Two late year releases have offered a second glance into their stories. First there's Scott Cooper's Out of the Furnace starring Christian Bale, Woody Harrelson and Casey Affleck. A story centering around one man's relentless journey to find his missing brother, Out of the Furnace appears to have all the makings of a compelling drama.
Ben Stiller directs and stars in another Oscar-potential feature, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. An office worker who frequently zones out and experiences an imaginative and adventurous fantasy world inside of his head is forced to make things right after he puts a co-worker's job and his own at risk.
