Dnevnoy Dozor: When night is longer than the day

edited June 2007 in Social Entropy++
Apparently Fox Searchlight released Day Watch in 23 American theaters last week and god damn it I need to find one.
I thought Night Watch was pretty fucking sweet, but from the trailer, Day Watch seems to blow the ever loving shit out of it.
Seriously, has anyone seen this?
Anyone know of any clandestine theaters where it's currently playing?

check out the website for those crazy Russians:

Into The Gloom

    Yeah they kind of did that with Night Watch too, but I ended up seeing it both dubbed and subbed a couple times and its much better subbed, just because Russian is such a dark and gritty sounding language by nature anyway.

    t Seg: Are you fucking serious?! Dude I'll be in Vancouver this weekend! I'm definitely going to have to catch it.

    Yah, do a quick search on whatever site you use to track down theater listings/times. By the weekend a place in seattle will be showing it, but right now it is showing in Vancouver.

    God,

    People get their names
    Switched.
    It confuses me so much
    Somtimes.

    Day Watch
    On Attack of the Show.
    I will not lie
    I thought it was the
    Dumbest thing
    I've ever seen.

    I've seen it. It continues with Part II of Night Watch (the book) and takes parts of Part I of Day Watch (the book), and then goes totally crazy awesome.

    I guess it must have been
    A different trailer.
    Because the one I saw
    Was crazy stupid.


    Or maybe
    It's just that
    You like shitty movies.

    I'll have to watch the
    Movies to give my
    Full opinion about
    Them.
    However
    The trailers that
    I've seen
    Makes me never want to
    See them.

    The trailer says it's "horror" - does that mean startle-with-sudden-noises horror, or creepy-premise horror?

    Sergey Lukyanenko. Wiki says first book was published in 1998, and an English translation of the second book was published in early 2007.

    Not exactly horror.

    The books themselves are not horror at all; rather, very moralistic

    light and dark, but who is really evil? dark, who just wants to take care of themselves; or light, who started huge social experiments to "make the world a better place" like Communism

    very reminiscent of John LeCarre, of the cold war in general, but told in Russia

    Does it have many scenes like in the first trailer with the spot-hole?

    Most of the action in the books isn't put in with the same level of detail of the movies because, really, they are not action books.

    For the movies, they had to make the Dark/Light distinction a little clearer, and elaborate upon the action scenes a little.

    Am not talking about the books. In the movies, are there often scenes featuring something unexpected happening really fast in an attempt to induce startlement? The trailer did so in the beginning, but I don't know if that's common in the movie or just the trailer editor being a dick.
