Pretty Much Everyone In The First HOSTILES Trailer Seems Hostile

In which Christian Bale gets his hands dirty in the old west.

We've seen a torrential downpour of new trailers today, but there's still plenty more to go.

Next up to bat: the first trailer for Scott Cooper's Hostiles, which stars noted funnyman Christian Bale as "as an Army captain who agrees to help bring a dying Cheyenne war chief and his family back to their tribal lands in the year 1892." If you're thinking, "Wow, I bet that's gonna be very grim and violent," this trailer seems to support your theory.

Check it out:

So that looks...grim and violent! We're not opposed! And even if we were, there's no denying this cast, which - in addition to Bale - includes Rosamund Pike, Wes Studi, Jesse Plemons, and The New World's Q’orianka Kilcher.

Hostiles just screened to strong reviews at the Telluride Film Festival and is currently seeking distribution. We'll let you know when it has a home (and a release date). Until that day arrives: I should probably get around to seeing 3:10 To Yuma, huh?
