First Trailer: Bale, Isaac In “The Promise”

Filmmaker Terry George (“Hotel Rwanda”) is back with his first film in five years and one of the hottest titles to have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this Sunday – “The Promise”.

Oscar Isaac and Christian Bale star in the story which is set during the final days of the Ottoman Empire in World War I and deals with a love triangle unfolding against the backdrop of an infamous atrocity.

As the Turks waged genocide against the Armenian population, an Armenian medical student (Isaac) arrives in the city and befriends and clashes with an American journalist (Bale) after they fall for the same women (Charlotte Le Bon).

Ahead of that premiere, the film’s first trailer has been released and you can check it out below:
