‘Out of the Furnace’ Brings Bale and Affleck for Grittiest Movie of the Year

Man, does this movie have a killer cast. Christian Bale, Woody Harrelson, Casey Affleck, Forest Whitaker, Willem Dafoe, Zoë Saldana AND Sam Shepard! The trailer promises a gritty thriller and what looks like one of the best dramas to come out this year. On top of the amazing cast, its got director/co-writer Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart) at the helm.

“Russell Baze (Christian Bale) works a dead-end job at the local steel mill, as his terminally ill father did before him. When Russell’s brother Rodney (Casey Affleck) returns home from serving time in Iraq, he gets lured into one of the most ruthless crime rings in the Northeast and mysteriously disappears. The police fail to crack the case, so – with nothing left to lose – Russell takes matters into his own hands, putting his life on the line to seek justice for his brother. Sometimes your battles choose you.”

Look for a December 6th release date.
