Amy Adams and Christian Bale in American Hustle

Columbia Pictures has released a new trailer for American Hustle, David O. Russell’s 70s-set Abscam drama which reunites the director with The Fighter’s Christian Bale and Amy Adams and Silver Linings Playbook stars Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and Robert De Niro. Joining them in the cast are Jeremy Renner (The Avengers), Michael Pena (End of Watch), Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire), Louis C.K. (Louie), Alessandro Nivola (Ginger & Rosa) and Elisabeth Rohm (The Client List). Check out the new trailer after the official synopsis…

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 is set for release on Christmas Day in North America and Boxing Day here in the UK.
