Director Scott Cooper reunites with Out of Furnace actor Christian Bale in the epic Western Hostiles. The 1892 set feature centers on a soon to be retiring Army Captain (Bale) who reluctantly escorts a dying Cheyenne war chief (Wes Studi) to Montana. During their journey they meet a widow (Rosamund Pike) whose family was killed by Indians, and together they traverse the various antagonists who mean to do them harm.
“If I have confidence in a director and I trust their judgment,” said Pike on collaborating with Cooper. “I can be completely free and that’s where the real joy of the job lies.”
Pike, who turned in an Oscar nominated performance in Gone Girl, is an esteemed actress in her own right, and in the clip below she talks about admiring the acting talents of Christian Bale.
Hostiles, co-starring Rory Cochrane, is now playing nationwide.
