End of Watch Trailer: Officer Jake Gyllenhaal, Reporting for Duty

Is End of Watch basically a found-footage film starring Jake Gyllenhaal? Not quite, though much of this cop drama seems to be shot via in-movie sources — a camcorder, a phone, a camera installed in the cop cruiser Gyllenhaal shares with fellow officer Michael Pena — and the rest of it is filmed from such aggressively unusual points of view that it seems to be director David Ayer's signal that this isn't your usual cop movie. Let's hope not ... otherwise that scene where Pena talks about his new child marks him as dead meat.
