After being checked in on the new Samsung Galaxy SIII phones guests sipped on Red Bull and cocktails while dining on hors d'oeuvres. The screening brought out "End of Watch" star Jake Gyllenhaal along with hosts Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica and Jerry Seinfeld, Ingrid Sischy and Sandra Brant. Other guests who attended the screening include Chris Martin, Bob Balaban, Harry Brant, Peter Brant Jr, Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, Katie Lee, Max Osterweis, Beth Ostrosky Stern, Duncan Sheik, Molly Sims, Rufus Wainwright and Bruce Weber.

After the screening, guests enjoyed dessert and were gifted with a certificate for a Samsung Galaxy SIII phone and their new white glove service.

Producer John Lesher said while filming the movie which was shot last summer in some of the roughest parts of LA, they grew to love the area and called it home by the end of filming. They received lots of love from neighborhood where it was shot. While developing the script a year a and a half ago they met Gyllenhaal and since that he has been a brother on film.

Gyllenhaal who is also the executive producer on the movie is extremely proud of how it turned out. One of the biggests aspects of the movie is the friendship between him and co-star Michael Peña. Gyllenhaal stated, "The heart of the movie is relationships and the friendship forged between me and Michael Peña over the period of time we spent our lives together is very meaningful to me". The relationship betweeen Gyllenhaal and Peña is extremely moving and shows the bond police officers have with their partners.

"End of Watch" is a powerful story of family, friendship, love, honor and courage, which stars Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña as young Los Angeles police officers Taylor and Zavala as they patrol the city's meanest streets of south central Los Angeles. Giving the story a gripping, first-person immediacy, the action unfolds entirely through footage from the handheld HD cameras of the police officers, gang members, surveillance cameras, and citizens caught in the line of fire to create a riveting portrait of the city's most dangerous corners, the cops who risk their lives there every day, and the price they and their families are forced to pay.

"End of Watch" is in theaters September 21st, 2012.
