    Oscar Nominee Christian Bale Holds His Roles to a High Standard, from 'American Hustle' to 'Out of the Furnace,' on DVD/Blu-ray March 11

    Christian Bale has shown intensity, shape-shifting and commitment in roles that are more consistently memorable than most actors can claim over a long career. He doesn't agree-- a sign of the high standards to which he holds himself. Clearly he knows how to pick roles-- and deliver. He finally lande...

    Review: Powerful & Confused 'Out Of The Furnace' Starring Christian Bale & Casey Affleck

    In telling the story of a fundamentally decent man's descent into violence and retribution, Scott Cooper's “Out of the Furnace” plants its cues of chilly neo-noir in the claustrophobic corners of America's Rust Belt, and then nearly gets away with its own high-minded meditations.

    Casey Affleck On His PTSD Research For ‘Out Of The Furnace’, Christopher Nolan’s Working Methods On ‘Interstellar’ & More

Scott Cooper's Out of the Furnace doesn't come close to justifying its extreme brutality. Thi...

    Ben Affleck & Matt Damon Tried To Convince Joaquin Phoenix & Casey Affleck To Reveal The Joke Of ‘I’m Still Here’

    It’s interesting to look back on “I’m Still Here,” the faux-documentary that Casey Affleck & Joaquin Phoenix co-conceived in the late aughts about the nature of fame and celebrity.

    'Out of Furnace' Director Sets Record Straight About Christian Bale; Says Public Has Wrong Impression

    "Out of the Furnace," Scott Cooper's follow-up to his debut "Crazy Heart," is an intense film. The same could be said for how the general public perceives its lead Christian Bale, following the infamous audio leak of the Oscar-winner going ballistic on his "Terminator Salvation" director of photogra...
