Christian Bale is on Fire in 'Out of the Furnace; first look!

From director Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart) comes Out of the Furnace, a tale of Russel (Bale) who is out to get revenge after his brother, played by Casey Affleck goes missing.  Bale ends up in a conflict with the crime ring leader played by Woody Harrelson.  Zoe Saldana (Star Trek, Columbiana) and Forest Whittaker round out this amazing cast. The film takes place in the rust belt town of Braddock which, if these photos are any indication is portrayed beautifully as a raw and gritty area.

Out of the Furnace hits theaters November 27th and I think this is one to look out for come Oscar season and to look forward to!
