A dazzling mix of state-of-the-art visual effects, amazing action sequences, and nail-biting horror set in contemporary Moscow, Day Watch revolves around the conflict and balance maintained between the forces of light and darkness -- the result of a medieval truce between the opposing sides. This ancient war between the forces of Light and Darkness is reaching a tragic outcome. Each side has gained a powerful Great Other, who are headed for a clash, and Anton Gorodetsky is once again caught up in the midst of things. On one side is Anton's son, Yegor, who has joined the ranks of the Dark Others, while Anton's love interest Svetlana is the hope of the Light. But that's just the beginning of his troubles: Anton is on the run after having been accused of murder. Things are getting worse, and only the ancient Chalk of Fate can save the day. The problem is the magical Chalk has been lost hundreds of years ago...

Featuring the cinematic vision of cutting-edge Director/Writer Timur Bekmambetov, Day Watch is the next installment based on the best-selling sci-fi novels of Sergei Lukyanenko. When the previous installment, Night Watch, was released in its native Russia in July 2004, it became an instant smash hit breaking all film gross records in post-Soviet history. []

Day Watch is fast and furious and larded with bizarre laughs, and given its ending, we really can't wait to see what happens in Dusk Watch, the third installment.
