Twitch Film just got a nice, juicy scoop from a Russian reader concerning Day Watch, the sequel to the massive Russian hit Night Watch (review), which Fox Searchlight is bringing to U.S. shores this fall.
Essentially this is a spoiler-filled report, and if you’ve not seen Night Watch yet it won’t make a lot of sense to you. Apparently the film is on a massive scale, much larger than Night, so a lot more is going to happen.
Also coming out of the report is news that Fox Searchlight has convinced the powers behind the film not to make the planned third movie, Dusk Watch (they’re all based on Russian novels of the same names). That's not a good thing, and it meant a lot of new shooting had to be done on Day Watch in order to wrap up the storyline.
Check out the full report here (lots o’ spoilers, we warned you) and the bigass trailer for the sequel here. (right-click and save as)
