I’m a big fan of period dramas, and I’m also a big fan of Christian Bale, so chances are I’m going to be a big fan of Hostiles. According to IMDB, Hostiles takes place in 1892, with Captain Joseph J. Blocker (played by Bale) as the centerpiece of the film. It’s a period piece Western directed and co-written by Scott Cooper, who has experience with Bale (Out of the Furnace) and filming in this landscape (Crazy Heart). Racism and prejudice have always existed in America, and I’m interested to see how this film examines the strained relationship between white men and their Native American counterparts. Hostiles does not have a release date yet.
Christian Bale Playing Apple’s Founder Isn’t The Steve Jobs Movie We Need, But It Is The One We Deserve
Just so everyone knows, this is actually happening. Bale is reportedly set to play Jobs in an upcoming biopic with director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 28 Days Later, Trainspotting…etc) at the helm.
I still haven’t seen the Josh Gad/Ashton Kutcher one, but I bet Bale plays Jobs beautifully.
Yesterday we got a sneak peak into the new Ben Stiller movie being released on Christmas Day, and today we get the official trailer for American Hustle, the latest film from Director David O. Russell. Russell goes to his bread and butter for this crime drama, calling on Amy Adams, Christian Bale (The Fighter) Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook). Bale and Adams play con artist partners in crime forced to work the FBI (Cooper) to take down other underworld scum. Their main target: Mayor Carmine Polito, played by Jeremy Renner. An all star cast paired up with one of my favorite directors? I can’t wait for December.
