Boasting one of the finest casts put together so far this year, David O. Russell’s (The Fighter, Silver Linings Playbook) new film, American Hustle, has just released its incredible second trailer.
Using the cast to the best of their abilities, and brilliantly realising the 1970’s setting, American Hustle looks stunning, and will no doubt give Russell another massive hit on his hands when it is released in cinemas this December.
David O. Russell directs from a script co-written by himself and Eric Singer. The cast includes Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Christian Bale, Jeremy Renner, Louis C.K., Michael Pena, Robert De Niro and Jack Jones.
American Hustle arrives in UK cinemas on December 20th.
A fictional film set in the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock our nation, 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. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, American Hustle defies genre, hinging on raw emotion, and life and death stakes.
