A new clip has been released from David O. Russell’s (SILVER LINING’S PLAYBOOK) AMERICAN HUSTLE, this time featuring quotes from the Bible (apparently!), business talk and Christian Bale sniffing Jennifer Lawrence’s nails…

Set in the seductive world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock the United States, the film tells the story of brilliant con-man Irving Rosenfeld (Bale – THE DARK KNIGHT), who along with his equally cunning British partner and lover Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams – THE FIGHTER) is forced to work for a wild, unhinged FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper – SILVER LINING’S PLAYBOOK). DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that’s as dangerous as it is enchanting. Jeremy Renner (AVENGERS ASSEMBLE) is Carmine Polito, the passionate, volatile New Jersey political operator caught between the con-artists and police. Irving’s unpredictable wife Rosalyn (Lawrence – THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE) could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down.

Co-starring the brilliant Louis CK (BLUE JASMINE) and legend Robert De Niro (SILVER LINING’S PLAYBOOK), this is certainly not one to miss!

AMERICAN HUSTLE will arrive in US cinemas from 18th December, Vue West End cinemas from 20th December, and nationwide from 1st January 2014.
