One of the hottest acquisition titles to world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, “The Promise” boasts a powerful historical backdrop, a top-notch cast headed by Oscar Isaac and Christian Bale, and the return of filmmaker Terry George. The director earned notable acclaim for the Oscar-nominated “Hotel Rwanda” back in 2004, and his first feature since 2011’s “Whole Lotta Sole” once again explores the tragedy and sacrifices made in times of war and genocide. Check the trailer that just debuted today:

The love triangle unfolds as the characters bare witness to the Turk’s shocking crimes.
