Columbia Pictures has released the first theatrical trailer for their drama American Hustle. The film is directed by David O. Russell, who wrote the film along with Eric Singer. The period drama stars Amy Adams, Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Peña, Jeremy Renner, and Louis C.K. American Hustle is scheduled to hit theaters on December 25, 2013.
A fictional film set in the seductive world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock our nation, American Hustle tells the story of brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (Bale), who along with his equally cunning British partner and lover Sydney Prosser (Adams) is forced to work for a wild unhinged FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Cooper). DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that’s as dangerous as it is enchanting. Renner is Carmen Polito, the passionate, volatile, New Jersey political operator caught between the con-artists and Feds. Irving’s unpredictable wife Rosalyn (Lawrence) could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down.
