Today we have a trailer for the "End of Watch" crime thriller, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Pena, Anna Kendrick, Frank Gillo, and America Ferrera. Check it out below.
Plot: The story revolves around young Los Angeles police officers Taylor (Gyllenhaal) and Zavala (Pena) as they patrol the city's meanest streets of south central Los Angeles. 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 most dangerous corners, the cops who risk their lives there every day, and the price they and their families are forced to pay.
The new movie is written and directed by David Ayer, the man who wrote "Training Day" and directed both "Harsh Times" and "Street Kings." It is set to hit theaters on September 28th.
A toss between TRAINING DAY & THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, huh? IDK, it's a hard sell, but looks like it ain't skimping out on the action.
Ayer's material is good...not Mann's HEAT good, but good all the same. Always liked how Ayers puts a face/ family to the law. Anybody seen STREET KINGS: MOTOR CITY with Ray Liotta? Wondering if I should rent it...
Also noticing how Hollywood is barely tapping on the new cartel violence crossing the border. Doubt it'll as brutal as real life with whole families shot execution style, decapitations or dismemberments. The truth is sometimes real life is scarier than any horror movie. I tell you, in Mexico, not even celebrities or musicians are safe.
Looks like Ayers is bringing the headlines to Hollywood making it more gritty & edgy.
