First Trailer for David O. Russell’s ‘American Hustle’

By Will Ashton


The cast alone in American Hustle was enough to make it one of my most anticipated movies for the rest of the year.

Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Louis C.K., Robert De Niro, Jeremy Renner and Michael Pena, to name a few, are among the all-star cast of the film. But considering that this is co-writer/director David O. Russell’s follow-up to Silver Linings Playbook, this was a must-see from day one.

Now that first trailer is out, and it confirms everything I felt before.

This must be great trailers week or something, because between the teaser for the final season of Breaking Bad, the trailer for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty yesterday and this, Hollywood has been on a role, at least on the trailer front. This trailer is zesty, fun and so chock-full of 70s edge that it makes Argo look like amateur hour. I can’t wait to see it.
