First Trailer For David O. Russell’s Crime Caper ‘American Hustle’ Hits!

Following on from Monday’s official stills debut for David O. Russell’s fact-based Abscam comic drama, AMERICAN HUSTLE (formally AMERICAN BULLSHIT), we have have our first look at the trailer thanks to Good Morning America. It’s Russell’s first film since his Oscar-winning dramedy SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, centring on an undercover sting operation set up during the 1980 by a con artist working for the FBI, who uncovered significant political corruption.

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 , who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso.  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 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.

Christian Bale plays the con artist Irving Rosenfeld, who along with his accomplice lover Sydney Prosser rooted out the bad apples in the big case. Joining Russell’s aforementioned THE FIGHTER duo are his SLP trio Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and Robert De Niro. The film also co-stars Jeremy Renner, Louis C.K., Michael Pena, Jack Huston and gets a limited US release on December 13th before going wide on Christmas Day. It will hit the UK Boxing Day.

Craig was our great north east correspondent, proving that it’s so ‘grim up north’ that losing yourself in a world of film is a foregone prerequisite. He has been studying the best (and often worst) of both classic and modern cinema at the University of Life for as long as he can remember. Craig’s favorite films include THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, JFK, GOODFELLAS, SCARFACE, and most of John Carpenter’s early work, particularly THE THING and HALLOWEEN.
