Hostiles – Trailer 1 – Christian Bale

Hostiles Hostiles tells the tale of legendary Army captain Captain Joseph J Blocker (Christian Bale) who, in 1892, reluctantly agreed to escort a Cheyenne chief and his family through dangerous territory.

And now, there’s a full trailer, and like the teaser, I wasn’t wowed at all by it. When I heard the words, “I’ve killed everything that ever walked or crawled…”, well, that’s straight out of the brilliant Unforgiven, from Clint Eastwood, so it sounds like he’s trying to rip-off that legendary movie.

The film also stars Rosamund Pike, who can’t act to save her life. Who keeps hiring her?! That said, there are a lot of decent actors in it, too.

Hostiles hasn’t yet got an official release date either in the US or the UK.
