Back in the studio system days, a leading man could count on being shoved into war movies, gangster movies, boxing pictures and Westerns.
Christian Bale is getting another crack at the last of those, at long last. Next month, we’ll see if “Hostiles” is as dark and disturbing as this trailer makes it feel. Rosamund Pike co-stars, with Western vet and Bale’s “Yuma” co-star Ben Foster, and…of course, the Great Wes Studi. Long, “Searchers” like story, and the director of “Crazy Heart” reaching for “epic.” I can’t wait.
