USA Today has published this first look at two photos from writer/director Scott Cooper’s thriller Out of the Furnace,
In the film, Russell (Christian Bale) and his younger brother Rodney (Casey 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.
Co-Stars Woody Harrelson, Forest Whitaker, Willem Dafoe, Sam Shepard, and Zoe Saldana.
