UPDATE: There's a fresh new poster assembling American Hustle's characters into one Oscary ensemble. Fun fact: The hairspray was used in the making of this poster blew a hole in the ozone layer the size of Watford.
Yes, Russell has somehow convinced Silver Linings Playbook stars Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, along with The Fighter’s Amy Adams and Christian Bale and new recruit Jeremy Renner, to don some spectacular 1970s/80s gear for his latest outing.
The film finds Bale as Irving Rosenfeld, a Bronx-raised con man who arouses the suspicions of driven FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Cooper).
Under threat of prison, DiMaso forces Rosenfeld and his lover/accomplice Sydney (Adams) to work up the Abscam sting, which saw a US senator and five congressmen convicted on corruption charges.
Along for the ride are Jeremy Renner, Louis C.K., Robert De Niro and Michael Peña. American Hustle arrives in US cinemas on December 25 and over here in time for Boxing Day.
