First Trailer for David O. Russell’s American Hustle

A few days ago we showed you the first stills from the movie, now you can check out the first trailer for American Hustle.


American Hustle tells the true story of a sting operation that took place in the 1970s and early 80s led by an FBI agent (Cooper) who teams with the world’s best con man (Bale) in order to shine a light on corruption in Congress. Jeremy Renner will play a state assembly leader, Adams will play Maxine “Max” Gardner, the mistress and co-conspirator of Bale’s character, and Lawrence will play Bale’s wife.

The film also stars Robert De Niro, Louis C.K., Michael Pena, and Jack Huston.

The movie has one hell of a line-up. O. Russell must be gathering willing stars after his past two films, Silver Linings Playbook and The Fighter, earned many of the starring actors Oscar nominations; with Christian Bale, Melissa Leo and Jennifer Lawrence all taking home Academy Awards.

In the States, American Hustle opens in limited release on December 13th before going wide on Christmas Day.
