The Promise trailer: new film from Hotel Rwanda director

The Promise stars Oscar Isaac and Christian Bale - and the trailer has landed...


The trailer for The Promise, starring Oscar Isaac, Christian Bale and Charlotte le Bon (The Walk) has debuted online.

The Promise, the latest film from gifted Hotel Rwanda director Terry George, is a love story set in WWI-era Constantinople, that finds brilliant Armenian medical student Michael (Isaac) falling for Ana (le Bon), a sophisticated young woman, amongst the backdrop of the last days of the Ottoman Empire. Ana finds herself in country after following her boyfriend Chris (Bale), an American Associated Press reporter there to cover the war.

WWI, and specifically the Armenian Genocide, which saw the estimated deaths of between 800,000 and 1.5 million Armenians, is one of the most overlooked chapters in history. After shedding light on the underrepresented genocide in Rwanda, director George hopes to use the narrative of a love triangle to shed more light on the senseless loss.

The Promise recently screened at the 2016 Toronto Film Festival. Currently, The Promise does not have a scheduled release date, but we’ll keep you posted on the film’s distribution plans as they become available.
