After debuting at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, we were hopeful that The Promise would soon score a UK distributor. That has indeed happened, and you can find the trailer below.

Directed by Hotel Rwanda's Terry George, The Promise is a romantic love triangle of sorts, set against the turbulent backdrop of the Armenian genocide as War World I began. Christian Bale plays an American photojournalist who travels to the area with his Armenian girlfriend, played by Charlotte Le Bon.

There, they meet Armenian apothecary Mikael (Oscar Isaac), and naturally sparks fly. Internal conflicts meet external conflicts as the Ottoman Empire turns violently against its own people just as war breaks out.

Despite a capable cast and a tragic historical backstory, The Promise never made it to general release in time for Oscar consideration last year, but depending on how it has turned out, it may yet be in the conversation, depending on whether this early 2017 slot counts against it in the short memories of awards voters. The film will be out in the UK on 28 April.
