedy, as the plot to destroy the world is an intergalactic plot involving some aliens or something. It also stars Billy Crudup, Will Forte, Nicholas Braun, Rosemarie DeWitt and Joe Nunez. 20th Century Fox is releasing Neighborhood Watch in theaters July 27th, 2012 next summer, right after TDKR.
