Christian Bale puts down his Batman suit and picks up a rifle in the new trailer for Out Of The Furnace, from director Scott Cooper, who helmed 2009’s Crazy Heart. The story follows former conman Russell Baze (Bale) on a quest for revenge against a vindictive crime ring leader (Woody Harrelson), for whom Baze blames the disappearance of his brother Rodney. As law enforcement is no help in the hunt for his lost sibling, Baze takes it upon himself to fight for justice.
Amidst the blaring shots and pounding fists that amp up the backbone of the story, the trailer has a refreshing amount of heart, thanks in large to the presence of Baze’s protective girlfriend, Avatar’s Zoë Saldana, and the underlying importance of family that weaves its way throughout.
The revenge thriller is jam-packed with a cast of alluring males, for whom we are ever so grateful. Academy Award winner Bale leads the pack, alongside a scruffy Harrelson, Casey Affleck, Willem Dafoe, and Forest Whitaker. Take a peek at the trailer for the film above.
