End of Watch, the recent film starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peņa, is set to return to theaters nationwide this Friday, December 7. The film, which was written and directed by David Ayer, opened at number one at the box office this past September.

The film, which earned the Critics' Choice distinction from the Broadcast Film Critics Association, recently won nominations from the Film Independent Spirit Awards for Best Supporting Actor for Peņa and Best Cinematography for Roman Vasyanov. Roger Ebert recently named End of Watch one of the best films of 2012 writing, "Jake Gyllenhaal's image-transforming work as a very tough cop in David Ayer's 'End of Watch' may help the film win a Best Picture slot, and Michael Peņa is no less effective as his partner in a dangerous Los Angeles police district. They forge a relationship during a series of brilliantly-staged action sequences."

"Audience and critical response to 'End of Watch' has been incredible. We are thrilled about the success of the movie to date and hope that this will be a new opportunity for audiences to discover 'End of Watch' and for the film to be seen again on the big screen for awards consideration," Tom Ortenberg, CEO of Open Road Films.

Producer Sinclair continued, "'End of Watch' has been one of the most rewarding films I have ever worked on. It connects emotionally with audiences in a very special and unique way and, alongside my fellow producers David Ayer, John Lesher and Matt Jackson, and distribution partner Open Road, could not be prouder to have brought this film to the big screen."

End of Watch was produced by Ayer's Crave Films, John Lesher under his Le Grisbi Productions, and Nigel Sinclair and Matt Jackson of Exclusive Media who also financed the film, in association with Emmett/Furla Films. Executive producers are Guy East and Exclusive Media's Tobin Armbrust, Jake Gyllenhaal, Adam Kassan, Chrisann Verges, Randall Emmett and George Furla of Emmett/Furla Films, Stepan Martirosyan and Remington Chase.
