The bond between brothers is one that can’t be broken by distance or circumstance, but it can be tested, and it’s that chain that’s rattled in the upcoming “Out Of The Furnace.” As the film gets ready to roll into the awards season mix, a brand new trailer is here, and it looks quite promising indeed.
In 2009, Scott Cooper‘s “Crazy Heart” seemed to storm in from out of nowhere, and ‘Furnace’ is sort of doing the same, albeit this one is coming with much more firepower. Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Zoe Saldana, Sam Shepard, Willem Dafoe and Forest Whitaker star in the Rust Belt drama about a man who goes on a quest to find his younger sibling who falls into the clutches of a crime ring. And this looks gritty as hell, and if we’re throwing around glib comparisons, perhaps like some kind of mashup between “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints” and “Prisoners.” Or something. Essentially, it’s the kind of drama that’s right in our wheelhouse and we can’t wait to see this one. -Indiewire.

(The Movie Poster of ‘Out Of The Furnace’)
Russell Baze (Bale) and his younger brother Rodney Jr. (Affleck) 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.
