QC Entertainment has released a new red band trailer for The Oath, which will be released in select theaters on October 12 and everywhere else on October 19. It was directed by Ike Barinholtz, who stars with Tiffany Haddish, John Cho, Carrie Brownstein, Billy Magnussen, Meredith Hagner, Nora Dunn, Jon Barinholtz and Chris Ellis. Barinholtz also wrote the film and will produce with Sean McKittrick, Ray Mansfield, David Stassen and Andrew Robisnon. Haddish, Edward H. Hamm Jr. and Kristen Murtha will executive produce.

Here’s a 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 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’s own agitation and the unexpected arrival of two government agents send 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.
