The Oscar-nominated writer/director David O. Russell unites a number of his cast from his acclaimed dysfunctional double The Fighter and Silver Linings Playbook for a darkly comic crime caper set in the late 1970s – early 1980s. Following this week’s first television spot for his fictional (although factually inspired) film set in the alluring period of one of the most notorious political scandals to rock the United States, we’ve another along with a first clip.

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. »
