This Friday sees the release of the pulse pounding war action-thriller Guy Ritchie’s The Covenant starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Dar Salim. Needless to say that this movie is right in my action subgenre wheelhouse and with what Ritchie did with Man of Wrath with Starham, I’m very excited to see this one and all the nail biting set pieces that’ll offer.
To celebrate the release MGM and Amazon Studios have released official clips and BTS videos that takes you deep inside the war movie about loyalty and honor. Check them all out in the embedded videos below!
Only In Theaters This Friday, April 21
Guy Ritchie’s The Covenant follows US Army Sergeant John Kinley (Jake Gyllenhaal) and Afghan interpreter Ahmed (Dar Salim). After an ambush, Ahmed goes to Herculean lengths to save Kinley’s life. When Kinley learns that Ahmed and his family were not given safe passage to America as promised, he must repay his debt by returning to the war zone to retrieve them before the Taliban hunts them down first.
