Default Scott Cooper's Hostiles (Bale, Pike)

I can't find a thread for this?

This will premiere at Telluride along with a Bale career tribute.



Interview with Cooper:

It should be semi decent at least with Cooper and Bale and Pike involved in this. But the fact that it still has no distribution deal and/or a release date is concerning.

I can see this movie going like how The Promise did with a whimper unfortunately.

Reviews from Telluride have been mostly good.

Hostiles is a truly GREAT American Western. Christian Bale is terrific.

Scott Feinberg @ScottFeinberg
Nobody makes films about complicated men better than SCooper. In his latest, HOSTILES, CBale shines. Actor nom if/when someone acquires it.

Mark Johnson @MarkLikesMovies
Gritty and gruesome, Scott Cooper delivers a great western with "Hostiles." @AwardsCircuit #Telluride2017

Amanda Arlington @AKAcitizen
Hostile: Christian Bale in a truly harsh and beautiful performance that echoes the harshness of the landscape in which it was filmed #TFF44

Lulu Flores @lulufloresatx
Just left Hostiles w Christian Bale Rosamund Pike & Wes Studi. Blown away. So far best film at #TellurideFilmFestival Stunning performances.

Scott Mantz @MovieMantz
HOSTILES: Scott Cooper's BEST film yet! Totally engrossing & riveting! #ChristianBale & #RosamundPike are magnificent! #Telluride

brit tucker. ryt 200 @fruitsnutsflake
Pike and Bale are stunning in their roles in the new Scott Cooper film, Hostiles. In my top 3 at #tff44 right now.

Sasha Stone? @AwardsDaily
Unexpectedly blown away by Scott Cooper's Hostiles. I did not think I would be so moved by it. One of the best here at Telluride.

Sasha Stone @AwardsDaily
Woke up sort of crying thinking about the end of Hostiles. Why, I have no idea really. Just that it wandered in and didn't go away. @TFF44

Kristopher Tapley @kristapley
So "Hostiles." Truly draining experience. But packing a profound catharsis. Potent genre work from Scott Cooper.

david ehrlich @davidehrlich
HOSTILES: somebody shoots a baby in the first 90 seconds of this Christian Bale western. there are 130 minutes to go. …I kinda liked it?

buckzollo @buckzollo
Ruggedly beautiful and bloody western epic. I'm still chewing on #Hostiles. Already want to see it again. Four star cast.

Tomris Laffly @TomiLaffly
The almost Remains of the Day ending of #Hostiles nearly killed me. Rest of the film took its toll too. Poetic/stunning slow burn #Telluride

Tomris Laffly @TomiLaffly
The subtle emotional release at the end of #Hostiles wow'ed everyone. Impromptu applause when a certain thing happened. (I joined in too.)

Paul R. Lipton @PaulRLipton
Hostiles ...a wonderful movie. A western of substance and meaning. Christain Bale is outstanding.

The Oscar Predictor @OscarPredictor
#Hostiles was really good, very intense. Isn't it great when the whole ensemble cast goes in the same direction? #TellurideFilmFestival

Gregory Ellwood @TheGregoryE
Scott Cooper has a vision of Hostiles. Bale, Pike are great. Movie gorgeous and brutal but also has a ton of story problems. #telluride

Scott Mantz @MovieMantz
HOSTILES: Brutal, beautiful Western superbly directed by Scott Cooper! Gripping, intense, powerful! #ChristianBale is terrific! #Telluride

Alicia Malone @aliciamalone
HOSTILES: brutal Western about racism toward Native American Indians. Another great performance by Christian Bale & Rosamund Pike #Telluride

Thomas Bailey @thermatic0
#Hostiles is a bold ensemble film, an epic story about the efforts of man fusing with the realities of the earth #TFF44

Eleriina1 @Eleriina1
A solid western with diminishing returns on the storytelling front. Bale & Pike sells it. #Hostiles #Telluride2017

Tomris Laffly @TomiLaffly
Rosamund Pike is so, so, SOOOOO GOOD in #Hostiles. #Telluride

David Poland OMS @DavidPoland
Hostiles is reminiscent of the great The Proposition. Tough, raw, clean. A little less poetic, though Ben Foster kills. Bale is epic.

David Poland OMS @DavidPoland
Christian Bale is playing the most stripped down character he ever has in Hostiles. All eyes and jaw.

THR - A smart and sorrowful Western
Quote:
Beautiful to watch, however, is the slow, incremental flowering of Bale's character. We learn nothing at all specific of his past, but this is a man whose long-term commitment to his country has, after many years of service, left him with nothing to show for it other than a bitter view of the human condition in which killing is a way of life. Blocker's intelligence, which he displays only when he needs to, has served him well, while his toughness, mental and physical, has been essential to his survival. But where can he go from here? The script and the performance reveal the man's makeup with admirable subtlety and to rewarding ends, even if the prevailing mood is one of seldom relieved despair. The ensemble of supporting players is first-rate.
Quote:
Contemplative and absorbing rather than rip-roaring and exciting, the film will likely play better to Western connoisseurs than to general and younger audiences, but it's an estimable piece of work grounded by a fine-grain sensibility and an expertly judged lead performance.
TheWrap - Christian Bale Drives a Great American Western

Quote:
Scott Cooper’s “Hostiles” might well become this generation’s definitive Western for the way it embraces the genre’s traditions while coming to grips with the inescapable admission of our own war crimes.
Quote:
“Hostiles” is beautifully filmed amid endless horizons by Masanobu Takayanagi, the cinematographer who shot both “Out of the Furnace” and “Black Mass.” It features another standout performance by Wes Studi as Chief Yellow Hawk. Pike is marvelous in her pivotal supporting turn. Ultimately, though, the film’s main artery is Bale, whose character undergoes an impossibly wide range of changes.
THR - Christian Bale Returns to Oscar Contention In 'Hostiles'

Quote:
In many ways, Hostiles seems to have been inspired by the films of John Ford, from 1939's Stagecoach (a group of oddballs undertake a long journey together) to, in particular, 1956's The Searchers (in which a deeply racist man is forced to undertake a long journey with a Native American who shares his objective, and which also begins with a massacre very similar to the one with which Hostiles begins).
Quote:
But Bale, a true chameleon who seemingly can do anything — including, in this film, speaking chunks of Cheyenne — makes this film a must-see.
The "worst" is a B- from Indiewire - "Out of the Furnace" director Scott Cooper reteams with Christian Bale for a bloody meditation on violence and the American soul.

Quote:
If “Hostiles” ultimately resolves as Cooper’s best movie to date; the Western genre finally allows the director to reconcile his flair for violence with his fetish for myth-making. Joseph doesn’t know who Yellow Hawk is, but he learns. And in doing so, he also finds out a little something about himself.

Thanks for those Kv. Those reviews are encouraging, and so we know it's a good movie. But it's September now and if the producers are looking to bring it into Oscar play then they need to announce a date ASAP with a distributor and start promoting it.

Best Actor line up ain't looking too strong this year bar Oldman, Damon (?) and DDL (?) maybe if PTA can get it out before December. But if you don;t promote it, it doesn't matter how good reviews are the general audience might not go see it.

Yep. It's going to come down to who distributes it. Apparently, Cooper is already being "hounded" by distributors so I guess we'll know pretty soon? Personally, I just want to see it even if it's on Netflix or Amazon.

I'm happy too with Pike getting these mentions. She kinda disappeared after Gone Girl and she's IMO one of the most fascinating actresses around.

Well Amazon do release it's movies into theatres' so it can qualify for the Oscars. Netflix haven't done it before but they will start with The Irishman. They've realised their mistake BIG TIME over the Beasts' of No Nation fiasco.

But the future is streaming services, so we all better get used to it anyway. Traditional studios will become obsolete in the long run.

Gary Oldman, Christian Bale get jump on Oscar competition at Tellruide

Quote:
The other acting performance that blew me away during the second half of the festival shouldn’t have come as a surprise. After all, any time Christian Bale is in a movie, it’s an event. He’s the rare actor who can say more with his eyes and facial expressions than most others can with the longest and most florid for-your-consideration monologues. And his work in Scott Cooper’s brutal and beautiful new Western, Hostiles, ranks with some of his best.

http://deadline.com/2017/09/hostiles...eo-1202159757/

Quote:
The film can’t afford to wait until 2018, not when so many are raving about the quality of Cooper’s work and particularly a performance by Bale that has him being short listed alongside Gary Oldman’s Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour, and the yet to be seen Denzel Washington in the Dan Gilroy-directed Roman J Israel, Esq that was just added to Toronto and the Paul Thomas Anderson-directed fashion industry film reputed to be the swan song of Daniel Day-Lewis.
A possible Oldman, Bale, DDL, Washington Best Actor line up is craaaazy. That will also make an Oldman win even more possible with the others being previous winners.

Absolutely, she's fantastic and deserves more high profile roles.

Someone needs to pick this up ASAP so we could have Gary Oldman, Daniel Day-Lewis, and Christian Bale all nominated for Best Actor in the same year.

Rosamund Pike didn't disappear after Gone Girl, she just chose projects that ended up being duds critically and/or financially. Or ones that weren't any kind of awards players. That and she had a kid.

I' am quite torn on this Bale's one of my favourite actors, but I've never enjoyed any of Scott Cooper's movies.

Out of the Furnace is probably his best film so far.

In case you guys don't know, Max Richter is scoring this. That, alone, earns it a ticket.
