Open Road has released four new images from the police thriller End of Watch. The movie 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 was unimpressed by the trailer, but I really dug the footage shown at Comic-Con this past Saturday. Both clips we saw had time to breathe even though their content couldn’t have been more different. One clip was just Gyllenhaal and Peña’s characters chatting in their car (showing off their great chemistry), and the other was a cool chase scene done entirely from the perspective of inside their vehicle. End of Watch is now a flick that I’ll definitely be keeping on my radar.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Anna Kendrick, Frank Grillo, and America Ferrera. End of Watch opens September 28th.
Here’s the official synopsis for End of Watch:
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. The film creates 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.
