Must Watch: Trailer for David O. Russell's Con Film 'American Hustle'
"I just got bigger balls than you." Columbia has debuted the first trailer for David O. Russell's American Hustle, his follow-up to the Oscar winning The Fighter, featuring most of the cast from The Fighter. Set in the 1970s, the real-life crime movie stars Christian Bale and Amy Adams as con men forced to work for a wild unhinged FBI agent played by Bradley Cooper. Yep, even Jennifer Lawrence from Silver Linings Playbook shows up too, but this looks like a lot of fun. It reminds me of The Wolf of Wall Street trailer, with nothing but wild music and crazy shit going down. What else do they need to show to sell us on this? Enjoy!
Here's the first trailer for David O. Russell's American Hustle, originally via GMA (now in high def!):
American Hustle is directed by David O. Russell (Flirting with Disaster, Three Kings, I Heart Huckabees, The Fighter, Silver Linings Playbook), working from a script he co-wrote with The International writer Eric Singer. The film, a fictional take on the 1970s FBI sting operation known as Abscam, follows a con-man (Christian Bale) from the Bronx who gets entangled with FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper) as they try to turn the tables on other cons, mobsters, and politicians - namely, the volatile mayor of impoverished Camden, New Jersey. Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams, Robert De Niro, Jeremy Renner and Louis C.K. also star in the film. Columbia will release American Hustle starting on December 13th this winter. You down?
