First Trailer Released for ‘American Hustle’ (VIDEO)

Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Jennifer Lawrence Star

With summer coming closer to an end, studios are already beginning to give a sneak peak at what films might be Oscar bait, with Sony releasing the first trailer for David O. Russell’s “American Hustle.”

Pic stars Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Jennifer Lawrence and is based on the true story of a con artist and his partner/lover who team up with an FBI agent to take down corrupt politicians and criminals in 1970s New Jersey.

Not much is revealed about the plot in the trailer, but it still gives us what kind of look Russell was going for with his cast dressed in lavish 70s attire and a lot of partying.

Film opens in limited released on Dec. 13, followed by a wide release on Christmas Day and is one of a handful of films Sony is releasing this year with Oscar potential. Those other possible contenders include “Captain Phillips” and “Monuments Men.”
