David O Russell has made some great films and it looks like he’s basically asked everyone who’s been nominated for an Oscar in his last few to come back and be in his new one, American Hustle. The film is a fictionalization of the ABSCAM FBI sting of the 1970s starring Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Renner. That cast alone is enough to get my butt in a seat, but there’s a trailer now too so let’s check that out.
Well that certainly looks like a David O Russell movie doesn’t it? There’s not a whole lot to go on here other than a few good lines and everyone certainly looking good but if his track record holds up this could be another that gets nominated for all the awards.
American Hustle comes out Christmas Day.
