The found-footage genre may be reaching its inevitable endpoint with this September’s End of Watch, a drama about a pair of hard-boiled L.A. cops fighting off a drug cartel. Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña play the cops, and the new red-band trailer makes it clear that the movie is maximizing its R rating, with F-bombs galore and at least one eye-stabbing. “Come on, man, we’re cops!” says Gyllenhaal. “Everybody wants to kill us!”

So this is basically every episode of COPS, except instead of chasing drunks in tank tops, they’re cashing heavily-armed druglords who enjoy filming everything with their high-quality HD camera. Watch the NSFW trailer:
