This weekend is sure to be a riveting one at the theaters with the premier of the film “The Promise”. Based on true events, Oscar winning director Terry George describes the film by saying:

 

The Promise is a love story set during the days of the Armenian Genocide, one of the greatest and least known catastrophes of the 20th century. This attempt to eradicate an entire nation has almost disappeared from the history books because of collective denial and political expediency. It is a story that I believe demands to be told in cinematic form.

 

And he did just that! Along with the talented cast and crew including Christian Bale (Batman!), Charlotte Le Bon, and Oscar Isaac this enduring love story unfolds during a world war and the collapse of an empire.

 
Watch the trailer below and make sure to #KeepThePromise
