2023 is shaping up to be a stellar year for Guy Ritchie, not only have we finally seen the release of his much-anticipated espionage thriller Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre, but he’s also about to move into production of his much anticipated WWII military historical war film The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare.
Fans can now also look forward to the arrival of a brand new picture from Ritchie, the dramatic war film The Covenant which has just premiered its first trailer and which appears to be a very real departure from Ritchie’s usual style and pomp as a filmmaker and we’re very intrigued with what his bringing to the screen this time around.
Watch the full trailer below:
Here’s the official synopsis:
After his unit is ambushed in Afghanistan, American Special Forces soldier Sgt. John Kinley (Jake Gyllenhaal) finds himself indebted to local interpreter Ahmed (Dar Salim). When it becomes clear to Kinley that Ahmed and his family will be left behind and at the mercy of the Taliban, Kinley mounts a dramatic rescue message to get his friend out alive.
Touching on themes of honour, brotherhood, sacrifice and courage, Guy Ritchie’s The Covenant is a bold and different kind of picture for the veteran director to take on, but it’s shaping to be a very impressive watch. Working for the first time with established Hollywood A-lister Jake Gyllenhaal, Ritchie’s The Covenant looks like a very intense watch and audiences will be in for one hell of a rush with this new film.
Brace yourself for a rush when The Covenant arrives this April.
