'The Oath' trailer: Tiffany Haddish and co. dragged through a turbulent yet hilarious Thanksgiving
The film's concept revolves around a controversial White House policy that ends up turning a family member against another.
A comedy featuring an insane argument between liberals and the rest of the world? If you're interested, then this film is just for you. Roadside Attractions is releasing a new dark comedy called 'The Oath' this October.
The film's concept revolves around a controversial White House policy that ends up turning a family member against another in this savagely funny dark comedy about surviving life and Thanksgiving in the age of political tribalism.
Watch the trailer below:
The plot is pretty upbeat too - When Chris (Ike Barinholtz), a high-strung 24-hour progressive news junkie, and his more level-headed wife Kai (Tiffany Haddish) learn that citizens are being asked to sign a loyalty oath to the President, their reaction is disbelief, followed by an idealistic refusal.
But as the Thanksgiving deadline to sign approaches, the combination of sparring relatives, Chris’ 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.
The cast features names like Ike Barinholtz, Tiffany Haddish, John Cho, Carrie Brownstein, Billy Magnussen, Meredith Hagner, Jon Barinholtz, Nora Dunn, and Chris Ellis.
Tiffany Haddish, Edward H. Hamm Jr., and Kristen Murtha serve as executive producers while Sean McKittrick, Ray Mansfield, Ike Barinholtz, David Stassen, and Andrew Robinson serve as producers. This film, written and directed by Ike Barinholtz, comes from the makers of 'Get Out' and 'BlacKkKlansman.'
'The Oath' hits theaters on October 12, 2018.
