The Watch are Costco manager Evan, father of a teenage daughter Bob, police reject Franklin and Jamarcus who seeks the love of a beautiful woman. Evan formed the Watch after his wife Abby forced him to move to the suburbs of Glenview, Ohio in an attempt to escape the mundaneness of his daily family life. The others, with same mindset, soon followed despite the persistent mockery from local kids and police officers that came along with it. Once they obtain their team jackets that truly scream don't-mess-with-us with their tiger/ wings/ fire emblems 'All on the same logo!', they are ready to sniff out the covert aliens of the town. What they weren't betting on was actually finding anything so when their vehicle collides with something in the road, coming across a splatter of your average mysterious green slime came as a bit of a surprise. They discover a mystifying ball of some sort that they eventually recognise as a deadly weapon after obliterating a cow with a beam of energy. The Watch realise that they must be the ones to defend their planet from this extra-terrestrial threat.
Directed by the Emmy winning Akiva Schaffer ('Saturday Night Live') and written by Jared Stern ('Mr. Popper's Penguins'), Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (co-writers of 'Superbad' and 'The Green Hornet'), The Watch is a truly side-splitting sci-fi comedy with a star-studded cast of hilarity. It's set to hit UK cinemas this summer on August 24th 2012.
