American Hustle: First Look

Posted by The Daily Zombies Saturday, October 5, 2013

Come Christmas this year, prepare yourself for a hustle so outrageous it can only happen in America. Inspired by the FBI Abscam operation, acclaimed film-maker David O. Russell returns with a stellar ensemble cast in American Hustle. 

An infamous FBI sting operation into public corruption that led to the conviction of numerous notable politicians in the late 1970s and early 1980s, Abscam has been a recurring subject of popular culture realm thanks to its dramatic nature. With David O. Russell's upcoming film American Hustle, expect the acclaimed film-maker to take the ball and run once more in what has been described to a "fictionalization" of the infamous scam operation. 

Reassembling the cast from David O. Russell's previous (and incidentally both award-winning) films, 2010's The Fighter and last year' Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle features a stellar ensemble cast with Christian Bale taking the lead with the very capable support of Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, Jeremy Renner, and Robert De Niro. Based on the teaser trailer and the character poster set released, we are certainly in for a rollicking good times this Christmas. Once again, it appears that Russell has managed to pull off yet another gem that is like what the synopsis describes, defies genre, and more importantly, genuinely fun.

With no further ado, hit the jump for some astoundingly bad hairdo (Bale's combover and Cooper's fro) and intriguing drama, all synched to the tune of Led Zeppelin's rip-roaring "Good Times Bad Times".

Here are the recently-released character posters tuned in consistence to the retro beat.

Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

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 (Christian Bale), who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper).  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 (Jennifer Lawrence) 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.

American Hustle is currently scheduled to be released on Christmas Day.
