Today Relativity Media has released the first trailer for ‘Out of the Furnace.’ The movie is directed by Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart – writer/director) and has an all star cast including Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Forest Whitaker, Willem Dafoe, Zoe Saldana and Sam Shepard.
In the movie, Russell (Christian Bale) and his younger brother Rodney (Casey Affleck) live in the economically-depressed Rust Belt, and have always dreamed of escaping and finding better lives. But when a cruel twist of fate lands Russell in prison, his brother is lured into one of the most violent and ruthless crime rings in the Northeast – a mistake that will almost cost him everything. Once released, Russell must choose between his own freedom, or risk it all to seek justice for his brother.
The trailer has a dismal tone to it and features powerful performances by Bale and Harrelson. Out of the Furnace hits theaters in limited release on November 27 and then goes wide on December 6th. Take a look and let us know what you think.
