Thanksgiving Gets Absolutely Bonkers in Bed-Band Trailer For THE OATH
A red-band trailer has been released for the upcoming Thanksgiving dark comedy The Oath and this movie looks so damn funny! The movie stars Ike Barinholtz and Tiffany Haddish and the film focuses on a family coming together for Thanksgiving, but things take a crazy-ass turn for the worse when they start talking politics at the dinner table. Then things completely fly off the handle when the White House implements a new policy.
As you’ll see, the film is obviously inspired by the current political climate that we currently find ourselves in the middle of in the U.S. Here’s the synopsis:
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.
The Oath hits theaters this fall on October 12, 2018.
