Day Watch: Extended Edition hits UK DVD on January 28th
10th Jan 08
Night Watch was easily one of our favourite films of the past few years, so it was great to discover that the sequel, Day Watch (relased on DVD on January 28th) was every bit as good, with wilder stunts, bolder SFX and a plot that actually wrapped everything up rather nicely.
From visionary director Timur Bekmambetov (Night Watch) comes a modern sci-fi thriller which sees the forces of Light clash with The Dark in an epic battle to save existence. A dazzling mix of visual effects and amazing action sequences, Day Watch is released on DVD on 28 Jan 2008 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment (£19.99) as a special extended edition.
Set in contemporary Moscow, Day Watch revolves around the conflict and balance maintained between the forces of Light and Dark – the result of a medieval truce between the opposing sides.
Day Watch agent Anton (Konstantin Khabensky) is attempting to find and save his son from the forces of Darkness. However, when Dark Others start mysteriously being killed, Anton is framed for their murders. While trying to escape those looking for his blood, he comes into possession of a device that can restore life to Moscow, a city which comes dangerously close to being destroyed by an apocalyptic event.
Day Watch is based on the best-selling novels of Segei Lukyanenko, and is the highest-grossing ever film in Russian history. A must-see for all sci-fi fans, the DVD includes a ‘making of’ featurette as well as the original Russian trailer.
Day Watch will also be released on 28 January as a double-pack DVD along with the prequel Night Watch (RRP: £24.99).
Special features include;
- The Making Of Day Watch (27 mins 5 secs)
- Russian trailer
