End of Watch was part of the Comic-Con slate today. Jake Gyllenhaal didn't attend, as he is apparently still filming in Toronto. Director David Ayer and Michael Pena were there, and Jake did a taped intro for three clips from the movie, including this one:
According to Ayer, cops develop a bond stronger than marriage. From Ayer and Pena's remarks and that clip, which is really funny, it seems Michael and Jake have great chemistry. They worked hard to portray realistic partners. Looks like they succeeded.
It's a shame Jake couldn't make it, as Comic-Con is a huge buzz-builder for movies. Plus, we could have gotten new photos. But the movie did seem well-received. And there's news from ET Canada that EoW will play the Toronto Film Festival in September.succeeded.
You can read a recap of the panel on Collider. Screen Crave has a summary of the three clips.
