'Neighborhood Watch' Pulls Trailer After Teen's Death

MELISSA BLOCK, HOST:

Sometimes, Hollywood and the real world collide in unhappy ways. That's what's happening to Fox Pictures. They're releasing a comedy this summer that stars Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hill. The title, "Neighborhood Watch."

BLOCK: Well, Fox has pulled the film's teaser poster and trailer after the Trayvon Martin shooting case. Martin is the Florida teenager shot and killed last month by a member of a neighborhood watch group.

Fox Pictures issued a statement saying they are sensitive to the case, but the studio says "Neighborhood Watch" is a sci-fi comedy and they have no plans to push back the July release.
