Back in April of 2011 we got our first look at Jake Gyllenhaal and his freshly shaved head on the set of a new film titled End of Watch. In July of 2011, we learned that Jake and his End of Watch co-star Michael Peña bore witness to actual gang violence on a police ride along they experienced while preparing for their film. In August, they were still filming End of Watch. Today, we get our first look at the first trailer for the film, due out later this year. Wanna see Jakey poo as a hot, gruff cop? Check out the trailer in full below.
Gritty, intense … looks good. I had a feeling that End of Watch would be one of those darker cop films but I really wasn’t sure what the angle would be. As far as I can tell, Jake and Michael don’t appear to be dirty cops … which is a relief because not only do I feel that convention is overdone but I wanna root for Jake in this new film, not hate him. I like what I see. End of Watch opens on September 28 … are you in?
