Scott Cooper’s Hostiles has gained attention after its successful premiere at Telluride this past weekend, and now the film has released its first teaser. Hostiles stars Christian Bale as an army captain who brings a dying Cheyenne war chief and his family back to their land in the desolate western landscape of the 1890s.
The teaser features stunning imagery of vast land alongside brutal fights and fires, sure marks of what Deadline cites as a film that “can’t afford to wait until 2018, not when so many are raving about the quality of Cooper’s work.”
The film does not yet have a distributor, but should it get picked up and released this fall, it is expected to contend for awards, especially for Bale’s lead performance, The Wrap notes.
