Trailer for END OF WATCH Starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña

Here is the first trailer for End of Watch, which I was a little skeptical of as it uses the found-footage gimmick.  Saying that, it does seem to work pretty well here; who among us didn’t like watching COPS on TV back in the day?  Writer-director David Ayer (Dark Blue, Training Day) knows a thing or two about cop stories, so we are in good company there.

The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña, End of Watch opens September 28th.

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.
