‘Out Of The Furnace’ Trailer

An official trailer was released earlier today for the movie Out Of The Furnace.

Directed by Scott Cooper and star-studded with names like Christian Bale, Zoe Saldana, Woody Harrelson, Forest Whitaker, Willem Dafoe, and Casey Affleck, Out Of The Furnace is a film about family and revenge:

When Rodney Baze (Casey Affleck) mysteriously disappears and law enforcement fails to follow through, his older brother, Russell (Christian Bale), takes matters into his own hands to find justice. [IMDB]

Personally, I wasn’t particularly wowed by the trailer. A lot of the acting, along with the tired story of family drama and revenge, seemed bland to me. However, with a cast like this the movie definitely warrants a closer look. Christian Bale really owned his role in The Fighter – which coincidentally also featured a brotherly relationship – and director Scott Cooper has received critical acclaim for his 2009 film Crazy Heart, so maybe Out Of The Furnace will take me by pleasant surprise.

The film will be out in theaters on limited release November 23, 2013, with a wider release starting December 6.
