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.
