The Promise: Latest Trailer Drops Online


Film News - The Promise - Latest Trailer Drops OnlineThe latest trailer for the upcoming Terry George film, which looks at the Armenian genocide in World War I, The Promise has been released online.

 

The Promise has us following an Armenian medical student named Michael Boghosian, who travels to study in Constantinople. There, he meets American photojournalist Chris Myers and French-Armenian artist Ana (Charlotte le Bon), only to get swept up in a passionate love triangle. But as Ana and Michael grow closer, the crumbling Ottoman Empire forges an alliance with Germany and begins targeting ethnic minorities, waging genocide against all Armenians in the area.

 

The latest trailer makes it looks like Terry George is aiming for an epic feel in telling the story of not just this love triangle, but about the Armenian genocide itself. George didn’t hold back when he directed about the Rwandan genocide in Hotel Rwanda and feels like he’s doing the same here. The Promise stars Oscar Isaac, Christian Bale, Charlotte le Bon, Jean Reno, James Cromwell, Angela Sarafyan, Shohreh Aghdashloo and Tamer Hassan. 

 

The Promise is scheduled for cinematic release on the 21st April 2017.
