The first trailer for the Scott Cooper-directed crime drama Out Of The Furnace has arrived. The latest from the director of Crazy Heart has a fantastic cast that includes Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, Zoe Saldana, Woody Harrelson, Forest Whitaker, Sam Shepard, and Willem Dafoe. Check out the trailer and official images from the film below.
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 seeking justice for his brother.
I must say, this looks like a huge step up from Crazy Heart, which I actually thought was pretty good to begin with. Scott Cooper has assembled quite the ensemble cast, which leads me to believe that this will be a film to keep an eye on later this year.
Out Of The Furnace will be arriving in limited on November 27th with a planned expansion on December 6th. What do you think of the trailer?
