The highly successful independent director, Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart, Black Mass) reunites with his Out of the Furnace star and Oscar® winner Christian Bale (Best Supporting Actor, The Fighter, 2010) in what is being hailed by Entertainment Weekly as “the first great western since 1992’s Unforgiven.” Hostiles also stars Oscar® nominee Rosamund Pike (Best Actress, Gone Girl, 2014), Wes Studi (Avatar, The Last of the Mohicans), Primetime Emmy® nominee Jesse Plemons (Best Actor, “Fargo,” 2014), Golden Globe® nominee Adam Beach (Best Actor, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, 2007), and Ben Foster (Hell or High Water, Lone Survivor).
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 (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 (Pike), whose family was murdered on the plains. Together, they must join forces to overcome the punishing landscape, hostile Comanche, and ruthless outliers that they encounter along the way.
