About the Project
A series of mysterious small town murders turns out to be a deadly alien invasion. And this is a comedy? Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade man up and kick some serious alien butt. So you might say it’s more of a buddy-alien-action-science-fiction-comedy. When The Watch landed on television, we produced these fun spots for the world broadcast premiere on FXX.

Did you know?
– While it’s not clear how much of the film is improv and how much is faithful to the original screenplay, director Akiva Schaffer said he filmed a few takes with the written script and then allowed the actors to improvise scenes with their own ideas. Later the footage was mixed and matched in the editorial process.
– Bradley Cooper, Will Ferrell and Chris Tucker were all considered for roles in the movie but ultimately never cast.
