WhenThe Watchhits theaters in July, 20th Century Fox is banking on stars Jonah Hill and Ben Stiller to bring in the viewers. But the movie, about a pack of subdivision-patrolling buddies who stumble on an alien invasion, took a dark turn in March thanks to some unforeseen circumstances.
The first trailer—released at the height of outrage over the shooting of teenager Trayvon Martin by a neighborhood-watch captain—showed Jonah Hill pretending to shoot at a child from a car window. The macabre coincidence got the trailer pulled (and the film’s title changed from Neighborhood Watch), but The Watchisn’t the first movie to suffer from terrible timing. Here are some of the most cringe-worthy examples.
