Out Of The Furnace Christian Bale Woody Harrelson

"RELEAAAAAASSSE MEEEEEEEEEEE," Eddie Vedder bellows all over this first trailer for Scott Cooper's "Out of the Furnace," adding a pretty dense layer of fromage to what looks like a pretty gritty little drama. Let's hope it's just a case of good movie, not so hot trailer? We'll see, but let's dive in...

As you know, the marks on this one being something solid are all over it, starting with the cast—Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Zoe Saldana, Sam Shepard and Willem Dafoe—followed by the guy who made "Crazy Heart" into a sleeper hit behind camera. And though the story on the surface seems a bit familiar—brother goes on a quest to find his younger sibling who falls into the clutches of a crime ring—this looks very well realized. Not only from the grimy Rust Belt setting, but the actors all seem to be bringing their A-game, with Bale's tortured lead running up against Harrelson's crazy baddie (though, can we stop with villains eating candy? That cliché needs to die....).

An Oscar season slot awaits, as "Out of the Furnace" will put you on boil starting on November 27th.
