Scene from 'Neighborhood Watch' now called 'The Watch'

*Fox has announced that a movie previously titled “Neighborhood Watch” starring Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn, will now be called “The Watch.”

The storyline is about suburban neighborhood watch volunteers who discover an extraterrestrial plot.

However, since the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, the studio decided to retitle the movie.

“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 studio said in a statement.

Also, Fox pulled early promotional material due to the ongoing case.

“The Watch” is set for release on July 27.
