Led by Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña, the cop crime drama/thriller debuted to brilliant reviews at TIFF, and continued its festival circuit at the BFI London Film Festival last month – you can read Adam’s review here – and with its release just over a week away, StudioCanal have debuted a new clip for us to enjoy.
“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.”
Anna Kendrick, America Ferrera, Cody Horn, Natalie Martinez, and Frank Grillo complete the cast nicely, with Ayer (Training Day) directing from his own script.
End of Watch is currently still playing in a number of theatres across the US, and will be arriving here in the UK next Friday, 23rd November. I can’t wait. For now, here’s the latest clip to give you a taste of what to expect.
