Hey folks, Harry here with a real live Russian citizen geek with the lowdown on the future of the series, origin of this series and what is said at the beginning of the trailer below:
Seeing that you are so excited about the whole Nightwatch business, I've decided to enlighten you on the whole Nightwach/Daywatch business. The series is based on three books: Nightwatch, Daywatch and Twilightwatch. Each book consists of three different sub-novels (each having its own story, but only the final third reveals the whole devious plot of the heads of the Nightwach and the Daywatch). So in fact there will be nine movies in the series and if all goes well Daywatch and Twilightwatch will be filmed in Hollywood (info from the writer's homepage) So far there are two more Nightwach movies instore. I've heard that all three were filmed back to back (in fact a friend of mine have seen the reels with Nightwatch 2 and 3) and its only a matter of post production before they will be put on screen.
As for the ad for the Daywatch (which is not realy Daywatch, but Nightwach 2), it does consist of the images from the first picture, but thats only because (as the voiceover says) in summer 2005 70 countries and millions of people will see the first movie, while the russians will see the second one. One hell of a franchise :)) So in theory they'll keep showing them in movie theatres (at least in Russia) every summer for the next eight years or so.
That's all for now
