NIGHT WATCH Set to be Released in Feb 06


With all this DAY WATCH talk, why not throw a little NIGHT WATCH into the mix.

Fox Searchlights has let it be known that the release date for the first (of a trilogy) NIGHT WATCH is scheduled for February 17, 2006.

As for how wide the release will be, I'm not to sure.. but with my luck, it wont be wide enough.

Set in contemporary Moscow, NIGHT WATCH (NOCHNOI DOZOR) revolves around the conflict and balance maintained between the forces of light and darkness -- the result of a medieval truce between the opposing sides.

As night falls, the dark forces battle the super-human "Others" of the Night Watch, whose mission is to patrol and protect. But there is constant fear that an ancient prophecy will come true: that a powerful "Other" will rise up, be tempted by one of the sides, and tip the balance plunging the world into a renewed war between the dark and light, the results of which would be catastrophic.

NIGHT WATCH (NOCHNOI DOZOR) is the first installment of a trilogy based on the best-selling sci-fi novels of Sergei Lukyanenko entitled Night Watch, Day Watch and Dusk Watch. The film is the official Russian contender for Best Foreign Language Film for the 2005 Academy Awards.
