    American Hustle trailer is out...looks fantastic

    Yes a thousand times over. Been waiting a long time for this and looks great. Bale, Cooper, Adams, Lawrence, Renner, DeNiro. Directed by David O. Russell (The Fighter, Silver Linings Playbook, etc) and based on the true story of ABSCAM in the 70s.

    Based on the trailer and early word of buzz, Amy Adams for the win come Oscar time in supporting.

    Love the Led Zeppellin song used as well. Can't wait

    After watching that, I'm very intrigued but have no clue what the movie is about.

    I'm in though, just for Adams and Lawrence.

    Trailer definitely focuses on characters over plot. It’s a fictionalized account of the notorious Abscam op of the late 70s and early 80s where two con artists (Bale and Adams) worked with a wild FBI agent (Cooper) to uncover political corruption at the highest levels. Their efforts resulted in the conviction of a U.S senator, five Congressmen, and multiple members of the Philadelphia City Council.

    I have a hypothesis: Amy Adams and I would make beautiful babies. The next step is testing this hypothesis.


    It's all snark from here on out

    After all that I thought it was about painting forgeries.
