Out Of The Furnace
Scott Cooper’s directorial follow-up to the country music film Crazy Heart couldn’t be further from it. Out of the Furnace follows Russell (Christian Bale) and Rodney (Casey Affleck), two brothers whose impoverished lives have been built upon dreams of something better. As Russell lands in prison, Rodney sacrifices a lot to join a dangerous crime ring. Once Russell is a free man, he must decide whether to stay that way or to find a way to rescue his brother. I’m guessing he chooses to rescue him, since that’s just the kind of brother Bale is. Expect a lot of seething in this one.
Director: Scott Cooper
Stars: Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson
Release Date: December 6

The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, the middle film in Peter Jackson’s trilogy, will follow the wide-eyed Bilbo Baggins and wise wizard Gandalf as they lead a clan of dwarves on a journey through Middle Earth so they can fight the wickedly voiced dragon Smaug. There’s nothing about this movie I can tell you that you don’t already know. Big action scenes (particularly the barrel sequence), CGI creatures and awkward dialogue will fill your time until the eventual cliffhanger leading us into There and Back Again, due out next year.
Director: Peter Jackson
Stars: Martin Freeman, Benedict Cumberbatch, Ian McKellen
Release Date: December 13
