A new full trailer for American Hustle has just debuted, following the teaser trailer from a few months ago. This new trailer doesn’t have quite the same energy as the teaser (there’s no Led Zeppelin song) but it does reveal more about the story as well as the actor’s performances.
Director David O. Russell’s last two films, Silver Linings Playbook and The Fighter, were both nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars along with two Best Director nominations for Russell. Can he complete the hat trick? Either way, this should be one to look out for during awards season.
A fictional film set in the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock the States, American Hustle tells the story of brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that’s as dangerous as it is enchanting. Jeremy Renner is Carmine Polito, the passionate, volatile, New Jersey political operator caught between the con-artists and Feds. Irving’s unpredictable wife Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence) could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down.
American Hustle boasts an all-star cast which includes Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, Jeremy Renner, Michael Pena, Louis CK, and Robert De Niro. The script was written by director David O. Russell and Eric Singer (The International). The film is set for a limited release on December 13th before expanding nationwide on December 25th.
