THE COVENANT: Jake Gyllenhaal Stars in Guy Ritchie’s Unflinching War Drama about Survival & the Ultimate Friendship (Update: New Images Drop!
The trailer for director Guy Ritchie’s newest endeavor The Covenant has dropped and it showcases Jake Gyllenhaal as a soldier who must rely on a local interpreter to survive the harsh landscapes of Afghanistan. Check out the trailer for the unflinching war drama about survival, loyalty and undying friendship below!
The film boasts a spectacular cast that includes The Boys’ Antony Starr, Alexander Ludwig, Emily Beecham and Dar Salim.
Gyllenhaal made a name for himself starring in the Marine war drama Jarhead and now he returns to the genre with a powerful new film that showcases one man’s determination to pay back a debt. Ritchie is a filmmaker that doesn’t hold back and tells his stories in unusual ways so expect something different here.
The trailer without a doubt showcases Ritchie’s merging of fierce combat action, unbridled brotherhood and heartfelt grab a hanky human drama. Oh yeah, this one’s right in my wheelhouse and Ritchie is certainly demonstrating that he has a knack for helming action and Gyllenhaal is in full on action hero mode with this one.
