The first trailer for HBO's Oslo has just dropped and it gives us a hint of what to expect from the film, which is based on the true story of the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords.
His Dark Materials co-stars Wilson and Scott play real-life married Norwegian couple Mona Juul, a foreign minister, and Terje Rød-Larsen, a sociologist, who played a pivotal role in negotiations over the Accords.
Adapted from the Tony Award-winning play of the same name, Oslo follows the secret talks between a small group of Israelis and Palestinians, plus Mona and Terje, that led to the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords coming about.
The trailer begins with Mona speaking about the importance of the accords, telling her husband that "if this fails, lives will be ruined". Terje is convinced that his negotiation model will be able to help, but his efforts are met with some scepticism.
It becomes clear very quickly that these talks will not be easy, but the couple are determined to press ahead with them despite the obvious conflicts at play.
Oslo has been put together by some of the same team who created the stage play, with the play's writer JT Rogers and director Bartlett Sher reuniting for the film. Marc Platt, who has worked on Oscar nominees La La Land and The Trial of the Chicago 7, served as an executive producer.
Tara Grace, Senior Vice President, HBO Programming and Films, previously said of the movie: "Recounting the remarkable feat of two diametrically opposed sides coming together to find common ground, Oslo's themes are especially pertinent, and we couldn't be more pleased to have so many revered artisans on both sides of the camera working together to bring this to life."
Oslo will premiere on May 29 on HBO Max in the US. No UK release details have yet been confirmed.
