hostilespike1

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.

The epic and oftentimes harrowing Western Hostiles centers on an Army Captain (Christian Bale) who is nearing the end of his service. An unwavering leader who has been scarred by the ravages of war, he is given one final task that he initially refuses to accept – escort a dying Cheyenne war chief (Wes Studi) and his family  from New Mexico to tribal lands in Montana.

During their trek they meet a widow (Rosamund Pike) whose family was murdered by Indians on the plains as well as “hostiles” who have their own distinct motives. Director Scott Cooper, who previously worked with Bale in Out of the Furnace and also helmed the crime drama Black Mass, cites The Searchers as an inspiration for Hostiles.

In the audio clip below, Christian Bale explains why he loves working with Cooper.

PB1190_COMP_V004086458.tif

Adam West, Michael Keaton, Christian Bale, and Ben Affleck are among the actors who have taken on the mantle of Bruce Wayne/Batman, and now the Caped Crusader is off to another adventure with Justice League.

This film has been a long time coming, as this super group serves as the anchor of the DC Comics universe. Batman (Affleck), fearing a threat that could be even more dangerous than his recent run-in with Doomsday, creates the Justice League with Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and the Flash (Ezra Miller). Although he’s not part of the official movie poster, Superman is also a big part of the Justice League, and it will be interesting to see how this film incorporates him into the narrative.

Although Batman’s vigilante tendencies is one of his most intriguing facets, the gadgets and vehicles at his arsenal also grab its share of attention. Click on the media bar below to hear Affleck discuss the “tricked out” Batmobile in Justice League.



Justice League opens nationwide November 17.
