Christian Bale gets in touch with his inner John Wayne as he plays a war-battered Army captain traveling through unfriendly Indian lands in the new theatrical trailer for the 1890s-set western "Hostiles."

Scott Cooper, the acclaimed director of "Black Mass," "Crazy Heart," and "Out of the Furnace," reteams with Bale for this tension-building thriller about a post-Civil War military mission to transport a dying Cheyenne war chief and his family through hostile Indian territory.

Bale plays Captain Joseph J. Blocker, an Indian-hating Army officer chosen to escort a legendary war chief (played by Cherokee actor Wes Studi, of "The Last of the Mohicans" and "Dances with Wolves" fame) who has just been granted safe passage to his tribal homeland.

While on the route to Montana, Blocker and his soldiers rescue a stranded frontier widow (played by "Gone Girl" actress Rosamund Pike) whose entire family was just slaughtered by Comanches. As they advance further into enemy territory, Blocker finds himself battling a constant barrage of Indian marauders, as well as a sinking feeling of self-doubt and dread.

Co-starring Jesse Plemons, Ben Foster, Rory Cochrane, Pilou Asbaek, Timothee Chalamet, Adam Beach, Q'orianka Kilcher, and Stephen Lang, "Hostiles" had premiered at both Telluride and TIFF back in September before it was acquired by newly-formed U.S. distributor Entertainment Studios Motion Pictures.

"Hostiles" opens in theaters December 22nd.

synopsis:
1892, New Mexico - legendary Army captain Joseph J. Blocker (Christian Bale) undertakes one final mission before retirement: escort Yellow Hawk (Wes Studi) -- a dying Cheyenne war chief -- and his family back to sacred tribal lands. After 20 years of violent struggle, this gesture of peace is as unthinkable as it is harrowing. Together they battle against a punishing landscape and the brutality of men alike, coming to the rescue of a young widow (Rosamund Pike) amidst the carnage of her murdered family. Two great warriors, once rivals across the battlefield, must learn to trust each other and find peace in an unforgiving land.

A heroic odyssey of survival, HOSTILES becomes a story not about the miles traveled nor the battles fought, but the journey towards respect, reconciliation, and forgiveness.
