The acting career of Christian Bale has been somewhat erratic. Since making his acting debut in Steven Spielberg’s WWII drama “Empire of the Sun” when he was only a young teenager, Bale has appeared in live-action and animated Disney musicals, queer New Wave cult classics, a trilogy of Batman films and ‘Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle’ where he played a strangely human-like version of Bagheera from “The Jungle Book.” Most recently, he played Gorr the God Butcher in ‘Thor: Love and Thunder‘. 

He’s also become infamous for his unsettling weight increases and losses for jobs (something Bale, luckily, claims he’s done with), and his viral outburst on the “Terminator Salvation” set notably overshadowed his on-screen performance (an incident which, to his credit, Bale has taken actual responsibility for).

Here are three upcoming movies of Christian Bale you do not want to miss out on.

1. Amsterdam (2022)

Amsterdam is an upcoming historical drama which features John David Washington, Margot Robbie, Robert De Niro, Anya Taylor-Joy, Rami Malek, Zoe Saldana, and many more well-known performers. Bale is reunited with his “The Fighter” and “American Hustle” director David O. Russell. This stellar cast makes the movie sound interesting especially when it involves the director who guided Christian Bale to his first Oscar triumph.

2. The Pale Blue Eye (2022)

In this movie, Bale is reuniting with the director Scott Cooper who has directed famous movies like “Out of the Furnace” and “Hostiles”. This movie is an adaptation of Louis Bayard’s 2006 murder mystery novel about a retired, reclusive police detective who agrees to take a case involving a purported death by suicide and, bizarrely, a missing heart at West Point Academy in 1830, where their previous collaborations took the forms of a crime drama.

3. The Church of Living Dangerously (TBA)

Bale will again be seen in theatres for his new movie “The Church of Living Dangerously.” This is a story of how one of America’s biggest pastors became a drug runner for a Mexican cartel. Bale will play the Living Hope Church pastor John Lee Bishop in the film, which will have a script written by Randolph and directed by none other than David O Russell.
