Marketing for 20th Century Fox’s upcoming Summer comedy ensemble release, The Watch (formerly known as Neighborhood Watch) started off awkwardly, with a teaser trailer that went out of its way to not reveal the film’s true identity: a sci-fi/alien invasion flick that reads on paper as Men in Black meets The ‘Burbs.
Things only got worse from there, as the Trayvon Martin shooting suddenly made the idea of a laughfest – where a pack of mostly middle-aged, male suburbanites (played by Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade) use excessive force in the name of keeping the neighborhood safe, seem extremely insensitive and ill-timed.

Similarly, series alum Michelle Rodriguez is confirmed to return, while MMA expert Gina Carano appears to also be a lock.
The latest big name, said to be in the running to sign on for the sixth installment in the street racing movie series, is fan-fave Scotsman David Tennant. However, the Doctor Who alum and Fright Night star is far from being “officially in negotiations” right now; rather, Tennant has supposedly chatted casually with director Justin Lin about the idea of ...

We’ve been waiting to see what acclaimed director Alfonso Cuarón (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Children of Men) is going to do with his ambitious new sci-fi project Gravity, and now we have some initial opinions from those who have seen the film to share.
