Just last week Reel True owner, Greg Rouleau, and myself took a look at many of the big-time Oscar contenders in our Oscar Preview Part One and Oscar Preview Part Two. As we published the posts, the first trailer appeared for what looks to be a sure-fire contender during the winter months with Scott Cooper's Out of the Furnace. Christian Bale stars as Russell Baze, a small town man who is forced to take matters into his own hands after local law enforcement refuses to investigate the disappearance of his brother (played by Casey Affleck). Also starring Woody Harrelson in what looks to be a spectacular villainous role, check out the trailer for Out of the Furnace below.
Scheduled to hit theatres just in time for the Halloween holiday is Spike Lee's Oldboy starring Josh Brolin. The remake of the South Korean film of the same name follows a man (Brolin) who was held hostage for 20 years only to inexplicably be released back into the world. But once the man is given his freedom, he embarks on an obsessive mission to seek vengeance on his former captor. Check out the Red Band trailer for Spike Lee's Oldboy below.
