Plot Summary: 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.
Definitely looks like a compelling movie. It's been a while since I've seen a good dramatic thriller at the movies so I might just give this a look when it comes out.
The EC: Good for Business.

That's pretty stacked cast.
Just watched the trailer and now I'm pretty pumped for this. I agree that they give a lot away but that's alright since at least we know what we're getting.
That isn't too many theaters, but still the numbers are pretty bad.For whatever reason, Relativity Media decided to open Crazy Heart director Scott Cooper's latest drama-thriller Out of the Furnace, starring Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Willem Dafoe and Zoe Saldana, in New York and Los Angeles on Wednesday before expanding to 2,101 theaters on Friday. With two strong movies still the top two choices in theaters and reviews being lackluster at best, the star-studded drama suffered the same fate as many other post-Thanksgiving releases, settling for third place with a measly $5.3 million with an additional $27 thousand for Wednesday and Thursday.
Just saw this movie I actually liked the movie.Woody Harrelson is a villain I wanted badly to get killed throughout the film and his conflict with Bale and Casey Affleck's character was great to see.It deals with the world in 08, but also makes you decide and think if you were in this position, would you find success the good way, or would walk on the other side of road in life? Also you find yourself in a position where someone has wrong you in life, do you fix the problems your way, or let the law take over? Overall it was a good movie and I love movies that make me think what would I do here and there.
