Watch 4 Clips and 8 Minutes of Behind-the-Scenes Footage from David O. Russell’s AMERICAN HUSTLE

     December 8, 2013


For those who can’t wait for David O. Russell‘s follow-up to Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle opens on December 20.  To whet your appetite, Sony has provided us with four clips and eight minutes of behind-the-scenes footage.  The script by Russell and Eric Singer is based on the Abscam sting operation of the late 1970s.  A con artist team (Christian Bale and Amy Adams) work with an FBI agent (Bradley Cooper) to root out political corruption.  Jennifer Lawrence and Jeremy Renner also star.

American Hustle already won its first Best Picture critics’ award and the Oscar buzz is building, so it’s time to get excited.  Hit the jump to watch the clips and behind-the-scenes footage.

Behind-the-Scenes Footage

Official synopsis:

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.

    This seems pretty trippy from a performance aspect, seems like O’ Russell asked them to turn up the weird for want of a better word. From that standpoint I think I will either love or hate this film, but at the moment I am really looking forward to it.

    Jeniffer Lawrence is so miscast
    This is for somebody way older

    • J.R.

      The reason she is in is because she is hot in hollywood this days! And you have to remember her performance in “Winter’s Bone” she was younger back then…..

    • Benji

      David O. Russell actually wrote the part for her, so she’s the perfect age.

    I’ll pass. This type of Hollywood schmaltz makes me sick. And is anyone surprised they all look like a bunch of fucking porn actors from the 70′s?
    And I bet there are a few over the top, long winded moments by Bail and Cooper.
