New images and a poster for Out of the Furnace have been released, courtesy of EW. Directed by Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart), the film stars Christian Bale as an ex-con steel worker who seeks vengeance after his brother (Casey Affleck) vanishes after being lured into a ruthless crime ring. Cooper has been quoted saying “this is the story of this man who works in a blast furnace, but with themes of justice, retribution and courage.”
Out of the Furnace is due for limited release on 27th November 2013.
The film is a drama about fate, circumstance, and redemption. Russell and his younger brother 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.
