Check Out The War-Torn Love Triangle In The Trailer For ‘The Promise’ | Film Trailer


Earlier today, Open Road Films released the first official trailer for upcoming historical drama film, The Promise!



The clip hits us in the gut almost immediately with a dramatic shot of the oppressed Armenians slaving away before the scene is stolen by the drop of a literal bomb and the slow motion leap of a man falling through air.


From there, time turns back to a year earlier, where medical student Michael Boghosian meets Ana, an artist, while living and studying in Constantinople. It becomes clear right away that the pair’s shared Armenian heritage sparks interest, but the attraction is complicated by Chris Meyers, an American photojournalist and Ana’s boyfriend.


But it isn’t long before the romantic rivalry over Ana crumbles with the Ottoman Empire as the nation aligns itself with Germany. The three soon realize they need to work together to survive the persecution of the minorities.


Oscar Isaac headlines The Promise as Michael, Christian Bale will support as Chris and Charlotte Le Bon will break hearts as Ana. The film will also feature Shohreh Aghdashloo, Angela Sarafyan, Jean Reno, James Cromwell, Daniel Gimenez Cacho and Marwan Kenzari.


The Promise, helmed by director, Terry George, and produced by Eric Esrailian, Mike Medavoy and William Horberg, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.


If the promise of an unfamiliar chapter in history and the meticulous details of the set and costumes didn’t spark your interest before, the dramatic footage and soulfully melancholic background music featured in the trailer is sure to.


Be sure to catch the film when it hits theatres at the end of April!
