We are just months away from the January Oscar nomination date, but one movie expected to get a lot of love this awards is David O. Russell’s American Hustle which hits theaters this December.
We’ve seen a few trailers for the film but today we saw the first character posters released which feature main cast members Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner.
Here’s a quick synopsis of American Hustle in case you’re wondering what it’s about.
The story of a con artist and his partner in crime, who were forced to work with a federal agent to turn the tables on other cons, mobsters, and politicians – namely, the volatile mayor of impoverished Camden, New Jersey.
The film is another collaboration between Russell and Bale, Cooper, Adams and Lawrence who all starred in one of Russell’s last two Oscar nominated films. Bale won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role in The Fighter while Lawrence took home last year’s Best Supporting Actress Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook.
So far everything we’ve seen from American Hustle makes it look like it will be an Oscar contender and we should only expect to see more from the film as we near it’s December release date in the heart of awards season.
