- I’ve witnessed the history.
- How wonderful it must be, to go back to the comfort of your American home and write about it.

Watch below the official trailer for Terry George’s The Promise, led by Oscar Isaac, Christian Bale, Charlotte Le Bon, and set to debut at TIFF this Sunday.

A humble Armenian apothecary, Michael (Isaac), leaves his village in southern Anatolia to study medicine in the capital. Michael has betrothed himself to a village girl in order to bankroll his studies with her dowry. His mother (played by Shohreh Aghdashloo) warns him not to marry for money, but Michael feels confident that, with time, he and his wife-to-be will come to love each other.

But that is before Michael meets Ana (Le Bon). Graceful, Paris-educated, and talented at both drawing and dance, Ana seems the girl of Michael’s dreams. But Michael is determined to keep his promise. What’s more, Ana is already in a relationship with Chris (Bale), a worldly American photo-journalist. These three souls are swept up in a drama greater than any of them could have imagined when the Ottoman Empire joins the Central Powers and widespread violence begins.

The Promise is a new movie about the Armenian Genocide starring Oscar Isaac, Charlotte Le Bon, and Christian Bale. It just premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, and is already being attacked by Genocide deniers. Turkish nationalists have started a campaign to censor this movie by going on IMDB and rating it as a 1 out of 10. It currently has a 3.4 out of 10 with over 9,000 ratings, far more people then attended the TIFF. Please help give this movie the visibility it deserves by rating it as a 10 on IMDB here http://m.imdb.com/title/tt4776998/ and writing a letter to press@imdb.com.

According to TheWrap, Christian Bale and Oscar Isaac will co-star in Terry George’s The Promise, an epic love story set during the last days of the Ottoman Empire which will follow a love triangle between Michael, a brilliant medical student, the beautiful and sophisticated Ana, and Chris — a renowned American journalist based in Paris.

Bale is set to play Chris, an AP reporter in love with both a woman and the danger of being in a combat zone amidst a world that is falling apart, while Isaac will play be Michael, a medical student in love with the same woman but conflicted by old-world traditions and his heart.

Side question for those that may know: Finding credit for the cover colorist is often difficult. In making these posts I want to include their names and not just the penciler and inker. Is it ever ok to assume the person credited for interior colors also did the cover?
