Just two months until David O. Russell‘s American Hustle hits theaters on December 13. The story is based on the Abscam sting operation that uncovered widespread political corruption in the late 1970s. We have seen the awesome “Good Times Bad Times” trailer and a few images, but no poster. Fortunately, Steve has you covered: He snapped photos of character posters for Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, and Jennifer Lawrence on the way to a screening.
We expect Sony to officially release these online at some point (likely with an Amy Adams poster to complete the set), so check back for higher resolution down the road. Hit the jump for an early taste. [Update: Sony has sent over the official high-resolution versions of the posters, complete with Amy Adams. Check them out after the jump.]

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.
