It looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer for one of our most-anticipated films of the fall. After debuting Crazy Heart to great success, director Scott Cooper is following it up with Out of the Furnace, which was previously set for an October bow. But now Deadline reports that Relativity has pushed the film into a limited November 27th release and expansion on December 6th. Featuring Christian Bale, Zoe Saldana, Woody Harrelson, Forest Whitaker, Casey Affleck, Willem Dafoe, Sam Shepard, Boyd Holbrook and more, check out the synopsis and first teaser poster below.
The film is a drama about fate, circumstance, and redemption. Russell and his younger brother live in the economically depressed Rust Belt, and have always dreamed of escaping and finding better lives. But when a cruel twist of fate lands Russell in prison, his brother is lured into one of the most violent and ruthless crime rings in the Northeast – a mistake that will almost cost him everything. Once released, Russell must choose between his own freedom, or risk it all to seek justice for his brother.
Following up the first entertaining trailer, we’ve also got the debut poster for the gambling drama Runner, Runner. Directed by The Lincoln Lawyer helmer Brad Furman, the film sees Justin Timberlake playing a Princeton student who unfairly loses a big online poker gamble and makes it his mission to track down the corrupt site owner played by Ben Affleck, who ends up making JT his right-hand man. The poster also includes co-star Gemma Arterton, but no Anthony Mackie or Ben Schwartz. This one will hopefully be an enjoyable fall entry and one can check it out below via Empire.
