Nocturnal Animals and End of Watch are two of Jake Gyllenhaal‘s most recent films. Jacob Benjamin Gyllenhaal is an American actor who was born on December 19, 1980. He is the son of filmmaker Stephen Gyllenhaal and author Naomi Foner; his older sister, actress Maggie Gyllenhaal, is also a member of the Gyllenhaal family.
End of Watch is a 2012 American action thriller film directed by David Ayer and written by him. Brian Taylor and Mike Zavala, two Los Angeles Police Department policemen who serve in South Los Angeles, are played by Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pea. The film focuses on their day-to-day work as cops, their interactions with a particular gang, their friendship, and their connections.
Ayer, who had previously written several police procedural films, intended the picture to be more about partner camaraderie and honest police work than about corruption. Gyllenhaal, Pea, and the rest of the actors went through a rigorous training regimen to prepare for their roles as cops. The film was shot in Los Angeles in August 2011 on a $7 million budget.
End of Watch premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 8, 2012, and was released in American theatres on September 21, generating over $57 million. Two Independent Spirit Award nominations were among the awards bestowed upon the film. End of Watch made $41 million in North America and $16.6 million in other markets, for a total of $57.6 million on a $7 million budget.
