Christian Bale doesn't need to speak a single word to make his presence known.
That's evidenced in this clip from his upcoming drama, The Promise, debuting exclusively on ET. The Oscar winner has taken on a number of different roles in the years since he hung up his Batman cowl -- comedies like The Big Short or the biblical Exodus: Gods and Kings -- but in his latest, he plays strong and silent once more while navigating a love triangle opposite Oscar Isaac.
"He wants us to help his wife and family escape," actress Charlotte Le Bon, who plays the woman stuck between the two men, tearfully explains in the clip. "We have to help them and then after that, he'll be gone and we'll never see him again."
The Promise is a historical romance set against the backdrop of the Armenian Genocide, taking place in 1914 amid World War I and the fall of the Ottoman Empire. The film comes from director Terry George (Hotel Rwanda and 2011's Academy Award-winning Best Live Short Film, The Shore).
Here is the movie's official synopsis:
"Empires fall, love survives. When Michael (Isaac), a brilliant medical student, meets Ana (Le Bon), their shared Armenian heritage sparks an attraction that explodes into a romantic rivalry between Michael and Ana’s boyfriend Chris (Bale), a famous American photojournalist dedicated to exposing political truth. As the Ottoman Empire crumbles into war-torn chaos, their conflicting passions must be deferred while they join forces to get their people to safety and survive themselves."
