“Out of the Furnace” will now open everywhere on Dec. 6, according to TheWrap.com.
Relativity Media had announced that the drama, filmed in Pittsburgh more than a year ago, would open in a few cities on Nov. 27 (the day before Thanksgiving) and then go wider after that.
That probably would have meant New York and LA moviegoers would have seen it before Pittsburghers, who have a vested interest. The movie, after all, shot in Braddock, North Braddock, Rankin and elsewhere in Western Pennsylvania for 30-plus days in 2012.
Directed by Scott Cooper (“Crazy Heart”), it stars Christian Bale as Russell Baze, who works a dead-end job at a steel mill by day and cares for his terminally ill father at night. When his brother (Casey Affleck) returns from serving in Iraq, he gets lured into a ruthless crime ring and disappears, prompting Russell to take matters into his own hands.
The film also stars Woody Harrelson, Zoe Saldana, Sam Shepard and Willem Dafoe.
