Bradley Cooper has big plans but Christian Bale isn’t so impressed in the newest clip released from David O. Russell’s NYFCC winning latest, “American Hustle.” Cooper plays Richie DiMaso, an FBI agent with big ideas who busts small-time con artists Irving and Sydney (Bale and Amy Adams) and makes them work for him in catching corrupt politicians with a con or two, all wired to record, of course. Jeremy Renner is the New Jersey mayor and target of Richie’s big ideas for video surveillance, but Irving clearly doesn’t relish inRead More
More outrageous Jennifer Lawrence coming at ya in the newest clip released from David O. Russell’s 1970s caper flick “American Hustle,” and this time alcohol is involved so you know things about getting out of control. Lawrence is seen here having dinner with her con man of a husband (Christian Bale), Jeremy Renner’s corrupt New Jersey mayor and Elizabeth Rohm, playing Renner’s wife Dolly. Just like her real life counterpart, Lawrence’s on-screen alter ego Rosalyn is a total scene-stealer, showing off her (apparently scented) nails to Dolly, then demanding thatRead More
We knew from the various trailers and TV spots released thus far that Jennifer Lawrence gives a deliciously outrageous performance in David O. Russell’s latest, “American Hustle,” and today we finally have a nice long clip of an actual scene from the film that seems to reiterate this yet again. Big hair, golden robe and Long Island accent and all, Lawrence’s Rosalyn prepares to make dinner for her husband Irving (Christian Bale) and their kid but immediately burns it instead. He’s clearly resigned to the fact that she’s crazy andRead More
American Hustle
Jennifer Lawrence appears to be the focus in the new TV spot for David O. Russell‘s 1970s crime dramedy “American Hustle.” Alongside Lawrence is an epic cast that includes Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner and Robert De Niro. The film is based on the true story of a 1980s FBI sting operation known as “Abscam,” in which a con artist worked with the FBI to fight corruption in Congress. Bale plays the role of the leading con artist who, along with his mistress (Adams), are forced toRead More
The “Silver Linings Playbook” duo are back in top form as Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper finally get some screentime and promptly steal the show in the newest trailer released today for David O. Russell’s “American Hustle.” All of Russell’s leads get a slice of the spotlight here, which slows down the scenes considerably from the quick-cut montage style of the first trailer. As a result, we get to know our players a little bit more. Amy Adams is seductive and stubborn partner-in-crime to Christian Bale’s pot-bellied, comb-overed con artist,Read More
Casey Affleck gets into some deep trouble and Christian Bale has to bail him out in the new trailer for Scott Cooper’s highly anticipated drama/thriller “Out of the Furnace.” In a role he beat out Garrett Hedlund, Channing Tatum and Taylor Kitsch for, the younger, non-Batman Affleeck is already showing impressive chops as a troubled soldier who turns to illegal underground fighting to make a living after coming home, only to disappear when he crosses the wrong guy (Woody Harrelson as menacing as we’ve ever seen him). Bale, as hisRead More
“Breaking Bad” is almost over but Aaron Paul’s movie career is just beginning. Variety reports the TV alum has been cast alongside Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton in Ridley Scott’s biblical epic “Exodus.” Sigourney Weaver, Ben Kingsley and John Turturo are also joining the growing all-star cast. Bale will play Moses in the film based on one of the Bible’s most iconic figures, he who parted the Red Sea and all that magical stuff. Edgerton is in talks to take on the role of Ramses, who eventually becomes the PharaohRead More
Darren Aronofsky’s got some competition in the biblical epic department. While “Noah”, starring Russell Crowe, Emma Watson and Douglas Booth is in post-production, Ridley Scott is prepping his own big budget blockbuster set in ancient times, with Joel Edgerton now joining Christian Bale in the film titled “Exodus”, according to THR. Bale will play Moses in “Exodus” – after circling Russell’s role in “Noah”, ironically – in the film based on one of the Bible’s most iconic figures, he who parted the Red Sea and all that magical stuff. EdgertonRead More
A little under six months since Jennifer Lawrence won the Oscar for David O. Russell’s “Silver Linings Playbook” and already we are well on our way to seeing their next collaboration. And “American Hustle”, which reunites Lawrence with “Silver Linings” co-star Bradley Cooper and also stars Russell’s “The Fighter” actors Amy Adams and Christian Bale, looks even more batshit insane and awesome. Everyone dons insane 1970s hairstyles to play larger than life characters who were involved in the real life FBI sting operation known as Abscam. Cooper’s agent forces conRead More
De-glamming is a time-honored way for actresses to win Oscars, but can it work for the former People’s Sexiest Man Alive? Bradley Cooper does his best to shed his attractiveness and dons his best 1970s perm in the first photos from David O. Russell’s “Silver Linings Playbook” followup, “American Hustle”, clearly another awards season hopeful, unveiled by USA Today. Russell has gathered a bunch of actors he’s recently worked with together for this film, which also stars Cooper’s “Silver Linings” co-star Jennifer Lawrence and Russell’s “The Fighter” stars Christian BaleRead More
