Watch out for End of Watch

We still have a few months to go before we can rush to the theaters and elbow our way to the best seat but in the meantime – as if we weren’t eager enough – Fandango just released the official End Of Watch poster:

Here’s an updated list of the release dates according to IMDB:

Netherlands 27 September 2012
USA 28 September 2012
Belgium 3 October 2012
Greece 11 October 2012
Denmark 1 November 2012
Argentina 15 November 2012
Australia 29 November 2012
Germany 20 December 2012
Sweden 25 January 2013

I’m still not sure about Netherlands getting the pre-premiere but I guess we’ll find out soon enough.

A good opportunity to remind you what it’s all about, from a lucky early viewer:

If you want to be at the edge of your seat the entire movie you should definitely watch this. I went to a screening a long time ago so the scenes may have changed a bit and maybe made a bit easier on the viewer but the version we saw was absolutely AMAZING movie. The story grips you all along and drags you without giving you a moment to look away from the screen. If you like intense movies like Crash, Stuck or Drive then this is for you.

Everyone applauded after the movie finished at the screening. The story is just so real and so intense that makes your hair stand straight.

The good thing is that from the first second you get into the movie until the very end. Its a story of love and intense action combined that is real not superficial. Its something that could be happening right now in your neighborhood.

and from the official synopsis:

Young Los Angeles police officers Taylor and Zavala 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.

All quiet on the AN ENEMY front. Which can mean two things:

either, like a very kind crew member shared via Twitter when asked about the lack of pics from the set these past three days

security has it bordered off, they can watch but only from a distance and to not interfere with filming.
or it was just a sort of marketing trick to get the fans hooked and then shut everybody out. Whatever the reason, I’m glad that Jake and the rest of the cast, including Sarah Gadon
who plays Anthony’s wife and who nicely shared on Twitter today a picture of her fake baby bump, are finally able to work in peace on what’s to me the most anticipated Jake’s new film.

An all time favorite of mine, just because.

  1. I rarely go to the theatre, but will have to go see Jake when both films are released. I’ve never seen Jake on the big screen before. However, I didn’t “discover” Jake until May of last year.

    • I’m sure Italy will eventually get the film, but a trip abroad sounds like a lovely idea. You have both Netherlands and Belgium close enough, or Germany a little later. Think about it! πŸ™‚

      • In Germany American movies are dubbed into German. Only few movies are shown in their original versions with subtitles. Unless 13thsun understands German, she will a have a tough time understanding the movie. πŸ™‚
        But I’m sure we’ll get a release date for Italy.

  2. Thanks Hagen. I’m sure a release date for Italy will soon be announced. Jake’s films should be watched in their original versions, maybe with subtitles. I wouldn’t want Jake’s voice to be dubbed.

    • Yes, I will watch the original version on Blu-ray. Fortunately Jake is quite easy to understand, unlike for example Heath Ledger in “Brokeback Mountain”. It took some time until I got used to Jake’s original voice which is a bit softer and gentler than his German dubbing voice.

      • Heath seemed to struggle to get the words out and utter them as words instead of mumbles. Both voices reflected their personalities, one conflicted and torn, the other easy and straightforward. In both cases, masterly portrayed.

  3. Jane Moffat is “Eve” and Darryl Dinn is an employee in “An Enemy” ( No idea, who’s Eve or who’s that employee.

      • Yes, that sounds likely. Though I hope the movie shortens the part about the DVD store. I’m not sure I’d like to watch Adam go to the DVD store, rent DVDs and watch movies over and over again. πŸ˜‰

      • There’s definitely a scene with the DVD store (there were tweets from a guy close to the set who mentions a DVD store) but I’m sure we’ll be spared the multiple movie watching πŸ˜‰

  4. Hello! Thank you for the great post as always! I really love to read the reviews of EOW. and I’m wondering whether EOW will be released in my country. Actually Japanese distributors have always delayed in doing them duty. 😦 I want to complain to them about it.
    Anyway I’m hoping to see EOW without waiting so long. πŸ™‚

    • Hello Mayumi!

      Let your voice be heard! I know Japan gets the films eventually, but always so late! I remember for Love and Other Drugs and Source Code you’ve waited more than 6 months, if not more. That’s unacceptable for a fan, go and tell them πŸ™‚
