Check out a harrowing, balls-to-the-wall Red Band trailer for writer/director David Ayer’s cop flick “End of Watch”, a film that promises decapitated heads, assault rifles, street homeboy and knives to the eyeball. Hey, what’s a gritty crime film without knives to the eyeballs? Exactly. This trailer is at least ten times more intense than anything the film has shown before, and I wish they had shown it first, it’s that good. The whole thing looks like a live-action “Call of Duty” game, to be perfectly honest with you. Good or bad? That’s up to you.
A powerful story of family, friendship, love, honor and courage, End Of Watch stars Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña as young Los Angeles police officers Taylor and Zavala as they patrol the city’s meanest streets of south central Los Angeles. Giving the story a gripping, first-person immediacy, the action unfolds entirely through footage from the handheld HD cameras of the police officers, gang members, surveillance cameras, and citizens caught in the line of fire to create a riveting portrait of the city’s darkest, most violent corners, the cops who risk their lives there every day, and the price they and their families are forced to pay.
Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Pena, Anna Kendrick, Cody Horn, America Ferrera, Natalie Martinez, Frank Grillo, David Harbour, and Shondrella Avery.
The watch begins September 28, 2012.
