American Hustle is an upcoming Crime Drama film featuring performances by Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Jennifer Lawrence. The film is directed by David O. Russel (who also brought us 1999’s Three Kings, 2004’s I heart Huckabees, 2010’s The Fighter and 2012’s Silver Lining’s Playbook). Russell also co-wrote the script for American Hustle with Eric Warren Singer.
The film tells the story of a con man (Christian Bale) and his seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) who are forced to work for a wild FBI agent (Bradley Cooper). The agent pushes them into a world of Jersey power brokers and mafia. To shake things up a bit there’s also a New Jersey political operator (Jeremy Renner) caught between the con-artists and feds and a FBI agent’s wife (Jennifer Lawrence) who could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down. American Hustle is a fictional film set in the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock the USA.
American Hustle has been set for release on the 25th of December 2013 in the United States and promises to be one of the best films of the year. Judging by the trailer below audiences can expect a film with lots of intrigue, drama, excellent dialogue and an amazing soundtrack. I almost didn’t recognize Christian Bale when I saw the trailer for the first time. He gained a lot of weight for this film and you can clearly pick that up in the trailer below:
