Check out the newest poster for Ike Barinholtz’s The Oath
The new dark comedy from Ike Barinholtz, The Oath, just got a new poster. The movie, which plays off the era of feuding politics and how it impacts families, riffs on its political theme with a not-so-subtle Uncle Sam aesthetic. Check out the poster below!
The Oath is described as a savagely funny dark comedy about surviving life and Thanksgiving in the age of political tribalism. When Chris, a high-strung 24-hour progressive news junkie, and his more level-headed wife Kai 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’s own agitation and the unexpected arrival of two government agents send an already tense holiday dinner gathering completely off the rails.
The cast includes Barinholtz as Chris, Tiffany Haddish as Kai, John Cho (Star Trek Beyond, Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle, Searching), Carrie Brownstein (Portlandia, Transparent), Billy Magnussen (Into the Woods, Ingrid Goes West), Meredith Hagner (Veep, Search Party), Nora Dunn (Southland Tales, Saturday Night Live), Jon Barinholtz (Dumb and Dumber To, Superstore) and Chris Ellis (Armageddon, Murder in the First).
The film is directed and written by Barinholtz. He also serves as the film’s producer along with Sean McKittrick, Ray Mansfield, David Stassen for 23/24 Pictures and Andrew Robinson. The Oath‘s executive producers are Haddish, Edward H. Hamm Jr. and Kristen Murtha.
QC Entertainment (Get Out) has financed and produced the film. The Oath will premiere in theaters on October 12.
