Christian Bale stars in Relativity Media's Out of the Furnace.
Bale, Affleck and Harrelson star in thriller Out of the Furnace. A number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following film opening in wide release:

Out of the Furnace
Genre: Thriller
Cast: Christian Bale, Woody Harrelson, Casey Affleck, Forest Whitaker, Willem Dafoe, Zoë Saldana and Sam Shepard
Director: Scott Cooper
Rated: R

Russell Baze (Christian Bale) and his younger brother Rodney (Casey Affleck) were born and

raised in Braddock, Pa., a hardscrabble Rust Belt hamlet that has been home to generations of American steel workers.

Russell followed their father into the mills, while Rodney took the only other option open to young men like him and enlisted in the Army, hoping to find a better life outside of Braddock.

But after four brutal tours of duty in Iraq, an emotionally and physically depleted Rodney returns to a recession-weary town that offers even fewer options than before he left. When a cruel twist of fate lands Russell in prison, his younger brother tries to make ends meet by betting on horses and competing as a bare-knuckle boxer. Mired in debt, he soon finds himself enmeshed with a vicious sociopath, Harlan DeGroat (Woody Harrelson), the leader of a ruthless backwoods crime ring in the New Jersey Ramapo Mountains.

When Rodney suddenly disappears shortly after his brother is released from prison, Russell descends into a corrupt and violent-fueled world seeking answers. Embarking on a road that few dare to travel, Russell will stop at nothing to bring his brother home.

The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.

Expecting
Genre: Comedy and drama
Cast: Michelle Monaghan, Radha Mitchell, Jon Dore, Michael Weston and Mimi Kennedy
Director: Jessie McCormack
Not rated

After years of struggling to conceive with her husband, Lizzie (Radha Mitchell) has given up hope of having a baby on her own.

But when her best friend Andie (Michelle Monaghan) finds herself pregnant after a one-night stand, an unexpected solution arises: Andie offers to have the baby and give it to Lizzie. The couple agrees to the plan, on one condition: Andie must move in with them for the duration of the pregnancy. But can the women's friendship survive until birth? Jessie McCormack's debut is a refreshingly candid comedy about planning ahead for life's unexpected detours.

Inside Llewyn Davis
Genre: Biography, drama and musical
Cast: Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, Garrett Hedlund, F. Murray Abraham and Justin Timberlake
Director: Joel Coen and Ethan Coen
Rated: R

“Inside Llewyn Davis” follows a week in the life of a young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961.

Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he is struggling to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles – some of them of his own making.

The Last Days on Mars
Genre: Science fiction and thriller
Cast: Liev Schreiber, Elias Koteas, Romola Garai, Olivia Williams and Tom Cullen
Director: Ruairi Robinson
Rated: R

On the last day of the first manned mission to Mars, a crewmember of Tantalus Base believes he has made an astounding discovery – fossilized evidence of bacterial life.

Unwilling to let the relief crew claim all the glory, he disobeys orders to pack up and goes out on an unauthorized expedition to collect further samples. But a routine excavation turns to disaster when the porous ground collapses and he falls into a deep crevice and near certain death. His devastated colleagues attempt to recover his body. However, when another vanishes they start to suspect that the life-form they have discovered is not yet dead.

As the group begins to fall apart it seems their only hope is the imminent arrival of the relief ship Aurora.

S#x Acts
Genre: Drama
Cast: Sivan Levy, Eviatar Mor, Roy Nik and Niv Zilberberg
Director: Jonathan Gurfinkel
Not rated

Naïve teen Gili (Sivan Levy) changes schools and is determined to improve her social status by hooking up with the most popular guys.

But as she pushes her own limits with every new encounter – offering a succession of sexual favors and allowing herself to be photographed and filmed – the line of consent begins to blur. Israeli filmmaker Jonathan Gurfinkel's provocative debut is raw, racy, and immediately recognizable.
