Christian Bale is Out Of The Furnace in the first trailer for the thriller with Casey Affleck and Woody Harrelson

Jul. 11, 2013by: Paul Shirey

Yesterday, we got our first look at the poster for OUT OF THE FURNACE, the new thriller from director Scott Cooper (CRAZY HEART) and today we have a look at the trailer for the film, which looks so much more than just a simple revenge thriller, but a heartfelt, tense, and dramatic thriller with a powerhouse cast. I wouldn't expect a plug-and-play actioner from Cooper to begin with, but this looks much better than anticipated with stars Christian Bale, Woody Harrelson, and Casey Affleck bringing their A-game.

Take a look:

Here's the synopsis:

From Scott Cooper, the critically-acclaimed writer and director of Crazy Heart, comes a gripping and gritty drama about family, fate, circumstance, and justice. Russell Baze (Christian Bale) has a rough life: he 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 (Casey Affleck) 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. The impressive cast of Christian Bale and Casey Affleck are rounded out by Woody Harrelson, Forest Whitaker, Zoe Saldana, Sam Shepard and Willem Dafoe.

This, to me, is what great filmmaking is all about. Rounding up a tremendous cast, putting them in a world that's unlike their own, and making a story that feels convincing and real under extreme circumstances. OUT OF THE FURNACE is officially on the "must see" list.

OUT OF THE FURNACE opens on November 27, 2013 (Limited) and December 6, 2013 (Expansion)

Extra Tidbit: Glad to see Bale back in action after hanging up the cowl.

Yep

I was very excited about this one and now I'm much more excited. It looks like a very powerful drama/thriller. Woody looks like he will be putting fourth a ruthless performance and Bale looks like he is finally cementing his place as not just a great character actor but a great leading man. Its always good to see Willem Defoe and Forrest Whittaker as well.

It was already on my must see list when they announced the cast for this. This trailer only justified my anticipation for this project... Vedder's involvement didn't hurt either.

These days if you want to give an authentic Americana vibe, cast Sam Shepard.

I know it's supposed to be cool to like Pearl Jam, and that that specific track inspired Cooper to write this story, but I just can't stand it. Especially around the climax when Vedder keeps yelling to be released... I wish somebody did.
The film itself looks pretty damn great though.

What can't you stand? That you grew up listening to them or the fact they included the song with the trailer?

That they included the song. If you ask me; Pearl Jam is just a grungier version of Nickelback with, perhaps, slightly better lyrics.
And I didn't grow up listening to them.

Super pumped for this

They filmed this in SW Pa (Pittsburgh) last spring. This looks amazing and the sad part is this was I believe the last film produced by Tony Scott.

Also, one of PJ's best songs, ever!

Psycho Woody Harrelson

Haven't seen crazy heart yet, but I'll have to check it out. This looks really solid, plus ole Woody getting his "hill folk" on should be great

Favorite trailer...hopefully favorite movie

BRILLIANT choice to use old school grunge to establish the atmosphere. This looks like old school grittiness in a way we haven't seen in a long time. I'm sold and then some.
