First Solid Trailer for Cop Drama 'End of Watch' with Jake Gyllenhaal
"Watch your six." Open Road has debuted the first official trailer via for David Ayer's End of Watch, a new cop drama about two young police officers who get into deeper shit with drug cartels than they can handle. Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña play Officers Taylor and Zavala, respectively. This is the cop indie we've been hearing about from Ayers (Harsh Times, Street Kings) that uses POV and various cameras, and it looks intense and intriguing, but I'm always weary of Ayer. Sometimes his films can be a bit dry, but at least there seems to be some story. Cast includes Anna Kendrick, America Ferrera and Frank Grillo.
Watch the first official trailer for David Ayer's End of Watch, in high def from Yahoo:
So why is David Ayer (director of Harsh Times, Street Kings; writer of U-571, Training Day, Dark Blue, S.W.A.T.) using different kinds of cameras? "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." End of Watch was filmed in Los Angeles last year, you can find more info on their shoot here. Open Road Films is bringing End of Watch to theaters starting September 21st this fall.
