Check out five new images from David Ayer’s gritty cop drama “End of Watch”, a film that is apparently kinda Found Footage-ish, but pieced together by someone ala “Chronicle”. Hard to tell from just the trailers, but it does look intense. I believe Gyllenhaal’s character moonlights as a film student at some college when he’s not chasing bad guys as a uniform cop, so that sort of explains the presence of cameras everywhere when he’s at work. Just go with it, I guess.
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, Shondrella Avery, and starting its watch September 28, 2012.
