The Day Watch trailer is up at http://www.foxsearchlight.com/daywatch/ and it looks spectacular. I was a big fan of Night Watch. Saw both the Russian and US versions several times. This is what co-writer/director Timur Bekmambetov told me about the sequel back in 2005: “The second movie is absolutely different. Different genre, different entertainment, the characters are the same but everything is different and I think everyone will be surprised. In the first movie there were no comic scenes or funny moments, but the second movie there are love stories and very funny things. Then, in the end, we’ll have a big battle.”
The US release date is June 1; October 5 in the UK.
