The writer-director David O. Russel (yes, always include the middle initial) is back with a film based on the Abscam operation and has combined the cast of his last two films, The Fighter and Silver Linings Playbook. Based on the trailer alone, this looks like a classic David O. Russel piece that perfectly frames a strange situation into a very relatable viewing experience for the audience. Plus an amazing soundtrack.
As for the cast, Russel able to bring out the Oscar nominations for Amy Adams and Bradley Cooper---and directed Jennifer Lawrence and Christian Bale to their first Oscar wins. I'm interested to see what he can bring out of Jeremy Renner in American Hustle. Affleck was able to get him a nomination, but will Russel help him snag the golden statue?
A limited release is scheduled on December 13, 2013 and a world wide premiere will be on December 25, 2013. SAVE THE DATE!! Then watch the trailer and prepare to be HYPED.
