The Oath — New Teaser Trailer


added: Wed, Sep 5th '18

A new teaser trailer has been released for "The Oath," a politically-charged Thanksgiving comedy written and directed by and starring comic actor Ike Barinholtz, of "The Mindy Project" and "Blockers" fame.

The darkly comic satire, which also features "Girls Trip" star Tiffany Haddish as Barinholtz's wife, follows an ordinary middle-class American family as they try to get through a normal Thanksgiving dinner without bringing up politics or any hot-button issues of the day. Naturally, things inevitably go south when Barinholtz's left-leaning character can't help but talk about the government's new controversial edict, which is ordering all Americans to sign a "loyalty oath." Of course, the deadline is the day after Thanksgiving... Black Friday.

The cast also includes Nora Dunn, Chris Ellis, Jon Barinholtz, Carrie Brownstein, Meredith Hagner, with John Cho, and Billy Magnussen.

"The Oath" is scheduled to open in select theaters on October 12th.

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.
