Directed by Scott Cooper, writer and director of Crazy Heart, comes Out of the Furnace starring Christian Bale, Woody Harrelson, Casey Affleck, Forest Whitaker, Willem Dafoe, Zoe Saldana and Sam Shepard. The film centers around Russell Baze who works a dead-end blue collar job at the local steel mill by day and cares for his terminally ill father by night. When Russell’s brother Rodney 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.
Look for the film to hit select theaters on November 27 followed by a wider theatrical release on December 6.
