Four new images have been released for Scott Cooper’s drama Out of the Furnace. The film stars Christian Bale as an ex-con steel worker who seeks vengeance when his brother (Casey Affleck) disappears after getting involved with a local crime ring. The pic seems to be flying under the radar when it comes to awards prognostication. Perhaps that’s because of early buzz amongst Oscar bloggers (where’s Adam when you need him?!) or because the plot doesn’t reach for something as lofty as other contenders even thought it looks like a compelling character drama. Perhaps its awards fortunes will change when it premieres at AFI Fest later this month.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Zoe Saldana, Woody Harrelson, Willem Dafoe, Sam Shepard, and Forest Whitaker. Out of the Furnace opens in theaters December 6th.
