By - July 31st, 2013


Taking viewers back to the polyester-lined 1970s, American Hustle is the highly anticipated follow-up to David O. Russell’s critically acclaimed Silver Linings Playbook. The crime drama features an all-star cast of Russell regulars, including Christian Bale, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Amy Adams. The plot revolves around a fictionalized recounting of the late-’70s FBI ABSCAM sting that resulted in the conviction of a U.S. senator and five Congressmen on corruption charges. Christian Bale, as con artist Irving Rosenfeld, and Bradley Cooper, who plays FBI agent Richie DiMaso, are the two men at the heart of the scam. Along with Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence as girlfriend and wife of the makeshift team, the film also stars Jeremy Renner, Robert DeNiro and Louis C.K. Check out a sneak peek of the trailer below, courtesy of ABC News, and look for American Hustle to hit theaters this December.
