Casey Affleck (center frame) plays an Iraq war vet who becomes involved in underground bare knuckle brawls in Out of the Furnace, in theaters nationwide this weekend. Christian Bale co-stars as the brother who goes after Affleck when the latter goes missing from their economically struggling Pennsylvania mining town.

The plot sounds a bit like Winter’s Bone meets mid-90s Van Damme vehicle, but the credits are promising – director Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart), cinematographer Masanobu Takayanagi (Silver Linings Playbook, The Grey) and a cast that includes Woody Harrelson, Willem Dafoe and Sam Shepard.
