Our gallery was updated with a great portrait Oscar did with co-stars Christian Bale and Charlotte Le Bon for Variety Studio. Enjoy it!
It seems ET Canada will be livestreaming the red carpet of The Promise, that’s premiering tonight on Toronto International Film Festival
Christian Bale, Oscar Isaac and Montreal’s own Charlotte Le Bon and more stars are expected to hit the red carpet in Toronto, with the livestream beginning at approximately 8:45 p.m. ET on Sunday, September 11. Send us your questions for the cast in the comments section on Facebook.
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 Promise” is set during the final days of the Ottoman Empire during WWI, in which the Turks waged genocide against the Armenian population. Isaac plays an Armenian medical student who arrives in the city and befriends and clashes with an American journalist (Bale) after they fall for the same women (Charlotte Le Bon). The love triangle unfolds as the characters bare witness to the Turk’s shocking crimes.
The Promise” world premieres this Sunday evening at TIFF.
The recently released X-Men Apocalypse is featured on current Entertainment Weekly issue, and you can find digital scans in our gallery.
Oscar is cover of the current Rolling Stone magazine, and the article has the smart title “Oscar Isaac: The Internet’s Boyfriend Becomes a Leading Man”. Check an excerpt of the excellent article by Brian Hiatt:
Oscar Isaac shuts his eyes tight, guitar in hand, and the world goes away. Which is convenient, because the world keeps presenting him with unwelcome facts, here in his 37th year: Turns out that if you’re a dreamily handsome actor who delivers fierce, incandescent, once-in-a-generation performances worthy of Pacino and De Niro, and then takes big roles in Star Wars and X-Men movies, you will become famous, and people will start calling you a movie star. Who knew? “I’m an actor, not a star,” he’ll say, bristling politely, if probed too hard on the subject of his rise. “I don’t really know what you mean when you say ‘star,’ ‘movie star,’ that stuff.”
Isaac never planned for any of this – never planned for much of anything, really – and he’s trying to keep it all out of his head. He’s obsessed with craft, indifferent to celebrity, private by instinct. The money is nice, not that he’s spending much of it, but the only part of success he truly covets is having his pick of roles. He’s bemused by the fervent female fan base he’s acquired, with bloggers calling him “the Internet’s boyfriend.” “The Internet never struck me as being into monogamous relationships,” he says with a small laugh. “It’s very promiscuous, the Internet.” (The Internet almost dumped him last year when an old picture emerged of him wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the cover of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged. “I liked the design,” he says. “I didn’t think wearing the shirt was saying I agreed with all her politics. I’m not a libertarian!”)
Isaac still lives in the same one-bedroom apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, he bought before his career’s recent uptick. He doesn’t own a car (“You know how much a garage is? It’s like paying rent!”). He did at least renovate his Brooklyn place, and purchased homes for his mom and sister. He’ll consider a larger apartment if he has kids, or, as he puts it, “if I duplicate or replicate.”

Hello! First of all, sorry for the lack of updates. Our site was experiencing some technical issues, but everything is sorted now. To start the missing updates, you will find in our gallery now pictures of Oscar attending the World premiere of X-Men earlier this month in London, plus photos from the press conference.
With a theatrical debut that pulled in more than $2.063 billion at the worldwide box office, J.J. Abrams‘ massively successful seventh chapter of the Star Wars saga comes home on Blu-ray and DVD today, April 5. And thanks to the early release of the digital copy, I’ve added the HQ screencaps from the Star Wars: The Force Awakens to the gallery. We’ll be working on the DVD extras later today.
