Open Road has released a red band trailer for End of Watch. Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena star as two Los Angeles beat cops who get in over their heads when they decide to independently take down a drug operation. At the very least, End of Watch will look way different than your typical cop drama. Writer/director David Ayers (Street Kings) employs some found footage angles, but isn’t chained to the format, which makes for a unique, ambitious aesthetic. And it’s hard to go wrong with Gyllenhaal and Pena as your leads, though this trailer is sadly light on affable co-star Anna Kendrick compared to the green band trailer. Natalie Martinez, Frank Grillo, America Ferrera, and David Harbour also star.
End of Watch opens on September 21. Watch the red band trailer after the jump.
A powerful story of family, friendship, love, honor and courage, End Of Watch stars Academy Award(R) nominee Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena 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 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.
