The latest trailer for Out of the Furnace shows that the film could not have a better title. You almost want to finish saying the title with the rest of the phrase… and into the fire. Christian Bale and Casey Affleck star as brothers who are trying to make a life for themselves in economically hard-hit Pittsburgh.
As teased in the first Out of the Furnace trailer, Bale is an ex-con steel worker who seeks revenge when his brother disappears. Bale suspects that the local crime lord, played by Woody Harrelson, has something to do with it. The dark thriller is helmed by Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart) and also stars Zoe Saldana, Forest Whitaker, Sam Shepard and Willem Dafoe.
Out of the Furnace lands in theaters in time to qualify for the Oscars on December 6.
