Ike Barinholtz (The Mindy Project, Blockers) fails to keep his Thanksgiving dinner from turning into a heated political discussion as he verbally fights family members in the first official teaser trailer for "The Oath."

From the producers of "Get Out" and "BlacKkKlansman," the Holiday-set comedy marks Barinholtz's feature film directorial debut, in which he stars alongside "Girls Trip" comedienne Tiffany Haddish as a married couple who vow to not to talk politics during their three-day Thanksgiving vacation with family members -- only to have those plans blow up in their faces after the White House suddenly issued out a controversial pledge that has just about everyone talking.

Written by Barinholtz, "The Oath" co-stars Nora Dunn and Chris Ellis as Barinholtz's parents with Jon Barinholtz and Meredith Hagner as, well, Barinholtz's brother and sister-in-law.

The cast also includes Carrie Brownstein, John Cho, and Billy Magnussen.

"The Oath" is hitting theaters October 12th. Watch the trailer, above.

synopsis:
From the producers of GET OUT & BLACKkKLANSMAN comes a raw and riotous political comedy for divisive times.

A controversial White House policy turns family member against family member in THE OATH, a savagely funny dark comedy about surviving life and Thanksgiving in the age of political tribalism. When Chris (Ike Barinholtz), a high-strung 24-hour progressive news junkie, and his more levelheaded wife Kai (Tiffany Haddish) learn that citizens are being asked to sign a loyalty oath to the President, their reaction is disbelief, followed by idealistic refusal. But as the Thanksgiving deadline to sign approaches, the combination of sparring relatives, Chris's own agitation and the unexpected arrival of two government agents (John Cho and Billy Magnussen) sends an already tense holiday dinner gathering completely off the rails.

As timely as it is outrageous, THE OATH is a gleefully wicked reinvention of the traditional holiday comedy for our divisive political times.
