Academy Award winner Christian Bale has sunk his teeth in Hostiles, a new western directed by Scott Cooper.
Set in 1892, Hostiles tells the story of a legendary Army Captain ( Bale) who, after stern resistance, reluctantly agrees to escort a dying Cheyenne war chief (Wes Studi) and his family back home to tribal lands.
Making the harrowing and perilous journey from New Mexico to the grasslands of Montana, the former rivals encounter a young widow (Rosamund Pike) whose family was murdered on the plains.
Together, they must join forces to overcome the punishing landscape, hostile Comanche, and vicious outliers they encounter along the way.
Hostiles also stars Adam Beach, Ben Foster, Jesse Plemons, and Q’orianka Kilcher.
