Crazy Heart director Scott Cooper’s new thriller, Out of the Furnace, opens this week and ComingSoon.net got a chance to talk to stars Christian Bale, Casey Affleck and Woody Harrelson, as well as Cooper, about the film. You can watch the interviews in the player below!
The film is a gripping and gritty drama about family, fate, circumstance, and justice. Russell Baze (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 (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.
Out of the Furnace opens in New York and Los Angeles on Wednesday, December 4 before expanding nationwide on Friday, December 6.
