This December, David O. Russell is taking us back to the '70s, and he's brought some of his favorite people along for the ride.
The "Silver Linings Playbook" director tapped three of the stars from that Oscar-nominated film, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper, to join him in "American Hustle."
But the amazing amount of talent in the project doesn't stop there: Russell's also managed to pull Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Louis C.K. and Jeremy Renner into his fictional spin on political corruption scandals of the era, drawing inspiration from the ABSCAM sting operation.
The first trailer doesn't offer much - OK, anything, really - in the way of exposition, and instead lets a flurry of quickly cut scenes do all the talking as Led Zeppelin's "Good Times Bad Times" rocks on in the background. The trailer's worth the two minutes of viewing for the hairstyles alone.
"American Hustle" is scheduled to open Christmas Day.
