Fox Searchlight Acquires Entire ‘Watch’ Trilogy

There has been some confusion lately in regards to the Russian vampire trilogy, which features Night Watch and the upcoming Day Watch (which just hit Russian cinemas). Fox Searchlight will be releasing Night Watch domestically on February 17th, while no official word has been released about its predecessors. Today we were informed that Fox Searchlight has acquired the rights to ALL three of Timur Bekmambetov’s films and that they plan on releasing the second of three films later this year. More details soon. Night Watch focuses on the titular band of superhuman “Others” devoted to protecting the world from dark forces, and an ancient prophecy of a violent war between the two sides that threatens to come true in modern-day Moscow.
