Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena walked the red carpet Monday night (September 17) in Los Angeles for the premiere of their new police drama, "End of Watch." Set in South Central Los Angeles, the film has generated a buzz ahead of its opening, for its realistic, gritty and honorable story about those who job it is to serve and protect. "End of Watch," is a powerful story of family, friendship, love, honor and courage starring Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael PeÃ±a as young Los Angeles police officers Taylor and Zavala as they patrol the city's hardest streets. Giving the story a gripping, first-person immediacy, the action unfolds through footage from the handheld HD cameras of the police officers, gang members and surveillance cameras. SOUNDBITE Jake Gyllenhaal saying (English): "But most of all, for us, it was about making a movie that was as authentic as possible. We had no desire to do it half way. We spent five months on the street with police officers, three times a week 4 pm to 4 am, fight training, tactical training with SWAT, the guy who trains SWAT. We had every intention to make it as authentic as possible." The movie also stars Anna Kendrick, America Ferrera and Natalie Martinez. "End of Watch," which is generating an Oscar buzz on several fronts, opens in the U.S. on September 21.
