`Hostiles` is existential movie for me: Rosamund Pike
Actress Rosamund Pike said 'Hostiles' is an existential movie with a simple story. "I didn't think of this as a genre film. This is very much an existential movie for me. The story is quite simple and yet there's so much," Pike said in a statement.
"The human landscape of it is vast. There's tremendous interplay between these characters. They've all seen such darkness and it's affected them in different ways," she added.
Set in 1892, 'Hostiles' stars Christian Bale as a captain who agrees to escort a dying Cheyenne war chief (Wes Studi) and his family back home to tribal lands. The journey takes Bale and his detail from New Mexico to the grasslands of Montana.

'Hostiles' will release in India on February 16.
