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.
