'Neighborhood Watch' now 'The Watch' after Trayvon Martin killing
In a statement, the studio says, "As the subject matter of this alien invasion comedy bears no relation whatsoever to the recent tragic events in Florida, the studio altered the title to avoid any accidental or unintended misimpression that it might."
The film features Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade as a group of suburbanites who create a neighborhood watch group. Things go awry when they uncover an alien plot that threatens the world.
The movie opens July 17.
