Patrick Bateman Has Really Let Himself Go: 'American Hustle' Posters Are Retro Delights.

By Jodi Clager | Trade News | October 3, 2013 | Comments ()


David O Russell’s newest film, American Hustle, has a really sexy cast. Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale, Jeremy Renner, and Amy Adams are all sponge-worthy, people. Maybe a couple of them look a bit…less sexy in their 70s garb (COUGHBalePaunchCOUGH), but I’m willing to let it pass because the movie sounds pretty great:

“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.”

Ah, New Jersey.That explains Renner’s hair.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Tina

    I want these posters as Burger King glasses.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    I either want to be with or become Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence. Maybe both.
    Jesus they look gorgeous.

    Renner, no matter what they do to your hair and wardrobe, I love you too.

  • Karlew

    My Renner love knows no limits.

  • Jiffylush

    Is it just me, or are the women way, way more attractive than the dudes here? I never thought Bradley Cooper or Jeremy Renner were attractive. Not ugly, and decent actors, but not hot by any means. (Christian Bale gets a pass forever.) But damn, Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence are stunning.

  • Allijo

    The trailer is giving me hope that Amy Adams is going to crush this role.

  • Berry

    I kind of wish huge, curly hair like Amy Adams is rocking here wasn't so shunned by Hollywood types these days. I'm tired of everyone flat ironing their tresses to glossy, lifeless perfection. Bring back the riotous curls, damn it, hair stylists to the stars!

  • pisswizard

    I've searched the dark recesses of my soul, and I have to shamefacedly admit that even with that weird lego milk duds hair, B-Coops is still totally bangable.

  • Uriah_Creep

    I don't know that it's your soul that needed searching...

  • pisswizard

    ...wait, you're not referring to my lady cave, are you? because I can't go in there. it's dark and full of spiders.

  • Uriah_Creep

    Lady cave, eh? I must admit, your Disqus handle led me to believe you were a guy, seeing as we men are endlessly fond of testing our pissal accuracy (or lack thereof). But in your case, I'm sure you can find some hardy men willing to explore the cave and report back on their findings.

  • ryallen

    Jen... wooooow.

  • Wigamer

    I feel like, had he not become an actor, that is exactly what Christian Bale would look like right now.

  • Monica

    I'd still hit it, re: Bale.

  • bonnie

    It's like they Dorian Grey'd Patrick Bateman. Christian Bale is going to chew the scenery right outta that role, and it's going to be awesome.

  • sanity fair

    As I have said before, I am going to watch the fuck out of this movie and love every second of it!! Even if it's just for the eye candy. Granted Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence are mostly the eye candy with my "half-beer bisexual" thing, but they're all still gorgeous, and Bale with a paunch is still BALE.

  • I already kind of love this movie. Bale can do no wrong.

  • sanity fair

    I am totally with you. Bale as an actor is more perfect than anyone has any right to be. And with the rest of the cast? I cannot foresee NOT loving this movie.

  • Cover everything but Renner's mouth and he looks disturbingly like Harvey Keitel. That's terrifying.

    And heehee, just when you think the Emu's hair can't get any more laughable, they go and give him Justin Timberlake's Ramen Hair from 1998.

  • Karlew

    This proves that I love Jeremy Renner for more than just his looks. Because that hair...

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    Renner just has a face where everything goes wrong, and yet, it's so very right. I liken him to my diehard crush on Robert Mitchum, who also has an...interesting...face.

  • Maguita NYC

    The cheap perm on Bradley Cooper is distracting me from my usual love for manfur.

  • flickfan

    What, they couldn't find any actual Jewish or Italian actors for these roles?

  • chanohack

    My girlfriend looks good in everything, does she not?

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    Can you call your girlfriend and have her visit me for hair styling tips? She can bring her friend Amy too.

  • sanity fair

    Which is your girlfriend? (Not that it really matters, cuz if I'm drunk, I will steal either from you.)

  • chanohack

    Over my supine corpse! I don't even need a half beer to fight to the death for JLaw! (If things work out between you and Amy, however, we should totally double date and just bask in the glow of their surely-hilarious American Hustle stories. You know where to find me.)

  • sanity fair

    Giving up JLaw? But I'd get Amy? I might maybe COULD be convinced/bribed into such a deal, but I can't promise I wouldn't still hit on her.

  • chanohack

    I'd be worried about you if you didn't. :)

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    Well, Jennifer Lawrence is my imaginary internet girlfriend, so I can only conclude he's referring to Amy Adams.

    It's awkward, though, because Amy Adams is totally my cougar-y mistress.

  • chanohack

    That downvote is FROM ME, because she's mine, damn you, and also because I thought we were internet friends, Mr. Long Pig, and you don't even know I'm a lady? HOW DARE YOU.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    If you ask around, I believe you'll find I'm absolutely atrocious at keeping genders and handles straight. Don't take it personally; some of my best Internet friends are sometimes accidentally called the wrong sex.

    But I commend your downvote and upvote you in return. It's important that you defend your loves, even if I'm still totally going to try to steal her from you in, like, the nicest possible way.

  • sanity fair

    Considering the fact that right now I am drunk (and I am, according to my fiancee, a "half-beer bisexual"), it really doesn't matter. I would steal both your imaginary internet girlfriend and your cougar-y mistress right now without caring who else they are attached to. They are both on my top five "Lady List."

  • goddammitmrnoodle

    They are both on top of me.

  • sanity fair

    GODDAMMIT MR NOODLE! Why would you break my heart so cruelly?

  • Aaron Schulz

    I need to somehow convince amy adams and jennifer lawrence that they are my wives
