See all new photos released for "Out of the Furnace," starring Christian Bale, plus poster

Written by Barbara Vancheri on .

Playing a little catch up. I was out of the office last week when these first images from “Out of the Furnace” were released. Christian Bale is shown with director Scott Cooper along with co-stars Zoe Saldana and Woody Harrelson. The picture with Bale and Harrelson appeared in Friday's paper.

And if you look closely at the image with Saldana, you will see the fake tat on Bale's neck. It’s 15104, the zip code for Braddock (Mayor John Fetterman has it on his left forearm).
The movie also stars Casey Affleck as Bale’s brother. You can spot him standing over another man during a fight scene. 
“Out of the Furnace,” which will feature an Eddie Vedder song — does it get any better than that? — will be released Thanksgiving week.
No word on whether Pittsburgh will be in the first wave of dates, but we can certainly hope and expect so. Looks terrific.
Cooper, by the way, is the director who led Jeff Bridges to his Oscar gold for “Crazy Heart.”
