Christian Bale searches for Casey Affleck in the first Out of the Furnace trailer
As is traditionally the case a few days after a studio releases a handful of stills from a film, today we get the first trailer for the Christian Bale starring and Scott Cooper (CRAZY HEART) directed film OUT OF THE FURNACE. The cast and the director are enough to get me into the theater, but I have to admit that I’m not crazy about the first trailer. I was hoping/expecting for something a little deeper and emotionally charged, but again, this is just the first trailer. OUT OF THE FURNACE will star Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Forest Whitaker, Willem Dafoe, Sam Shepard and Zoe Saldana. The Scott Cooper directed film hits theaters on December 6th, with a limited release on November 27th.
The OUT OF THE FURNACE official synopsis: 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.
