An “American Hustle” trailer is making its rounds online after premiering on Good Morning America during an interview with the film’s director, David O Russell. With an award-winning all star cast, the 70’s period film is already ringing the Oscar bells, even though Sony has been quiet about the movie until now.
Russell reunites the cast of his two previous movies, “The Fighter” and “Silver Linings Playbook,” for a fictionalized retelling of Operation Abscam, a famous FBI sting operation that initially targeted a group trafficking stolen property, but eventually lead to the downfall of six members of Congress.
“American Hustle” stars an impressive pedigree of actors and actresses including Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Jennifer Lawrence, and Robert De Niro. The film is set for a December 25th release, just in time to be a contender for next year’s Academy Awards.
