Hostiles review

The new trailer for the brooding Hostiles, the new film starring Christian Bale, Rosamund Pike, Wes Studi and Ben Foster, has arrived online. The brooding western first debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival in September (where we reviewed it), and arrives in cinemas Stateside, from where this new promo originates, on 22nd December.

Set in 1892, Hostiles tells the story of a legendary Army Captain (Christian Bale), who after stern resistance, reluctantly agrees to escort a dying Cheyenne war chief (Wes Studi) and his family back to tribal lands. Making the harrowing and perilous journey from Fort Berringer, an isolated Army outpost in 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 that they encounter along the way.

Hostiles is directed by Scott Cooper (Black Mass, Out of the Furnace, Crazy Heart) and produced by John Lesher (Black Mass, Birdman, Fury) and Ken Kao (The Nice Guys, Knight of Cups).

UK cinema audiences can catch the film in multiplexes from December 29th. Here’s the new trailer.
