We here at Collider are happy to debut a new image from director David Ayer’s (Harsh Times) police thriller End of Watch.  The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña as two Los Angeles beat cops who get in over their heads when they decide to independently take down a drug operation.  I caught some footage from the film at Comic-Con and thought it looked great.  Much of the movie was filmed with handheld cameras, and Ayer’s POV shots put the audience right in the middle of the action. Instead of another cliché-driven “corrupt cops” drama, End of Watch really focuses on the honest, dangerous work of everyday police officers.  Moreover, the chemistry between Gyllenhaal and Peña is a lot of fun (watch a great clip right here).

Hit the jump to check out the new image, in which Gyllenhaal gets fairly intense.  The film also stars Anna Kendrick, America Ferrera, Frank Grillo, and Natalie MartinezEnd of Watch opens on September 21st.

Here’s the synopsis for End of Watch:

From the writer of Training Day, END OF WATCH is a riveting action thriller that puts audiences at the center of the chase like never before.  Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña star as young LA police officers who discover a secret that makes them the target of the country’s most dangerous drug cartel.
