Colombia Pictures has released a fantastic new trailer for David O. Russell’s American Hustle starring Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, and Jennifer Lawrence. The film centers on an undercover sting operation known as ABSCAM, which was set up by a con artist (Bale) who works with an FBI agent (Cooper) along with his mistress (Adams) to bring down a series of corrupt public officials. While the first trailer was crazy good, this new trailer is even better yet. Check it out below (courtesy of Yahoo! Movies).
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.
American Hustle will arrive in limited theaters on December 13th before opening nationwide on December 25th. What do you think of the latest trailer?
