This is looking better and better. Our friends at Collider recently found and snapped a photo of the first official teaser poster in the wild for the summer comedy Neighborhood Watch, from SNL director Akiva Schaffer, that we've teased before with first look photos. While the standard synopsis for this movie doesn't mention it's sci-fi element, the "plot to destroy Earth" the Neighborhood Watch dads (Stiller, Vaughn, Hill) discover is actually an intergalactic one, and they flaunt that front and center on this poster. Best of all, I think that alien already has a goofy look to it and I can't wait to see what it really looks like. Check this out!
Updated with an official version of the teaser poster from their Facebook page. Here it is in full 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) and is actually a sci-fi comedy, as the plot to destroy the world is an intergalactic plot involving these 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 on July 27th this summer, right after TDKR hits. The cast includes Vince Vaughn, Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade. Hope we see the trailer soon.
