If you know the name David Ayer, you’ve probably seen you’re far share of gritty cop movies. He wrote “Training Day,” “Dark Blue,” and “S.W.A.T.” and most recently directed “Street Kings” with Keanu Reeves.
Check out the first trailer below, and learn more about “End of Watch” after the jump.
What you’ll probably notice first about the style of “End of Watch” is that it looks like a found footage film, along the lines of “Paranormal Activity.” The hand-held camera look is just one of the interesting tricks we can see on display in the trailer. There are also times when the POV switches to first person, almost like a video game.
As usual with an Ayer cop movie, Gyllenhaal’s and Peña’s characters get in over their heads. They are regular uniform police, but after a gigantic bust, they keep pushing and look to take down the drug cartel that’s now after them.
“End of Watch” opens in theaters on September 28.
