You may watch below the first official trailer of The Promise, the upcoming period drama movie directed by Terry George based on a script he co-wrote with Robin Swicord and starring Christian Bale, Oscar Isaac, Charlotte Le Bon, James Cromwell and Jean Reno:
From the Director of Hotel Rwanda.
“Michael (Christian Bale), a humble Armenian apothecary, leaves his village to study medicine in cosmopolitan Constantinople. Chris, an American photojournalist who has come to the country to partly cover the geopolitics, is in a relationship with the talented Ana, a Paris-educated, Armenian artist. When Michael meets Ana, their shared heritage sparks an attraction that explodes into a romantic rivalry between the two men. After the Turks join the war on the German side, the Ottoman Empire turns violently against its own ethnic minorities. Despite their conflicts, everyone must find a way to survive — even as monumental events envelope their lives.”
The Ottoman government’s systematic extermination of 1.5 million Armenians was a real genocide… Hard to believe but the current Turkish government is still denying it happened…
The film has yet to get an official release date.
