Ben Stiller And Vince Vaughn Stay Vigilant In First Image From Neighborhood Watch

The summer of 2011 was filled with many spectacular action and superhero films, but it's impossible to ignore the impact made by R-rated comedies. From The Hangover Part II to Bridesmaids; Bad Teacher to Horrible Bosses, the entire season was packed with surprisingly successful raunchy comedies that managed to make both critics and audiences laugh. While we'll have to see if summer 2012 will be able to compete in that arena (it will definitely be a challenge) one film leading the charge is the Akiva Schaffer-directed Neighborhood Watch. Based on a script by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the film has one of the better comedic casts assembled in recent years and today we get our first look at what they look like.

Just as they did with the Wrath of the Titans image earlier today, Entertainment Weekly has included a first look at Neighborhood Watch in their new issue. Check out a scan of the image below and see it full size over on The Playlist.

From left to right that's Richard Ayoade, Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, and Jonah Hill. While the last three names are likely familiar to many of you, Ayoade is still a mystery player to many in America, but that should change quite soon. In addition to directing the indie darling Submarine earlier this year, Ayoade is huge in the UK, having starred in television shows like The IT Crowd and Man to Man with Dean Learner. With any luck Neighborhood Watch will be just the platform he needs to become a star here in America as well.

In the film, a group of suburban dads for a neighborhood watch coalition simply so that they can have an opportunity to get away from their wives and families. This plan backfires, however, when they accidentally uncover an alien plot that puts the entire world in danger. The film also stars Billy Crudup, Will Forte, Nicholas Braun, and Rosemarie DeWitt and will arrive in theaters on July 27, 2012.
