American Hustle – trailer

David O.Russell’s latest effort, after his crowd and award-pleasing Silver Linings Playbook, features a truly impressive cast.

American Hustle sees O. Russell reteam with cast members from his last two previous efforts: Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper (both from Silver Linings Playbook) and Amy Adams and Christian Bale (both seen in The Fighter).

Bale plays Irving Rosenfeld a con artist compelled, alongside his partner in crime and mistress Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) to work with Bradley Cooper’s federal agent in order to infiltrate a world of cons, mobsters, and politicians in impoverished Camden, New Jersey. Lawrence plays Rosenfeld’s wife, whose volatile and unpredictable nature threatens to potentially undermine the operation.

The sleek, stylized trailer looks undeniably great: the period details in particular impress, I can only hope it delivers.
